A new exhibition reflecting upon historical and contemporary Bohemia has opened in Lancaster.

“A bohemian is simply an artist who consciously or unconsciously secedes from conventionality in life and in art,” said the Westminster Review 1862.

The intention of “BOHEMIA” at Arteria, Gallery 23 in the city, is to capture a sense of freedom and liberation of expression within art.

Organisers say the “BOHEMIA” exhibition is a retreat from the “norm” and a sanctuary from the everyday.

The exhibition runs until October 7, 2017. A launch night was held and wine was presented to guests by Alberto Zambianchi.
