Here and There

“Bright colour, a sense of place, and an enjoyment of paint are all hallmarks of Peter Quinn’s work. The scenes he depicts have a life, a vitality about them. They demonstrate a confident draughtsmanship and an eye for details that capture the spirit of a place so completely.”

SPRING EXHIBITION

MADE IN COLOUR

24 March – 23 April 2016

Bankside Gallery

The Royal Watercolour Society’s Spring Exhibition, Made in Colour celebrates the huge variety of hues, shades and tones available to artists working in water-based media. Whether, transparent, opaque or somewhere in between, watercolour has the ability to be both light and soft or vibrant and bold.   This exhibition will explore the many ways in which the Members of the RWS use colour in their practice.

AUTUMN EXHIBITION: WATERCOLOUR JOURNEYS

The RWS Autumn Exhibition: Watercolour Journeys, explores one of the medium’s most fundamental qualities; its portability.  Our artists have taken their palettes to the mountains of Nepal, tributaries of East Anglia, the Army bases of Afghanistan, the rocky cliffs of Pembrokeshire and the wilds of Texas, amongst many others.
