We concluded Arts Week with the exhibition and prize giving for out annual General Arts Prize. Despite the high number and calibre of entries this year our invited judge Paul Hobson, director of Modern Art Oxford, was able to whittle down the list to give us this years winners: 1st - Timothy Keasley (Top image) 2nd - Eleanor Mills (Middle image) 3rd - Helena Sutcliffe (Bottom image) #artsweek #prize

Griselda Pollock comes to Pembroke

The first event of this year's arts week was a fascinating talk by world renowned art historian and cultural analyst Griselda Pollock, which was held in conjunction with our friends the Edgar Wind Society. Pollock's talk, which was entitled 'Raphael after the Holocaust: Art, Spirituality and the After-affects of Catastrophe', was followed by a particpatory exhibition in our gallery that show cased the works we have by female artists and invited visitors to creat their own narratives around the works. #artsweek #edgarwindsociety #guestspeaker

Pembroke at the Ashmolean

The biggest event of our Arts Week so far has been our trip to the Ashmolean. Students, fellows, and former masters alike enjoyed an exclusive evening filled with art, live music, and fascinating talks thanks to a collaboration with the University Engagement Programme. Over one hundred Pembrokians flooded the historic halls of the museum to hear a range of speakers from DPhil students, to the artist in residence in Oxford University, and even our very own curator Sarah Hegenbart. Special thanks go to the University Engagement Programme (you can find out more about it below), Dr Mallica Kumbera Landrus, and Art Fund Chair Claudia Zwar for making the evening possible, and Pembroke's Annual Fun
