After growing up in Hull, and working across the east and north of England, Peter settled in Greece in 2004 where his creative output expanded to include a hand built and mosaiced house of exceptional originality. 

Peter HubyThis exhibition is a retrospective covering his work from 1968 to the present day. It includes his latest series of paintings inspired by the Spurn peninsula, a recurring theme in his work, alongside ceramic sculptures, prints, drawings and large scale photographs of the mosaiced house which he and his partner, Linda Cox, have been building since 2006. Peter intends to give an impression of the house through a scale cardboard model assembles in the exhibition space.

About the exhibition space

A large exhibition gallery adjacent to the Art Collection enables us to provide a programme of loan exhibitions. The University upgraded this to the highest Government Indemnity standards for 2017 when Hull became UK City of Culture and we saw over 55,000 visitors to the galleries. We were able to launch 2017 with a remarkable exhibition of drawings from the British Museum, including works by Leonardo and Michelangelo.  We have also shown exhibitions in partnership with the National Portrait Gallery, Government Art Collection, and the Science Museums Group, and we continue to mount an exciting programme of exhibitions.
