‘The Royal Academy at Wolfson’ is an extraordinary exhibition, curated by Anthony Green RA, which includes paintings, prints, drawings and small sculptures that have been lent to the College by the artists. Many of these works have never been exhibited before and, as a group, they represent some of the finest art being produced in Britain today.

With free admission, the exhibition will be open to the public on Saturday and Sunday afternoons 2–4pm from 31 January to 19 December 2015. It will feature works by the following Royal Academicians: Ivor Abrahams, Eileen Cooper, Gus Cummins, Anthony Eyton, Peter Freeth, Paul Huxley, Timothy Hyman, Neil Jeffries, Sonia Lawson, Ben Levene, Christopher Le Brun, Chris Orr, Mick Rooney, Anthony Whishaw and Anthony Green himself.

The exhibition is the first in an outstanding programme of modern and contemporary art events designed to celebrate Wolfson College’s 50th anniversary. One of the most cosmopolitan of the 31 Colleges in the University of Cambridge, Wolfson is a leading academic research institution with fellows, postgraduate students, and mature undergraduates from 80 countries around the world. Distinguished by its modernity and diversity, but also by its informality and egalitarianism, Wolfson was the first College to admit men and women as both students and fellows. Professor Sir Richard Evans FBA, Regius Professor of History until 2014 and currently Provost of Gresham College, London, is the fifth President of the College.

‘The Royal Academy at Wolfson’ will also be accompanied by the display of a significant and unique collection of pottery from renowned potter Bernard Leach CBE. This collection was recently donated to the College by his colleagues and students, and will feature alongside works by other notable potters, including: Richard Batterham, Clive Bowen, Amanda Brier, Alan Brough, Ray Finch, John Leach and Bill Marshall.


Admission is free via the Porter’s Lodge, Barton Road.
