Artist in Residence
The Town of Cambridge is proud to support local artists by showcasing their works in an exclusive exhibition at The Boulevard Centre.
The exhibition is open for viewing from 9am to 4pm, Monday to Friday in The Boulevard Centre Gallery. Please drop in and enjoy works by some very talented artists.
Our current exhibition
John’s exhibition is titled ‘Timeless Beauty’. These beautiful artworks will be on display at The Boulevard Centre from 2 August 2021 until the end of September 2021.
About the Artist
The artwork at the centre of the exhibition and of the same name 'Timeless Beauty’ is not bound by time or place, rather it recognises the profound, enduring and evolving relationship between art and marine science.
John created layers at each site, using different colours, textures and materials to evoke the scene. He then tucked, discarded, folded, darted and moulded these materials, which at first look like nothing, but are given a literal twist with 3D imagery at the end to create something exceptional.
John is a self-taught artist whose art is highly detailed and exquisitely embellished. His intimate understanding of the ocean as a deep sea diver has given him the skill in spending weeks closely engaged in each process of his artworks. This also relates to the images and illusion he conveys through the recycled materials he uses.
“Let us explore together and be thrilled by this exhibition. Be enriched by the many mystical tales of each painting. My ethos and spirit are authentic and you can’t help but get swept up in this Timeless Beauty Exhibition.” John Major (Artist)
Prizes to Win! John will be providing two pieces of his art valued at $3,200 each, as prizes over the course of his exhibition. These will be drawn at the end of each month (August and September 2021) and all you need to do to enter is simply come down to the Boulevard Centre to view John’s amazing art and complete an entry form to go into the draw.
