Geoffrey Preston is one of the UK’s leading architectural sculptors, specializing in sculpture and decorative plasterwork and in particular the art of stucco. He has been at the helm of many award-winning projects and this new exhibition highlights his work and places in its historical context.
The exhibition includes a range of Geoffrey Preston's work, from small, beautifully modelled relief panels, to a wildly exuberant new Rococo ceiling. Design drawings and photographs of some of his principal commissions are also on display. Historic plasterwork from the museum’s collections provides an interesting context, showing how styles, materials and techniques have developed over three centuries. Booking Information:
Open Tuesday to Sunday, 10am to 5pm. Closed Mondays and bank holidays. Admission free.
