Spring exhibition covers Venice to the Regatta
Published 19/05/14



A LARGE 'atmospheric' painting of the Grand Canal in Venice features in the new spring exhibition at the Barry Keene Gallery on Thames Side in Henley.

The oil-on-canvas painting, entitled Evening Light Venice, is a metre wide and captures the brilliant light for which the city is famous and which attracts so many artists.

The artist, Peter van Breder, was born in Zimbabwe and has exhibited worldwide, but is equally well-known for his pictures of Henley Royal Regatta as for his work depciting other beautiful cities. Other works of his on show will include landscapes of London, Henley and Falmouth.

The exhibition, which opens this Sunday, features work by 10 different acclaimed professional artists

Simon Quadrat, a past president of the Royal West of England Academy, is exhibiting two works — a still life and a surrealist painting,


There are three impressionist still life paintings, set before and reflected in mirrors, by John Martin, abstracts by Helen Hale, landscapes by David Fowles, seascapes and landscapes by Jonathan Smith, beach and river scenes by Barry Keene and a selection of bronze sculptures by John Huggins, as well as a collection of paintings from the 19th and 20th centuries.

• The exhibition opens on Sunday at 11am and continues Tuesday to Saturday 9.30am to 5.30pm until Saturday, May 31. For more information call (01491) 577119 or visit www.barrykeenegallery.co.uk
