The Tree at the End of Mondrian Street by Teresa Lawler

Local ARTIST’s Success in major National art exhibition

Work by local artists Roger Aslin and Teresa Lawler (who have both exhibited with Guildford Arts in the past) has been selected from a record number of entries to appear alongside paintings by some of Britain’s leading watercolour painters. This year over 1,200 works were submitted to the exhibition. The Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours 207th Exhibition will be on display in central London, at Mall Galleries between 3 and 18 April 2019.

Watercolour is an ancient medium which has been used from the Palaeolithic era to create many of Europe’s cave paintings, and in the Middle Ages for the illustration of manuscripts. However the popularity of watercolour painting today can be attributed to a transformation in its use, beginning with the Renaissance, and in which the United Kingdom has played a central role.

The Boathouse by Roger Aslin

There have been many changes in the fine art of watercolour in the 187 years since the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours (RI) began. Advancements in materials and techniques employed by today’s artists has led to interesting, colourful and dramatic paintings. The RI’s 207th Exhibition at Mall Galleries is a survey of how contemporary artists are using this age-old medium, and a great place to pick up vibrant, original works with prices starting from £350.

The exhibition showcases a diversity of styles and techniques, from traditional uses of watercolours to more experimental and innovative paintings. Works on display are produced by members of the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours (RI) and other artists whose pictures have been selected to hang alongside these by the RI Council, including many young painters using water-soluble media in new and exciting ways.
