Here are a few photos to give you an idea of the look of the show.

Private View, Friday 28th February, a short tribute to Sir Patrick NairneRadley PV 2014013Above: Andrew Nairne, right, opens the show with Peter Farley Society Chair, left.

Andrew Nairne, Director of Kettles Yard, Cambridge opened the exhibition. He talked about his childhood, going on picnics with the family walking in the countryside until his father Patrick had found just the right place to paint. He also talked about times at Radley and about the excellent show and that viewers should remember how brave it is of artists to exhibit their work. A display of Patrick’s work can be seen at the show, see photo below Private View.
