This summer, a new Charity Pop-Up Gallery with Garden in Surrey celebrates art whilst raising awareness and funds for nature conservation and improved mental health. RSA Fellows are invited to the private view.

From July to September 2019, the Feeling & Matter exhibition will support WWF-UK and Oakleaf and display the diverse creative output of the English painter, sculptor, picture restorer, writer, husband and father, John Rich.

Feeling & Matter is a retrospective celebration of the work of John Rich taking place at his home and studio. The garden, designed by his wife Elizabeth, complements the gallery and reflects the harmonious life-long relationship between the artist and his muse.


Works on show include those kindly on loan from the private collection of Lord & Lady Levy.
