Cross-Connections: Paintings by Ruth Rix with prints by Helga Michie

  • 1 Feb 2023 — 28 Mar 2023

A selection of Ruth Rix’s more recent work from sixty years of painting, shown alongside prints by her mother Helga Michie, a Kindertransport refugee from Vienna. Whilst the artists’ career trajectories were very different, the works shown here together illustrate powerful resonances which throw light on each artist’s work.
