Norman Ackroyd

A Shetland Notebook

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Watercolours from several journeys Ackroyd made to the Shetland islands in 2012, as well as etchings from the Shetland Islands and further afield.

This exhibition offers a rare opportunity to view and purchase a large selection of watercolours from Britain’s most celebrated landscape artist.

Born in 1938, Norman Ackroyd studied at Leeds College of Art and the Royal College of Art. He was elected Royal Academician in 1988 and awarded a CBE for services to engraving and printmaking in 2007.

Based on Bermondsey Street he has spent over four decades recording the landscape of some of the most remote corners of the British Isles.

Arriving by boat, he paints and sketches as he approaches the islands. These drawings are the basis for the etchings which he then completes in his studio in London.
