Staging seasonally changing exhibitions at Cambridge’s two branches of Espresso Library, curator Amy Stevens is on a mission to bring emerging and established artists to a new audience.

An interior designer who trained at Chelsea College of Art and has worked with both Burberry and Tom Dixon, Amy saw an opportunity to showcase artists’ talents within the cafe’s venues on East Road and at Grand Arcade - and Espresso Library Art was the result.

“Life has changed for all of us and Espresso Library Art gives all creative, inspired minds the opportunity to be in touch with each other again,” explains Amy, who is also uniting artists and audience via dedicated social channels, with in-person events in the pipeline.

Currently exhibiting are Peter Hawksby and Izabella Imiolczyk, who share a Norfolk Street studio and a fascination with colour. “These artworks were produced during the autumn/winter lockdowns,” adds Amy. “When we were going through a pandemic they were producing works filled with colour, something we feel should be celebrated.”
