Visual Arts and Music12 (4th - 15th July)

There’s some excellent visual art on show, during Music12, including work by COS members Peter Granville Edmunds and Rob Goldsmith.

Peter's emotionally charged abstract paintings in this exhibition have been especially made for Music12 and are spontaneous, in-the-moment responses to a selection of the work being performed this year.
