Local artist Nick Kennedy is returning to the Gallery at Elizabeth House in July with his 2017 series of stunningly colourful paintings entitled “Home & Away”. It’s an exhibition combining his most recent paintings from travels abroad to Prague, Budapest and Vienna and local scenes by the Thames, focusing on the balance of light and colour.
There will be an open day with refreshments on Saturday 1st July from 10am to 5pm, to which all are welcome, and the gallery will also be open each Saturday in July between 10am and 4pm.

Past Exhibitions include Wolfson College, Oxford; Windsor and Norden Farm Arts Centres; Maidenhead Art on the Street; Cookham Festivals and South Bucks Art Week.
