‘Rocks & Rivers’ is an exhibition of thirteen paintings on loan from the private collection of Asbjörn Lunde, New York. This collection presents extraordinary landscape paintings by Norwegian and Swiss artists such as Johan Christian Dahl, Alexandre Calame and Thomas Fearnley. The paintings depict beautiful natural scenes from Scandinavia, Italy, Britain, and the Alps.

‘The Dramatic Landscape’ is a five-week course for adult students interested in learning landscape painting. Drawing inspiration from the Scandinavian and Swiss landscape paintings of ‘Rocks & Rivers,’ artist David Forster will explore how to capture ‘the rugged drama of mountain, sea and rain.’
