Join the Friends for a visit to minimalist abstract artist Tabitha Millett’s studio, followed by an opportunity to view a small collection of quite different contemporary paintings by artists with ties to Cambridge.

Tabitha’s studio is inside the Faculty of Education at the University of Cambridge. As well as a painter, she is also assistant professor in the arts, creativity and education course. This will be a rare opportunity to see her work before it is sent off to various galleries, and consider both the simplicity and the complexity of her monochrome paintings. Tabitha will not only talk about her creative process, but also the challenges she faces balancing her art with teaching students. All her work is connected under common goals, to explore monochrome, contrast, tension, texture, line and form. As she says “I aim to take minimalism to the max”.

We are then invited for refreshments to the home of Nicki and Christie Marrian with an opportunity to view their small collection of paintings by contemporary artists with ties to Cambridge.
