Reflections on Cuba Street
works by Nancy Millichamp and Elizabeth Harcourt
Reflecting on Cuba Street, past and present, these works are inspired by the tiles that can still be found adorning buildings in Upper Cuba Street. The exhibition speaks of both of the elegance of the older buildings and the funky, quirky nature of 21st century Cuba Street.
Reflections on Cuba Street runs from the 5th to 31st of August.

Minerva had five exquisite shawls made by Cynthia as part of our Winter Warmer exhibition.
