Catherine Barnes and Daphne Casdagli

2 – 14 July

Joint exhibition of paintings, drawings and prints by Catherine Barnes and Daphne Casdagli, with a programme of music recitals throughout the fortnight.

“Music has always been part of my life as much as art. I had piano lessons and sang in choirs. However, it became clear to me that art and the history of art required full time commitment.

To be able to combine music recitals with an exhibition shared with a friend in a venue beautiful in itself and with marvellous acoustics is a joy, a unique joy. My thanks to the Oxmarket staff and team for enabling this combination to happen.

Daphne Casdagli and I have a large space, with the John Rank Gallery, the Wilson Studio and the lobby for our combined show. Paintings, drawings and prints will surround the 1910 Bechstein piano so audiences will be able to enjoy the concerts we are promoting, perhaps dwelling on the works exhibited, thus receiving a dual aesthetic experience.”
