Cambridge Open Studios Part 2: What to see north of the river



Some Open Studios to visit in CB3 and CB4



I've written about Melanie Max before and last year I saw her exhibition in Ely and was entranced.    I really look forward to her ice blue seascapes and minimal compositions and subtle textures.  I could gaze at these for hours.

•  Rowan

If you've never visited this initiative, dedicated to bringing art and people with learning disabilities together, you'll be surprised at the lovely atmosphere and the great variety of work.  I went some years ago and found it a happy-making experience with unusual and diverse art.

•  Mohammed Djazmi


Mohammed Djazmi had an exhibition at the Williams Art Gallery recently.  I saw it and liked it.  There will also be more minimal landscapes of the kind that appeals to me.
