Former Richmond artist’s work to go on display

Release Date: 20 September 2017

The Riverside Gallery at the Old Town Hall, Richmond will play host to an exhibition of work by mid-twentieth century artist Charles Mozley over the next few months.

Mozley, who lived in Richmond for twenty years, was part of the English Romantic movement. During the Second World War, he worked in camouflage along with other artists, such as Edward Seago.

The exhibition will include previously unseen oil paintings, lithographs and illustrations, in the exhibition as well as watercolour and sketches of Italy, France and Germany, together.

The exhibition will run from 30 September until 18 November 2017.

Cllr David Linnette, Cabinet Member for Culture, Sport and the Voluntary Sector said:

“This is a great opportunity for art lovers to see work from an artist with close ties to the borough. The exhibition will bring together some examples of Mozley’s work across the different periods of his life.

“It will also include a collection of Mozley’s superb book jacket designs which makes the exhibition particular relevant during our Literature Festival in November

“The Council is committed to supporting the arts in Richmond and bringing great exhibitions like this to our galleries for residents to enjoy.”
