The RGA was saddened to hear that long-standing member Robert Gillmor died peacefully at home on Sunday 8th May 2022 with the family present by his side.

Our thoughts are with Robert's family, including his daughter Emily, fellow member of the RGA.


Following our recent AGM the RGA is happy to announce Fiona Talkington as our new President. Along with our new Chair Linda Saul, we look forward to the coming months.

Thanks go to retiring President Clive Duncan for his inspiration and support over the last six years. Clive has been made an Honorary Life Member of the RGA, and he will continue being an important part of our community. Thanks also go to retiring Chair Paul Woolley for all his hard work over these difficult few years.

I have been intrigued by Paul's urban landscapes, and this one is no exception. Wonderfully executed in a limited palette, conveying a bright sunny day. What is happening here my mind asks, has there been a mishap which caused the abandoned scooter. More likely there has been a distraction of something more exciting, perhaps an ice cream!

More than just a painting, this is an ever changing story which engages the viewer imagination.
