Critic's Choice by Jackie Wullschlager
A celebration of 40 years of the gallery's association with Piper, this brings together rare and diverse paintings, prints, textiles, ceramics with an emphasis on the inspiration this British romantic artist drew from every manner of architecture and ecclesiastical motifs - the early 'Valle Crucis Abbey' 1940 and 'Beauvale Priory' by moonlight; lovely studies for church windows; the interior of 'Kirtling, Cambridgeshire' - as well as work from Venice and France'.

"When Patricia Jordan Evans first opened the Bohun Gallery in 1974 she could hardly have imagined that the local 'famous' artist, John Piper, would soon become part of the exhibition programme for the next 40 years.... A wide ranging, celebratory show which covers most aspects of his prolific output. There was seemingly nothing Piper couldn't put his mind and hand to, from ceramics and photography to tapestry and stained glass and examples of most of them are included here alongside a splendid cross section of the paintings, collages and prints that form the core of his output ... In short an excellent celebration of Piper's remarkable ouput".
