One of Cambridge's most renowned, and certainly most colourful, artists – Nicholas James Juett – is bringing his iconic bridge series to a close in Cam Bridges under Construction. The exhibition offers an insight into the process of creating a Juett oil painting, and the opportunity to influence how it evolves.

Juett studied in Cambridge in the 1980s and has painted more than seventy of his hallmark Cambridge streets, but it wasn't until he sat in the Oak Bistro on Lensfield Road and chatted to local residents in January 2010 that he moved his focus to the bridges the city is known for, and began sketching them in watercolours. Over the last two years Juett has painted all the bridges of Cambridge, with the one exception of the A14, and is the resident artist for DPA Architects in King Street.

Cam Bridges under Construction presents works from this series at a variety of stages, from inception to completion, and visitors to Williams Art will see both oil painting and Cambridge with fresh eyes.

Also on display are prints of watercolours by Wolfson College Boat Club’s treasurer Tom Davies; discovered by Juett in the attic of the Fort St. George, these 1990 and 2004 drawings depict views from around Midsummer Common footbridge and evoke the history of the river, complementing Juett’s series.
