THE Ashmolean Museum Broadway is to hold a special exhibition featuring local artist Jeremy Houghton’s paintings of the last decade.

The Jeremy Houghton Broadway Artist Exhibition: 10 Year Retrospective will be open to the public from Friday, August 1.

The display will showcase Mr Houghton's diverse range of styles and techniques.

The works will be displayed in the exhibition space on the top floor of the 16th century building.

Mr Houghton, who is the third generation of his family to live in Broadway, has had a diverse career with commissions for HRH Prince of Wales at Highgrove and HRH Queen Elizabeth as well as being one of the official artists of London 2012.

His images reflect upon the different themes of sport, nature and travels including the people he met along the way.

Curator of the exhibition filmmaker and performance director Jim Brook, said: "Jeremy’s paintings work through retelling images from photographs, evoking a sense of change and constancy. Central to their meanings is the air that surrounds the paintings which are full of memories and stories."

The exhibition will on display at the Ashmolean Museum Broadway on the High Street until the end of January 2015.

The museum and shop are open Tuesday to Sunday from 10am to 5pm.
