Harpenden Gallery in festive mood for Rory
FOR the sixth year in succession, a Harpenden gallery is holding its annual Rory Browne-Fest during July.
The A&K Wilson Gallery in Station Approach is hosting the exhibition of Rory’s work and owner Andrew Wilson said there had been big changes over the years.
He explained: “I’ve known Rory for many years and have been dealing in his work for just as long so I take a keen personal and professional interest in the evolution of his work.
“Thankfully being a bit of an anorak, I have also kept his brochures going back over the last decade and so looking at this current exhibition I can take something of an overview. It’s really interesting to see how Rory’s work has progressed and changed both in style and media.”
The biggest change came a few years ago when when Rory branched out into painting in oils on canvas which allowed him to paint on a much bigger scale. The exhibition includes Living Water which, at 60ins x 48ins, is his largest painting to date.

Despite the changes in his work Rory, who is head of art at St George’s School in Harpenden, is consistent in his draughtmanship. He said: “I enjoy adding layers to a piece and building a richness through collage but the starting point of my work will always remain my drawing.”
