Exhibition of art by Cathy Read's 4950 Painting Series Exhibition poster


In January 2018 I set myself a challenge to create 50 paintings in a year. All the paintings are/will be 49 sq inches and are of architecture details. All the paintings will be 7″ x 7″ – that’s 49 square inches. Hence the title 49 50. I kept them small intentionally, with the focus on architectural aspects or details allowing me to bring out the details in the same way I can in my larger paintings.

Take a Trip to Marylebone Exhibition at The Stables Claydon Courtyard

Take a Trip to Marylebone

The exhibition showcases London’s streets with a contemporary focus but this isn’t just a visual delight, It’s also an auditory experience with the artist herself guiding you on the tour of her work. The word unique is overused but, if you are looking for a new perspective, it’s here.
