FRIENDS proudly announce the purchase of a new  ROBERT MERCER painting for the Art Gallery.

ROBERT is a well known local artist.

” Most of my work has evolved from walking, drawing, observing and dreaming about places. The painting comes from the combination of two elements -’the real’ through drawings or photographs and ‘the imaginative.’ The latter aspects of the work developed through the imagination and the distortions of memory are by far the most important, the rest being really only a starting point.”     Robert Mercer
