2008 is the 50th anniversary of the death of the artist
Walter Dexter (1876 ' 1958), who lived and worked in
King's Lynn, latterly in Nelson Street and was tragically
knocked over and killed by a motorbike in Saturday
Market Place. Dexter was the first President of the King's
Lynn Art Club in 1945 and taught Art at King Edward
VII High School. He was a remarkable painter of both
landscape and portrait and was renowned for his fine
views of King's Lynn across the river from West Lynn. This
commemorative exhibition has been enhanced by the
generosity of Private Collectors and many of the pictures
have never been seen by the public before. This offers a
unique opportunity to view the breadth of work produced
by this prolific local artist and includes drawings, paintings,
illustrations, books and posters.
