John Bryce: Honouring the exceptional artist – the final exhibition from John’s Own Collection
DUE TO POPULARITY, THIS FINAL EXHIBITION BY JOHN BRYCE HAS BEEN EXTENDED UNTIL 5TH JANUARY 2024.
Farnham lost one of its artist legends in 2022. Since then, John’s family has discovered more than fifty paintings and prints, representing Farnham and the local area. We are delighted to present these artworks from John’s own collection for his final exhibition at the New Ashgate Gallery. Exceptionally, they are available to purchase during the exhibition.
Born in London in 1934, John Bryce graduated in mechanical engineering at King’s College London. He worked as a research scientist at the Royal Aerospace Establishment, Farnborough, working on projects such as Concorde. He, maintained a keen interest in painting, wood engraving and became an exhibiting member of both the Farnham and Guildford Art Societies in the early 1970s. After he retired, John pursued an active artistic career as a painter and printmaker. John painted in watercolour, oils and mixed media, creating original print images through the challenging medium of wood engraving, often using his paintings as an inspiration for the engraved image.
