Artworks inspired by the great outdoors at Byard Art
Byard Art, the contemporary gallery right in the centre of Cambridge, always surprises and delights with its exciting programme of exhibitions throughout the year.
To get you in the mood for the beauty and vitality of spring, they are exhibiting a range of artworks inspired by the great outdoors in Garden Delights, from 5 to 30 May. Featuring a range of media, from ceramic and metalwork to print, painting and sculpture, it will showcase the work of a broad selection of artists.
Fletcher Prentice’s paintings are a celebration of the beauty of the natural world and of paint itself, and his work for this exhibition, including Robin on Flowers and Summer Garden with Kingfisher, are gorgeously evocative of English springtime at its luscious best.
Maria Rivans’ work could not be more of a contrast, with her striking collages formed from a melange of vintage photography and other ephemera, while Amanda Cobbett’s printed textiles, featuring fungi, are a reminder of the more earthy delights of the season. And if you – like me – wish that the trees could be covered in ravishing blossom throughout the entire year, you’ll love Jack Frame’s evocations of blossom trees, rendered with oil paints on silver.
