New exhibition at Gallerytop

GALLERYTOP at Rowsley has featured the work of a number of new artists during the summer and the latest to be exhibiting is Mike Bernard.

Mike Bernard trained at the West Surrey College of Art and Design, Farnham, before attending postgraduate studies at the Royal Academy Schools.

Since then, he has exhibited widely across the UK, particularly in London, where he shows at the Mall galleries.

Mike was elected a member of the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour in 1997 and moved to Devon in 2008 where he has been inspired by what he terms the amazing light.

Mike Bernard enjoys experimenting with media and techniques, often using mixed media incorporating collage and acrylics.

There is also a range of other work in the gallery such as paintings by John Brenton, prints by Artizan Editions and new jewellery arriving regularly.
