Travelling Exhibitions


Richard has his own display equipment which he takes to a number of motor and aviation events

throughout the year.He often likes to work on a painting while at these events.

His exhibition stands are suitable for both indoor and outdoor

displays together with his 3m X 3m easy-up marquee.

The free standing aluminium and galvanised 'weldmesh' display stands

can be arranged in a variety of configurations to suit most requirements

and enable him to hang at least 12 medium size paintingsat each display.

In addition he is able to offer his comprehensive range of motor and aviation greetings cards,

a selection of original unframed work and his range of prints.

Richard is always keen to learn of new venues to attend with his work.

EVENTS AND EXHIBITIONS


Unfortunately I won't be displaying paintings at 'The Silverstone Classic' this year,

for me it's been somewhat of a struggle to get the event to 'wash it's face' financially for the

past few years , the costs of doing the event seem to increase substantially

each year and selling original art is not easy anywhere.

To do the event this year, I'd effectively be giving away two original paintings

- just to break even.

..........................

 

I am however taking a stand at The Kop Hill Climb near Princes Risborough,

Buckinghamshire

over the weekend 17th - 18th September.

..............................

 

I am currently looking for an opportunity to display my work

at The 2016 Goodwood Revival,

I would be interested in sharing a stand space to reduce the cost of exhibiting.
