Anthea Williams - Painter
2020 OPEN HOUSE: June 27/28 July 4/5
After studying Fine Art Sculpture at Wimbledon College of Art (University of the Arts) I went on to complete a Master of Arts in Sculpture at the Royal College of Art, where I was awarded the Henry Moore Scholarship.
Whilst still at the Royal College of Art, I started exhibiting my work and was invited by Keir Smith to exhibit with The London Group at Morley Gallery, London. In the same year, I was selected for the Whitworth Young Contempories exhibition, Manchester.
During my MA, I had begun to develop an interest in teaching and combined my studies with working in education at Camden Arts Centre. After graduating from the RCA, I worked for four years as the Administrator of Chisenhale Gallery. During this time, I continued to teach as a visiting artist on BA Fine Art courses.
Having always valued the practice of depicting form through drawing, I began to explore painting in acrylic and oils. I now concentrate entirely on painting and drawing, working exclusively from observation, and regularly exhibit portraiture, still life and landscape.
