Making a Mark, exhibition of sculpture by Nicolas Moreton

New College is delighted to be hosting a major retrospective exhibition of sculpture by Nicolas Moreton.

The exhibition - Making a Mark - is Nicolas's first major retrospective. It will cover the key ideas and concepts from across his 35 year career, exploring some of the wonders of human existence through stone, right back to a work from Nicolas's degree show in 1985! 

Making a Mark seeks to promote the medium of stone carving and demonstrate that it is still a powerful and creative material in the contemporary context of art. 

The exhibition will run from Sunday 17th October 2021 - Friday 8th July 2022 and will be hosted in the New College Cloisters and Antechapel. 

There will be no additional charge for the exhibition - all visitors will be able to view this as part of their entrance fee.
