Painting at The Cass

Exhibition by eight artists who also teach at The Sir John Cass School of Art, Architecture and Design

Date: 26 February 2019

Painting at The Cass is an exhibition of paintings by eight practitioners who also teach at the Cass, taking place in the Atrium space at the school from 1 to 21 March.

While painting is the main creative occupation for each artist, they tutor across different courses and their work takes diverse approaches to the medium. Seen together they illustrate the variety of approaches in current painting practice.

Talking about the Painting at The Cass, the exhibition's curator John Coleman said, “To love painting means to engage in the tactile surface and a process that is unique to the medium and also to invest in something that is singular and not repeatable or reproducible. Paintings need to be experienced in the flesh and the Cass Atrium space, being so public and open with its long high bays will offer a great opportunity for the work by these artists to be both taken in at once and to be seen individually.”

The exhibition will open with a Private View on the 28 February from 5.30pm – 7.30pm

The painters in this exhibition are Michael Stubbs, David Price, Andrea Medjesi Jones, Karen David, Bob and Roberta Smith, John Cash, David Hobson and John Coleman.
