Artist’s centenary at gallery

ONE of Britain’s best-loved artists is to have the 100th anniversary of her birth marked by a special exhibition at the Bohun Gallery in Reading Road.

Mary Fedden died in 2012 aged 96, but during her lifetime as a painter she enjoyed a long association with the gallery, where she first exhibited work in 1984.

The show, which opens tomorrow (Saturday), is titled Mary Fedden: A Centenary Celebration of Major Works.

A spokesman for the gallery said the exhibition focuses on Fedden’s “very finest work” — including paintings, drawings, collages, and the first survey of her early lithographs.

He added: “Many of the paintings have not been seen since their first appearance at Royal Academy Summer shows, which presents an exciting opportunity for modern British collectors.”
