Art depicting our desire to be somewhere else is on show at Rugby School’s Lewis Gallery until Thursday, November 24.

The show, called Elsewhere, brings together the work of three artists – Angelina May Davis, Angela Maloney and Annette Pugh.

Working with painting, photography, print and drawing, they each explore the desire for “somewhere other”.

Annette said: “To be elsewhere, to pretend or discover a world beyond the everyday, is a strong human instinct.

“The images we have created inform the viewer of the existence of a time or place removed from the here and now.”

Annette believes the exhibition “looks at and past the familiar”, with “each artist becoming an explorer”.

She added that the exhibition asks visitors to “suspend their reality and encounter an alternative place”.
