Jean Bell & Tom Pemberton

02 March - 05 April 2018

The late Tom Pemberton was an alumnus of Leeds Arts University and subsequently principal lecturer at Canterbury College of Art.

His wife, Jean Bell, persuaded him to go to art school where, among other experimental techniques, he developed an abstract approach which Bell also practiced at home. Although they were both dedicated landscape and still-life painters, this small, selective display will survey the couple’s investigations into the realm of abstraction, pattern and visual dialogues.

A text by Jon Wood (Head of Research at the Henry Moore Institute) will accompany this exhibition.


Rescheduled Preview: Thursday 15 March 5-7pm
Free entry. Refreshments will be served and everyone is welcome. Booking not required.
