Coventry artist and sculptor George Wagstaffe is holding a rare public exhibition later this month. The exhibition is being held at St. Mary Magdalen Church, Sir Thomas White’s Road, Chapelfields, Coventry, CV5 8DR (the one with the blue roof!).
The exhibition will be held between Saturday 21st – Sunday 29th September 2019, the first two days coinciding with Heritage Open Days. There is also a private viewing, which is by invitation only.
George Wagstaffe is well known in Coventry. He gave a fascinating talk to the Coventry Society last September. His most famous works are the sculptures Naiad, currently on display in 1 Friargate and Phoenix, now located at the bottom of Hertford Street. He also did some of the sculptures on the ill-fated replica Coventry Cross, today in storage somewhere. The new exhibition is profiling his paintings.
