Bernard Dunstan | Contemporary Show - 23 November to 21 December 2017
At the time of his death, aged 97, Dunstan was the Royal Academy's longest serving member, having been elected Associate in 1959 and full member in 1968. An admirer of Bonnard, Vuillard and Sickert, he was well-known for his intimate domestic interiors of nudes, his views of Venice and his paintings of orchestras, which he exhibited at the Royal Academy and the New English Art Club for over 60 years.
His continued passion and energy for painting over the years was in no doubt attributable to his lifelong partnership with fellow artist, Diana Armfield, whom he first met at the Slade School of Fine Art in the early 1940s, later marrying in 1949. Together they worked alongside one another for more than 60 years from their homes in Kew and North Wales and on their many trips to France and Italy.
Whereas Diana concentrated on landscapes and still life, the figure was paramount for Dunstan, and in particular nudes: "Figure painting still seems to me to present quite unlimited scope. If some mad minister of art decreed that I could only paint one subject for the rest of my life I would be perfectly happy doing nothing but nudes....I am quite happy with Ruskin's dictum 'Paint what you love and love what you paint.'
This exhibition is devoted to Dunstan's smaller works from the early 1960s to 1990s.

Judith Bridgland Exhibition 2017 - 9 February to 3 March 2017
We are delighted to be holding this, our 11th, exhibition of Judith Bridgland's work, comprising of 40 paintings from Judith's travels over the past year.
"Nature and its elemental forces are everywhere. Even in the most urban of landscapes, nature is present, bringing colour and vitality, seasonal change, and the rhythm of the tides.
In exploring this theme I have looked at water in all its moods. Rivers and canals fill cities and villages with a pulse of powerful, organic life. From the banks of the Thames where the river is wide and slow, to the rushing torrents of the spectacular Falls of Dochart, to the quiet reflections of the acqua alta in Venice. Meanwhile, the ever-changing seas of Cornwall or Scotland have a life and character of their own, and hold a never-ending fascination.
A good exhibition should take you on a journey, tell you a story. This is therefore the story of another year of my travelling, observing, recording, note-taking, and remembering. It is a story about what it is to be a Scottish painter, and to be the force that brings all these elements together". Judith I Bridgland
