An exhibition showcasing four local artists is running at the King's Art Centre until 17 March. "King's Connections" features the work of Terry Beard, Natalie McIntyre, Stephen Murfitt and Stuart Green. All were formerly art teachers at the King's School, Ely.

The exhibition encompasses a variety of styles and media. Terry Beard's uses acrylics and collage to produce colourful abstract works. She explores how colour can create depth and form.

Natalie McIntyre is fascinated by insects and has produced a series of meticulously-drawn portraits and collage works of insects. Stephen Murfitt is inspired by landscape and his mixed media canvases have a textured, earthy quality to them.

Finally Stuart Green creates vessels that he subjects to the Raku firing process. This results in rich and varied surfaces, which he decorates with hand-rendered marks.

The King's Art Centre is on 'A' staircase, which is the first door on the left as you enter the Front Court of the college. It is open 10am - 4pm daily and entry is free. See the Exhibitions page.
