Porters art exhibition

Head Porters are the unsung heroes of our Colleges and are the subject of a special exhibition by local portrait artist Louise Riley-Smith.  Louise decided to celebrate our Porters after her husband, a retired professor suggested it would be an interesting project. She spent around six hours with each porter, including our own Andy Taylor, to produce twenty five portrait paintings.  These will now be displayed in a special exhibition running from the 18th May – 24th June at The Pitt Building, Trumpington Street, Cambridge CB2 1RP. 

Louise Riley-Smith has completed commissioned portraits which include members of the diplomatic and civil services, senior academics and decorated military personnel.  For more information on this exhibition and the artist see http://www.louiseriley-smith.co.uk/
