Tony Nero’s Heritage Places and Spaces

These drawings were first shown at the Norman Cross Gallery in September and October 2018 and features a collection of works, of some of the Heritage sites and buildings in Peterborough. With a focus on the Norman Cross site the first prisoner of war camp during the Napoleonic War, to the Gates Memorial in Bishop’s Road Gardens. There are a lot of places in our city that not only means a lot to our community but also means a lot to many individuals. We take a lot of these places for granted but there are so much to see and learn all around us.

It’s always refreshing as an artist, going back to your roots of drawing as a medium, but as well as being exciting to produce these pieces, it’s also been a challenge trying hard not to use paint or colour. The body of work was produced in pencils, charcoal and pastels but some of the pieces I felt lend itself to a dash of colour. This was achieved by using pastel and slightly coloured paper. Amazing what you learn also when observing these buildings and sites.

Those of you who know Tony’s work will know that he works in a variety of mediums and my work is always vibrant. While working on these pieces he was often tempted to paint some of the pieces but held back. It’s very strange and also a nice change not doing any painting for so many months.

Paul and Alison Saunders are frequent visitors to the Museum Caffe.

Tony says, this exhibition only consists of 10 pieces, whereas the original exhibition had 14 pieces. I would like to add this is not the end of this project. More work is being added to the collection and continues into the months ahead, with views of developing the project.

All works on display are for sale and you can also order prints from the Museum, greeting cards are also available.
