Information about visiting the Art Rooms
If you are not a member of the University or King’s College you will need an invitation to visit the Art Rooms to show at the main gate on King’s Parade. Please ask for an invitation by emailing the artist or agent (see email address in the exhibition information). The invitation can be printed or displayed on a mobile phone.
The Art Rooms are at the top of Staircase A. Turn left after the main gate and head for the entrace up a few steps in front of you. This leads to the student bar and coffee shop. Just before the main door to the bar and at the top of the few steps there is a white door on the left. Go through and climb two flights of stairs to the second floor. Please note there is no lift access. If the Art Room main door is closed, please enquire at the Porter’s Lodge. Please bear in mind this is not a public gallery or a fully managed exhibition space and the Rooms are used for a variety of activities. For more information please email Dr. Nigel Meager: .
An Exhibition of Abstract Art – The Pavilion Group – April 8 to April 22
Dennis Goldsmith writes:
“We are a newly formed group exploring the boundaries of abstract art. Some of us are well-established artists with a wide portfolio of work, others are new to all forms of art. Each week, since October 2018, we have been working together, experimenting, sharing ideas, and seeing where this leads. Our sessions are a journey beginning, say, by trying to capture music on paper or, just using black and white or, ripping up last week’s work and turning it into a collage. Anything can happen. If the mood takes us we’ll work collaboratively on long ‘wallpaper’ pieces reacting to, and sometimes layering over, other people’s work. We are encouraged and guided in this adventure by Colin Whitworth, who started up and ran abstract art groups for the University of the Third Age for nine years.”

Oluwasemilore “Semi” Delano. - Retelling Retrospect - April 30 - May 30
Semi Delano writes:
"This display brings together new and existing works from my ongoing portfolio, which is comprised of work tethered to a daily experience of space. Through a variation of media, the work explores, an understanding of how individuals, including myself, navigate the world around us with an awareness of spatial, cultural and personal difference. It is a densely layered composition mundane moments, a catalogue of space, both physical and mental, which elaborates on the complexity of the contemporary experience. It questions your experience of dwelling or rather, existing and explores how we attach memory to moments to gain a sense of value. Rarely does the work meet the viewer's gaze but seems bound up in moments of intimacy or reflection that are left open to interpretation.
A close friend of mine once asked me, what I would want people to think looking at my work, and I replied, “I feel like there is nothing to see or do here”. The narrative remains ambiguous as the work is concerned with navigating a space compromised of my personal diasporic experience influenced by western training. A subjective experience making a statement about a multifarious reality."
