Art enthusiasts are being invited to an intimate and insightful address from a fine art expert whose father was a leading light in the field.
Low Wood Bay Resort & Spa on the shores of Windermere is holding a ‘walk and talk’ event fronted by Ben Adams, the son of renowned British artist Norman Adams RA.
Following the hotel’s launch of its inaugural art exhibition earlier this year, the exclusive ‘walk and talk’ tour of the artist’s oil paintings and watercolours, delivered by his son Ben and discussing each of the pictures on display, takes place at 2pm on Saturday 25 November.
English Lakes Hotels executive chairman Simon Berry says:
“This event is a chance for art collectors, experts and enthusiasts to find out more about the work of this celebrated British painter, mural artist, teacher, and stage and costume designer."
“Ben’s presentation will help illuminate the story behind each painting and share some of his father’s thoughts throughout his career. It’s an invaluable opportunity for local art enthusiasts to get a highly knowledgeable, first-hand critique of this highly regarded painter.”
Norman Adams (1927-2005) was born in London and studied at Harrow School of Art, where he won a scholarship to the Royal College of Art, later becoming professor at the Royal Academy Schools.
The event is being delivered in partnership with Lancaster based Gavagan Art, whose owner Mary Gavagan says:
“We are thrilled that Ben is giving us his time to provide a greater depth of insight into his father’s work."
“The Atrium at Low Wood Bay is proving to be a popular space to host art exhibitions such as this. A range of paintings in both oil and watercolour are on display showing how this artist was inspired to record his feeling for the landscape around him.”
Low Wood Bay is aiming to establish a regular display of fine art in the spacious Atrium at the resort, a place where people can come to see a high quality art exhibition in the Lake District in an accessible, free and informal way.
