The University of Greenwich Galleries is delighted to invite you to this event to mark the closing of the In the City exhibition.

Curated by Trevor Burgess in association with East Gallery, Norwich University of the Arts, In the City brings together the work of nine established painters dealing with imagery of the city and ideas around urban space in locations ranging from the UK, Bangladesh, France, Canada, Myanmar, the USA, and India.

More than half of the world’s population now lives in cities and artists have long represented city life in their work. In this exhibition, the ever-changing contemporary urban environment is captured through the process of painting, with the artists drawing on personal experience, memories, newspaper or photographic images and transforming them through paint.

Exhibiting artists:

Trevor Burgess, Stephen Carter, Mark Crofton Bell, Marguerite Horner, Barbara Howey, Matthew Krishanu, Lee Maelzer, Jock McFadyen, and Tanmoy Samanta.
