'For Those In Peril'

By Derek Hare

10th - 15th June

This exhibition of Derek Hare’s work has been some years in the making. It came about during an exhibition that Derek held in the City of London some time ago, where the City Of London Committee became involved.

 

Since then the idea of having a Derek Hare exhibition celebrating the RNLI through his artwork was born and it was very fitting that this has coincided with the 125th anniversary of the RNLI City of London Committee. 

 

Coming from a largely seafaring family in South Shields, home of the Wouldhave Self Righting Lifeboat, invented in 1789, means that Derek has always had a strong connection with the sea

He is passionate about the sea and it inspires much of his work in various locations around the world. His paintings depict how fickle the sea can be with works of tranquil seascapes of the Caribbean and Seychelles to the tempestuous waters of the North Sea, the latter being very apparent in the main piece of this exhibition which Derek has painted for this event, “For Those in Peril”.  Here he celebrates the bravery of the RNLI volunteers who venture out into treacherous seas to save the lives of others. 

 

The funds raised from this exhibition will be used to support Tower Lifeboat Station on the Thames which carries out vital work for the benefit of the citizens of, workers in and visitors to the Cities of London and Westminster and beyond.

Open Monday to Friday 10.30 - 6pm
