For more than 40 years, the Loft Theatre has hosted artists who wish to exhibit their work in the lounge areas of the theatre.

All are welcome to view the exhibitions, free of charge, when the theatre is open to the public during the run of a Loft production.

Until the end of December, our exhibition space features the work of Rugby-based artist Cynthia Chandler.

Cynthia Chandler studied at Twickenham School of Art where she received a thorough training, especially in the skill of drawing. She started her professional career in a leading London commercial studio as a fashion artist, where her work was used by such names as Harrods, Jaeger, Fenwicks of Bond Street and Selfridges, and frequently appeared in national daily newspapers and magazines.

Cynthia moved to Rugby, where she paints at a more relaxed pace: portraits, landscapes, figure studies, animals, coastal scenes etc, in oils, watercolours and pastels. She was President of Rugby and District Art Society for 12 years, and has exhibited in many Midland exhibitions, and with the United Society of Artists and the Pastel Society at the Mall Galleries in London. Cynthia has work in the permanent collections of Rugby Borough Council and Nuneaton Museum and Art Gallery. Her influences range from Rembrandt to Sargent, and from Toulouse-Lautrec to the Impressionists.
