Birmingham Landmarks Caught On Canvas – in new exhibition

A collection of 98 works capturing city living have gone on display at the RBSA gallery in the Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham.

Well known local landmarks are brought to life on canvas including the old Central Library, The Cube and Broad Street’s Hall of Memory.

Catch a close-up view of the cranes as they work and shape the skyline of the city.  There must have been many to choose from as Birmingham has been busy regenerating sections of the centre.

There is also a fascinating look at a red door.  Not usually the kind of image that looks good on canvas. In this case it is fascinating.

Watching workmen through a glass ceiling is another outstanding piece of work.  The artist has captured the reality of repairs being carried out.  They are vividly outlined on the glass roof.  An incredible scene for canvas.

The amazing night view also a highlight of the exhibition. Flashing car lights with the sun setting in the sky as the city comes to life for night-time entertainment.  Crowds on the street to enjoy a warm summer’s evening.

Buildings are a strong feature on show.  There are new structures and old ones.  A letter box on a wall stands out as a feature

The exhibition is open until 30 September.
