Three arty things to do in June

So yes.  I got so excited about Cambridge Open Studios that I forgot to post what's on in the world of art in June!  I do apologise.

Here are my top three picks:

1.  Cambridge School of Art:  Fine Art Degree Show

Only a few days to go with this one, so don't miss out!  And watch these artists; they may be the Rachel Whitereads of the future, you never know.

I always like going to the Degree Show and plan to see it today.  You get to support young artists (while their work is still affordable!).  While you're there, also check out the other degree shows:  Illustration, Fashion, Photography.

Where and when:
Ruskin Gallery, on the campus of Anglia Ruskin University (closest to the Collier Rd entrance, corner Mackenzie Rd; CB1 2AH)

Ends Fri, 14 June 2013.

2. About Face:  Melissa Castrillón at the Drawing Cube

posted about this lovely new gallery last week.  Really worth a visit!  And afterwards nip next-door into CB2 or the Box Café for a hot cup of something. 

Where and when:
9 Norfolk St, next to CB2.
13 June - 20 July 2013.

3. Pompeii Live at Cineworld

Click on the image above to see the promotional trailer.  Or watch the video at youtube:

This is a weird new thing:  You know how operas and West End plays are these days beaming their productions to cinemas across the land?  Well, now the British Museum has  muscled in on the act with a 'live' (?) showing of their Pompeii exhibition.  I have no idea what is going to be shown in this film.  The trailer seems to promise clouds of ash and action-packed music.

From the trailer:  The British Museum presents:  79 AD.  [...]  Your own exclusive private view.

I may be getting just a teensy bit tired of the British Museum's hyped-up self-promotion (I ranted about their Ice Age labels) but could this be the future of exhibitions?

In which case, be there to witness it.

The Museum of Classical Archaeology will be hosting a table in the foyer from 6 pm.

Where and when:
Tues, 18 June, at Cineworld. 7 pm.


And of course, many of the May exhibitions are still on throughout June!   I picked some out for you.
