James Horton is an artist of national and international repute who works mainly in oil and watercolour but also in pastel. He emphasizes that his work, whether portrait or landscape, is predominantly from life. He is a past member of CDS and is very well known to many members who have benefitted from his classes. Only a few years after leaving the Royal College of Art, James was elected to the Royal Society of British Artists and in 2009 he was elected as the Society’s President. During his time as President he has some overseen some controversial changes, including the introduction of on-line submission of digital images for non-members hoping to have their work selected for the open exhibitions. The evening will undoubtedly provide a fascinating insight into role of President of a prestigious London art society. There will be a charge of £5 per person paybale on the evening.
