Richard Bawden at 80 April 04 2016

An exhibition celebrating the work of Richard Bawden has just opened at The Fry Gallery in Saffron Walden.

Perhaps best know for his paintings and prints, Richard is also a designer, whose work includes book illustration, posters, murals, mosaics, textiles, engraved glass, furniture and cast iron seats (for which he cut the patterns himself).

Richard's paintings are drawn from life, and as a printmaker he works predominantly in etching and lino. He studied at the Royal College of Art, has had over sixty one-man exhibitions at home and abroad, and has work in Royal, public and private collections.

Richard Bawden at 80 runs until 12th June 2016 at The Fry Art Gallery in Saffron Walden. Visit their website for details of opening times.
