The second of the Year of the Boat exhibitions is to be held at Number NINE The Gallery in the heart of Brindley Place, Birmingham.

We are delighted that such an exciting venue has stepped forward in Birmingham to host the show after enjoying so much time painting in the second city during the summer of 2012.

Inspired by the beauty of the UK’s vast network of inland waterways, highly acclaimed artist Rob Pointon embarked on a year long painting project touring the canal network on a narrowboat.

All of Rob’s work is done on location which brings an energy and vibrancy to the atmosphere of the paintings, truly reflecting the experience and the scene being depicted.

The result of this project is a collection of 80 paintings to be exhibited for sale at four major locations starting in April 2013. A percentage of the proceeds of these sales is being donated to The Canal & River Trust.
