Beauty/beast, town/gown, sanity/genius...

22 CAM (Cambridge Arts Movement) artists expressing their views of Cambridge, from beauty to controversy in a group show entitled ‘my CAMbridge’. 

So what is special about Cambridge? What does it mean to the creative mind? The members of CAM have their own take on this subject.

Among those participating are:

Nicholas James Juett is known for paintings of the streets of his home city, using his trademark vibrant colours. His subject for my CAMbridge is Gonville & Caius and the Senate House...but with a twist.

Nick Ellis has been beavering away on ‘The REALLY Big Nick Ellis Map of Cambridge’. This is not a normal ‘map’ but a bird’s eye extravaganza (it will be about 2 metres square) with fine detail available for scrutiny.

Marcus Nisbet adds a surreal touch to a very familiar Cambridge landmark with 'The Castle in the Air', featuring the Mill viewed from Hills Road Bridge.

Jane Commin will be showing familiar details from the Botanic Gardens.

Robert Good strays from his trademark witty words with a special Cambridge 'box'.

Neil Warmsley has become one of Cambridge's most collectable landscape artists with his instantly-recognisable treescapes.

Maureen Mace mixes her cows with whimsical fantasy, often set against college backgrounds.

James Ward continues to surprise and delight, this time with Hearth.

Rosemary Catling evokes memories of summer sun with her Jesus Pool etchings and prints.

Tess Recordon explores the space between landscape and abstraction with a view of the Cam as it winds from her home village of Grantchester.

Alexandra Drysdale is showing an original pastel of willows flanking the Cam in Grantchester Meadow.

Jim Gintner is a young photographer who captures the beauty of Cambridge in light.

The other exhibiting artists include Geertje Anderson, Ashley Baldwin-Smith, Mohammed Djazmi, Chrissie Havers, Rebecca Ilett, Alison Litherland, Valerie Sims, Victoria Sponge, Marina Yedigaroff, Gail de Cordova.

Here are just a few of the works shown at Williams Art (reduced exhibition at Addenbrooke’s - the first 7 works are on show plus one other not shown here):
