An artist is celebrating 10 years in Ely by offering the public a rare look at her favourite pieces.
Angela Mellor, of the Angela Mellor Studio & Gallery on St Mary’s Street, is opening the gallery on December 3, 4, 10 and 11 to celebrate a decade in the city.
Ceramic-loving artist Angela began her career in the 1970s, before going on to study at the University of East Anglia.
She then moved to Australia, before returning to the UK and taking over the gallery in Cambridgeshire from Ronald Pile, previous owner of Primavera in Cambridge.
The gallery is only open to the public twice every year, and Angela will be showcasing the work of international, national and local artists, as well as her own work, including the ‘Sculptural Light’ series.

Alongside the sculptural pieces, a new range of objects ‘Symphony in Black and White’ will feature, as well as the work of invited guest artist Vilokini Gail Abbott and her new monochrome prints, which explore the transitions and thresholds between states and liminal places.
Also returning is popular local painter Melanie Max with her atmospheric landscapes in oils.
