Summer Exhibition 2019

15th August 2019 -

At The Upper House, Barlaston, Staffordshire, ST12 9AE on THURSDAY 15th AUGUST from 13.00 – 20.00

We would like to invite you to our Summer Exhibition of 2019.

Working alongside other professional artists has been key trend this year, Rob has been elected an Associate member of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters, a member of The British Plein Air Painters, and the group of nine outdoor painters The Northern Boys staged their inaugural exhibition in Manchester which proved a huge success. Works from trips with these groups to Venice, Seville and London will be displayed alongside work from personal trips to Beijing, Orkney and the Scottish Highlands as well as more local subject matter from Manchester and the Potteries.

It is my hope this large independent showcase will give an unrivalled insight into my recent explorations with paint. I really enjoy exhibiting at The Upperhouse in Barlaston; the spacious rooms of this former Wedgwood family home give the freedom to show a large selection of work.

This beautiful venue, with its stunning interior and magnificent landscaped grounds, is already home to some of Rob’s work: a triptych of painted murals which are on permanent display in the Dining Room.

Enjoy a wonderful afternoon of art in a country house setting.

For those of you who might wish to have lunch, afternoon tea or dinner, you can book directly with the venue on 01782 373790.

We really hope you can join us for this very special Summer event and it would help us prepare if you could RSVP your attendance to
