Reflections on Cuba Street
 works by Nancy Millichamp and Elizabeth Harcourt

Reflecting on Cuba Street, past and present, these works are inspired by the tiles that can still be found adorning buildings in Upper Cuba Street. The exhibition speaks of both of the elegance of the older buildings and the funky, quirky nature of 21st century Cuba Street.

Reflections on Cuba Street runs from the 5th to 31st of August.

A Princely Gift!
