Bernard Ollis: A Tale of Two Cities

Warning

The date for this event has passed. Please check What's on for current events.

For Bernard Ollis life is a stage where we interact with others, often with unpredictable outcomes. His colourful paintings unite the cities of Bath and Paris in unexpected and delightful ways. Ollis spent his formative years in Bath before studying for his degree in Cardiff in the ‘70s and his Masters at the Royal College of Art, under such luminaries as Hockney, Blake and Hodgkin.

After emigrating to Australia, Ollis became Director of the National Art School, Sydney. Since stepping down in 2008 he has travelled far and wide, conducting residencies in many places including Cairo, Shanghai and Antarctica. For him and for us, this selling show is a very welcome homecoming.
