Letting in the Light, Fountains Abbey (pastel painting by Lynne Brown)

Sensing Space: Streets, Green Houses and Sofas: The Enchantment of Everyday Encounters

  • 11 March — 10 April 2015

The Museum Of Classical Archaeology presents Sensing Space, an exhibition of large pastel paintings by Cambridge artist Lynne Brown. The images capture the enchantment of ordinary spaces - from street to green houses and alleyways.

Inspired by her daily encounters and everyday movements, the artist looks at the play between real and social space. The technique of layered mark making creates a richly sensorial experience of the places depicted in each painting.

Find out more about Lynne and her work at www.lynne-brown.com.

Please note that the Museum and exhibition can be visited on weekdays only.

  • Any age
