AN ARTIST who has set her sights on a town’s architecture for inspiration will be exhibiting on home turf this month.
Artist and printmaker Claire Hynds, who grew up in Stevenage, will be holding an exhibition at Stevenage Museum which explores the town’s modern architecture.
Best known for work held at London-based the Victoria and Albert Museum, National Gallery and London Bankside Gallery, Claire will be displaying her work on home soil for Transient Vista, which runs from March 23 until May 4.
Speaking about her art, Claire, a lecturer at Kensington and Chelsea College and the University of West London, said: “I am intrigued by the planners’ utopian vision for the New Town development and, having grown up in Stevenage, I am interested in the experience of moving around and living amongst these buildings.”
Borough councillor Howard Burrell, executive member for children and young People, sport and leisure, added: “We’re very excited to welcome a home-grown artist who has gone on to achieve critical acclaim, back to Stevenage.
