Geoffrey Preston is one of the UK’s leading architectural sculptors, specialising in sculpture and decorative plasterwork and in particular the art of stucco.
He has been at the helm of many award-winning projects and this exhibition A Symphony of Curves: Geoffrey Preston – a tradition in plaster highlighted his work and placed it in its historical context.
The exhibition included a range of Geoffrey Preston’s work, from small, beautifully modelled relief panels, to a wildly exuberant new Rococo ceiling. Design drawings and photographs of some of his principal commissions were also on display, and displays of tools and materials offered visitors insight into how these objects were made.
