PICTURE THIS - an evocative portrayal of a once infamous neighbourhood through the eyes of the people who live and work there.

This unique exhibition is a selection of the artwork produced for a special competition, to design a postcard depicting King's Cross / St Pancras past, present, or future; an intimate view of an area that will change beyond recognition over the next 10 years.

Presented by Cross Section magazine as part of Arrivals, a major event celebrating the opening of St Pancras International and the arrival of Eurostar, the exhibition shows unusual and often thought provoking views: a glimpse of places gone forever, imaginary backdrops and a neighbourhood in flux.

Competition judges were the respected artist Richard Wentworth, the director of the Camden Arts Centre Jenni Lomax and Cross Section editor Catherine Packard.

Eight images have been produced as a limited edition set of novel postcards which visitors will be able to buy. Railway Lands a book of photographs by local author Angela Inglis will also be available.
