Great River Race
Sat 9 Sep - Sat 9 Sep 2017Past event
Join the President of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters, Ian Cryer as you cruise down the Thames. Tickets include a welcome glass of wine (adult tickets only), canapes and a two-hour cruise.
The Royal Institute of Oil Painters was founded in 1882 and given Royal status by King Edward VII in 1909. Its records are held in the Victoria and Albert Museum and it is recognised nationally as the only society that promotes and exhibits work of the highest standard, exclusively in oils.
Its president, Ian Cryer, is a favoured artist and he often depicts scenes of the Thames/Views from the Thames.
Hear from the President himself on a series of cruises, featuring some of his beautiful collection in association with M1 Fine Art, depicting the very river on which you will enjoy a fabulous cruise, taking in the beautiful scenery from Westminster to Greenwich.
It promises to be a beautiful evening of art, fine wine and a talk from one of the most respected artists working in the UK today! A real chance to get under the skin of what it’s like to be a modern day, living artist.
