See http://100.rgspaces.org.uk to find out more about our 100 Paintings of Reading project with local artist Liz Kerry. An ambtious project to create 100 small oil paintings of spaces around Reading.
We are working with several University-related organisations and the Two Rivers Press, aiming to open up the Acacias on London Road during the national Heritage Open Days in September, with a particular emphasis on Edith Morley, the country’s first female professor who was also noted for her work with refugees and her campaigning for women’s education and suffrage. The Acacias was a Palmer family residence which they donated to the University College Reading.
We are working with Reading Central Library to refurbish their exhibition space and make it better known. It now has new spot lighting and hanging system. The Library offers the space for local artists and others for a rolling programme of exhibitions. We are running a small website holybrook.gallery which has information on exhibitions and how to book the space.
