Cockneys in Arcadia: C.R. Ashbee in Chipping Campden

7 April - 9 July 2017

This major exhibition of 2017 curated by experts Alan Crawford and Mary Greensted is the first to showcase C R Ashbee’s Campden period and will include the full range of Ashbee’s work during that time, as a designer of furniture, metalwork, silver, jewellery and printed books.  It includes pieces held by private lenders not seen by the public before.

This is the first exhibition to showcase C.R. Ashbee’s Campden period. There have been two exhibitions before on Ashbee, one at Cheltenham Art Gallery and Museum in 1981 which travelled to Mappin Art Gallery, Sheffield and Fine Art Society, London and one at the Geffrye Museum in 1999 which concentrated on CR Ashbee in East London. It will also be the first time many of the items will have been seen by the public as we are borrowing material from a number of private lenders.
