July/August exhibition 'Derby Cathedral Past and Present'

June 2016

Derby Cathedral, Past and Present is the title of the exhibition in the Sir Richard Morris Lounge at Derby Cathedral Centre throughout July and August. In celebration of its recent refurbishment Juliet Goodden worked as artist in residence during December creating several works reflecting people responding to the newly refurbished interior. These will be hung along with historic pictures on loan from Derby Museums showing not only the exterior but also the interior of the Cathedral as it was during the nineteenth century. Together these pictures present an invaluable insight into the atmosphere and use of the Cathedral during two hundred years. Trained at Central St Martin’s School of Art, Juliet has considerable experience as an artist in residence and enjoys learning from those she meets while drawing in very diverse settings. One of her Derby paintings has recently been selected for the John Moores Painting Prize at the Liverpool Biennial.

The Exhibition will open on Friday 1st July, with a special launch at 5pm, and continue until Wednesday 31st August, Monday to Saturday 9am to 5pm, closed Sundays and Bank Holidays.
