The first of the 2012 series of individual exhibitions by Friends of the RWA opens in the Long Gallery with paintings by artist Friend Patricia Porter.

Born in London in 1938, Patricia studied at St. Martins School of Art and later took a Degree in Art and Social context at Dartington College.

Living in Bristol for the past four years Patricia has concentrated on painting, inspired by the work of Patrick Heron, David Bomberg, Ivon Hitchens and Mathew Smith to loosen her own work, to explore form in a painterly way and to see the abstract qualities in pictorial landscape.

All works are for sale at reasonable prices and by making a purchase from this exhibition you will be supporting both the artist and the RWA.
