Art Exhibition by Chris Richbell
Saturday, August 1, 2015 @ 10:30 am - Wednesday, September 2, 2015 @ 4:30 pm
We are delighted to be hosting a range of new work in watercolour and acrylic by Olney resident, Chris Richbell.
Chris is a member and regular exhibitor with the Northampton Town and Country Art Society and serves on their Council. She paints mainly in watercolour or acrylic, and sometimes with mixed media or pastels.
She is part of a group of painters from all over the country that annually enjoy painting together in Walberswick on the Suffolk coast. Painting outside, whatever the weather, brings a whole new meaning to watercolour! She also regularly goes to Cumbria, painting with a group in the Derwent Water area. And last year went on an amazing painting trip onboard a working boat to the Arctic Circle. She has recently illustrated a children’s book and also the front cover for a legal publication. In her spare time, she has been restoring highly intricate painted ceilings in Abruzzo, Italy.
Chris has won prizes locally and nationally with two awards from the Royal Watercolour Society in their 21st Century Open Exhibition that led to a very successful solo exhibition in London. She has exhibited in numerous galleries, including the New English Art Club at the Mall Gallery London, Bankside Gallery London, Alfred East Gallery Kettering, The Guildhall Gallery Northampton, Woburn Abbey, Lamport Hall, Delapre Abbey, and has had work accepted by the Royal Academy.
She currently has over 30 paintings displayed in a Conference Centre in Fleet Street and private and corporate bodies including the Savoy Group have purchased her paintings.
Her current passion is the interplay of light and reflections, which has encouraged her to produce a very successful series of ‘Wet London’ paintings. She has also enjoyed painting the atmosphere of pubs and restaurants, looking at strong light on tables and people in dark interiors, with a glass of wine in her other hand!
Chris hopes you enjoy visiting her exhibition!
