PERFECT Clearness is the name of a new art exhibition from Rugby Artists’ Group - the in-house collective of artists of Rugby Art Gallery and Museum.

The exhibition, held at the gallery, runs from Tuesday April 17 to Saturday April 28.

Accrding to artist Laurence G Tilley the artists were challenged to respond to the title, Perfect Clearness, which comes from a quotation of Swiss philosopher, poet and critic Henri-Frederic Amiel (1821 to 1881), who said: “The man who insists on seeing with perfect clearness before he decides, never decides.”

The work on display uses a wide array of media as well as more traditional forms of 2D and 3D art.

Laurence said: “Rugby Art Gallery has become well known for the diversity of media used by its artists and visitors to this exhibition should expect to see most forms of two and three dimensional art represented. Much of the work is also for sale.”

Rugby Artists’ Group was founded in 2003 as Rugby Artists’ Support Group and provides networking, support and development opportunities for local artists.

Drop by Rugby Art Gallery from April 17. Opening hours are Tuesday to Friday 10am to 5pm, Saturday 10am to 4pm. The gallery is closed Sunday and Monday.
