Exploring Cambridge > Art in Cambridge
We are particularly fond of Kettle’s Yard House, the home of a former curator at the Tate Gallery which houses his personal collection of art. A gallery for modern art is attached. (However, it is closed until mid 2017 because of major building works.) The Fitzwilliam Museum has works ranging from the fourteenth century to the present day.

The New Hall Art Collection, consisting solely of work by women artists, is probably the most significant collection of its kind in Europe. It is part of Murray Edwards college, a women's college of the University of Cambridge. The Lynn Strover Gallery, which is a pleasant 45 minute walk away along the river (or 15 minutes by car), holds exhibitions of the work of established contemporary artists. Other commercial galleries in the city centre include Byard Art and Cambridge Contemporary Art.

Cambridge Open Studios provides an opportunity for the public to meet artists in their studios, seeing their work and how it is produced. It takes place over the four weekends of July. The Cambridge Drawing Society holds an annual exhibition at the Cambridge Guildhall, usually in April.

Primavera is a gallery and shop situated opposite King's College offering a wide range of modern art and crafts. Tindalls in King Street, a short walk from us, has a good supply of art materials if you feel inspired to create artwork during your visit!
