Private View

CMCI’s Dr Richard Howells has had the unusual experience of being invited to open an art exhibition. He responded with “a few well-chosen words” at the private view of the Leamington Studio Artists 2010 Summer Exhibition. The show was organised by the sociologist Gordon Fyffe, a good friend to CMCI, and Richard (pictured on the right of the group photo) was delighted to follow in the distinguished footsteps of screenwriter Andrew Davies, who did the previous year’s opening. Richard shamelessly dropped the names of Tracey Emin and David Hockney while also making some more serious points about the relationship between art theory and the practice of studio art.
