Exhibitions

Gurminder Sikand Tree Spirits 1991

Exhibition: The Goddess, the Deity & the Cyborg

Drawing from the works in The Women’s Art Collection as well as loans from public and private collections, the exhibition explores the enduring appeal of the goddess and traces how artists have adapted and even transformed the goddess into an ambiguous figure undefined by gender or even bodily form.

Will Carter - Man of Letters

Mon 24 October 2022 - Wed 14 December 2022

Magdalene College, The Robert Cripps Gallery

Honorary Fellow of Magdalene College, Will Carter OBE (1977), was a master craftsman - printer, typographer, calligrapher, carver of wood and slate - for whom good design was “a matter of seeing the simplest way of doing something, which is usually the best”.

He is regarded as amongst the finest lettering artists of his generation and the post-war era.

His fascination with the letter form is evidenced in his skill as a calligrapher, compositor-printer, lettering artist, typeface designer, and letter carver.

The Exhibition shows examples of Carter’s skill as a printer, typographer and font designer; hand-cut letters rendered in stone and wood; book jacket designer; and the well-worn tools he used to create signs, plaques and more personal artefacts.
