A retrospective exhibition of the paintings and drawings of Margaret Gregory RWA

About

Margaret Gregory was a poet and painter, and an active member of the RWA. A year after her death in 2011, her son, musician Will Gregory, is presenting a retrospective exhibition of her paintings and drawings.

A combination of key works charting the last 30 years hang alongside previously unshown pieces from Margaret's own collection as well as remarkable pictures unearthed from her studio. The exhibition recreates a flavour of Margaret's much-loved studio including the easel and palettes she used as well as the photographs and cuttings from which she took inspiration.

Featuring her diaries, sketchbooks and the poetry she wrote, Will has curated a very personal show, providing a rare insight into the life of this powerful, poetic and visionary artist.
