Dennis Creffield - East Anglian Cathedrals

Snape Maltings 8th June - 15th July 2018

Sadly Dennis Creffield died on 26th June; he was 87.

In 1987, commissioned by the Arts Council to draw all 26 medieval cathedrals of England, Dennis Creffield embarked on an epic 10,000-mile journey around England: “No artist has ever before drawn all the English medieval cathedrals – not even Turner. I’ve dreamed of doing so since I was a student.” 

This year the Aldeburgh Festival celebrates Creffield’s achievement with a selection of his charcoal drawings in the Concert Hall Gallery. An extract from the Malachite film ‘The Invisible Recorder’ will be shown, in which Creffield re-visits Peterborough, Ely and Norwich cathedrals; DVDs of the film are available for sale in the Gallery Shop.
