Exhibition Unveiling " Poetry And Place"

Saturday June 1st 2014

Robert plans to exhibit 25 new paintings for this event. Robert creates textures by overlaying alkyd oil paint with a palette knife, but often resorting to rags and even fingers to obtain this multi-coloured effect. The result is a delightful fragmentation of the surfaces that is so attractive.

6 - 8pm

Robert Harrison Exhibition will be on display all month.
