Join us for a rare opportunity to see this exciting new exhibition without the crowds before the National Gallery is open to the public.The first ever exhibition devoted to the portraits of Paul Gauguin. Spanning the later years of his life and focusing solely on his portraits, this exhibition follows Gauguin’s move away from Impressionism towards Symbolism.
Ken Howard OBE RA NEAC Hon RBA FROI invites you to visit his London studio where he will talk about his fascinating life, technique and influences. You will be able to explore and look at the many paintings on view in his studio, followed by an opportunity to chat to Ken and ask questions. You will also be able to meet some of the participants of the Mall Galleries ‘In the Studio” project run by Elli Koumousi, Head of Education and Cultural Strategy. This project brings together young artists from diverse backgrounds; some formally trained, others self-taught; some already working in the arts, and others pursuing very different career paths.
Patrons and up to four guests are invited to join us for our wonderfully festive annual party which this year takes place during the Royal Institute of Oil Painters Annual Exhibition. There will be food, music, entertainment, activities and art!
