October 2018: Tony Nero "Heritage Places & Spaces"

A celebration of Heritage sites of Peterborough - A new collection of drawings by Tony Nero
"I'm really pleased to announce that due to the high interest in this exhibition, Norman Cross Gallery has allowed me to continue the exhibition throughout October.

"As artist in residence at the Norman Cross Gallery, this exhibition features 14 new pieces of works, of some of the Heritage sites and buildings in Peterborough with a focus on the Norman Cross site the first prisoner of war camp during the Napoleonic War to the Gates Memorial in Bishop's Road Gardens. All works are produced in either pencils, charcoal, pastels or pencils and pastels.

"During the course of creating these pieces, I was often tempted to paint some of the pieces but held back, as I really wanted to stick to the basic mediums. It’s very strange and also a nice change not doing any painting for so many months.

"I would also like to add that this exhibition is not the end of this project, but more half way in. More work is being added to the collection and continues into the months ahead, with views of developing the project. During the course of the exhibition you can see a new drawing being developed."
