An artist and illustrator with Suffolk ties is exhibiting a behind the scenes glimpse of the county’s best-known concert venue.

Lucinda Rogers, whose work as a reportage artist, recording the unseen life of cities has been exhibited at the British Museum and Museum of London, was commissioned to produce the drawings by Snape Maltings.

They featured in brochures covering the Aldeurgh Festival, Snape Proms and the winter/spring 18/19 season – and are now on exhibition at the Concert Hall Gallery until December 23.

Working with Snape Maltings graphic consultancy, Silk Pearce, Rogers’ drawings include wide external aspects, interiors and close-ups of musicians.

Rogers, who has strong family ties to Suffolk, said: “Knowing Snape Maltings as a visitor and concert-goer I was thrilled to have the chance to look more closely at the buildings and life backstage, even drawing underneath the stage itself.”

The exhibition also includes drawings of Blythburgh Church, the Pumphouse and the Red House to continue the connection with composer Benjamin Britten.

Jack Pearce, who commissioned the drawings, said: “Lucinda’s immersion in an environment for long periods gives her work a strong sense of place.”

Rogers’ recent work includes a solo show at the House of Illustration, featuring a close portrait of Ridley Road market in London’s Dalston. She has also drawn scenes of New York and Marrakesh.

Her career in illustration has seen her working for press titles including the Telegraph, Independent, Times and Guardian as well as Bloomberg and the Globe Theatre.
