Yorkshire Post - Culture & The Guide - - ART -

PORTRAITS cap­tur­ing some of Shakespeare’s best known char­ac­ters are to be shown for the first time out­side Strat­ford.

Thir­teen by Ge­orge Chakravarthi takes its in­spi­ra­tion from char­ac­ters like Lady Mac­beth, Othello and Ophe­lia who all met their ends through sui­cide and the project was launched to mark the 450th an­niver­sary of the play­wright’s birth.

The col­lec­tion will be ex­hib­ited at the Im­pres­sions Gallery in Brad­ford from From March 20 to June 14. For more de­tails call 01274 737843 or online at www. im­pres­sions-gallery.com
