It’s somewhat unusual for a Physics & Astronomy department to have an annual art exhibition, but this is our seventh year, and we have a wonderful mix of styles and media on show, from within the department, and across the University. Tim Richardson was a great supporter of this initiative, and regularly displayed his own paintings, and installations featuring apples in various stages of decay:
This year we depart from tradition in two ways. Firstly, we normally select two local charities to which donations from visitors, and commission from work sold at the show will be donated – this year and in the future, all our proceeds will go to Inspiration for Life, and thus will benefit our partner charities, such as Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity, Rotherham Hospice, St Luke’s and Bluebell Wood. Secondly, we usually only show work that hasn’t been in our exhibition previously – this year, as a special tribute to Tim, we have a display of his paintings, which show yet another facet of this remarkable and creative man. Many thanks to Sue for loaning the pictures to us.
So, if you’re in the neighbourhood, call in and look around. We’ll be open between 10.00 and 16.00, Wednesday 22-Friday 24 May, in E32 in the Hicks Building at the University.
Hope to see you there!
