Rheged Centre

A Place to Meet.

Rheged is a gallery, café, cinema, shopping venue, workplace and creative space on the edge of the Northern Lakes. A place where friends, family and colleagues can share a meal, watch a film, hold a meeting, see an exhibition, buy a gift or catch up over coffee. A flexible space for getting together or enjoying time alone with a book or notepad; a place where stories are told, ideas are sparked and the Cumbrian landscape is a constant source of inspiration.

Matisse and Contemporary Paper Artists

Rheged Centre

Rheged is delighted to curate its first Paper Art Exhibition. It includes Matisse: Drawing with Scissors, his late works 1950-1954, a Hayward Gallery Touring Exhibition, which features 35 lithographic prints of the famous cut-outs produced by Henri Matisse (1869-1954) in the last four years of his life. The wider Gallery features 200 artworks by 42 leading British Paper Artists including animation, origami, fashion, collage, 3-D sculpture and paper cuts, many of which are for sale.

The exhibition includes children's activities and a make and create area with a specially commissioned Lake District themed Paper installation by Amy Williams. There is also a programme of adult and family-friendly artist led workshops (bookable in advance).
