Home is where the art is

Ely Standard
9th April 2009

Hot on the heels of the reopening of The Maltings and the Babylon Gallery at Ely riverside, another new attraction has opened its doors.

Ted Coney's Family Portraits is a gallery, museum and open studio based at 49 Waterside in Ely, which is also Mr Coney's family home.

For a £3 admission fee, visitors will be taken on a half-hour tour of Mr Coney's 300-year-old family home to see some of his paintings and also the archive material that has inspired them.

All the paintings, which have taken Mr Coney 40 years to compile, are based around his family life and family relationships.

Mr Coney was previously head of art and design at Hills Road Sixth Form College but has always painted in his spare time.

INFO: Bookings for the tour are essential, with a maximum six people at a time. You can book and get details by visiting www.tedconeysfamilyportraits.co.uk.
