Cambridge School of Art students present Through the Red Door
Eight emerging artists, all postgraduate students from Cambridge School of Art, are to stage an exhibition in the crypt at the Zion Baptist Chapel on Bradmore Street, Cambridge. Through the Red Door is a mix of painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture and more.
MA course leader Dr Véronique Chance said: “The crypt space at the Zion Baptist Chapel is not your traditional or typical gallery space, and as such it offers these emerging artists the opportunity to challenge themselves in the presentation and display of their work, which will react to the unusual features and architecture of this basement location, as much as the external sites they have responded to.
“The viewer should also be challenged in terms of their expectations. The shadow image of the heron spray-painted on the red door to the crypt by coincidence makes an interesting visual connection with the ARU heron logo, leading the viewer to ponder on a possible connection and to wonder what is indeed ‘Through the Red Door’.”
Exhibiting artist Emily Andreasson added: “One of the most exciting things about curating this exhibition has been the ability to collaborate with artists and friends that I deeply respect, and the prospect of being able to share and engage our work with a live audience.”
The artists exhibiting are: Emily Andreasson, Caroline Brown, Sara Clark, Niall MacCrann, Shanielle Monangai, Mick Paulusma, Rosie (no surname), and Jenny Seabrook.
Following a private viewing tomorrow (Thursday, March 31), the exhibition runs from Friday, April 1, at 12-7pm, to Tuesday, April 5 (closed Monday, April 4), at 12-5pm.
