Peter Glover Preview – all invited

January 11 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Young Gallery would like to invite you to a preview evening celebrating our new exhibition – Peter Glover – the man – his art.

Peter’s paintings are built up from an array of abstract forms, accumulated over decades, which have for him, a special resonance. The process of assembly, erasing and remaking of these units/forms which take place on the surface of the canvas constitutes a kind of history or story, which would be impossible to convey verbally.

He studied painting at Camberwell School of Art 1954-57. On leaving he was offered a part time position teaching drawing there: 1957-1960.

In 1960 he moved to Portsmouth to teach drawing and painting at Portsmouth Polytechnic. He also taught, for short periods, at other art schools: Gloucester, Southampton, Falmouth and John Cass School-London.

In 1090 he took early retirement to concentrate on developing his own work – moving to Wilton and working in his specially new-built garden studio.
