ROBERT KELSEY Thompson’s Gallery would like to invite you to view a definitive exhibition of renowned Scottish painter Robert Kelsey’s latest works.

Born in Glasgow 1949 Studied at Glasgow School of Art 1966 - 1970 awarded D.A. A career in art education followed, until 1995 when he elected to become a full time artist. Robert has served on the councils of both Paisley Art Institute and Glasgow Art Club. From February 2012 Robert will become President of Glasgow Art Club

Kelsey has developed a creative reputation from his faithful depictions of the coastal landscapes of Western Scotland and its adjacent islands. Well travelled, Kelsey also often paints such disparate locations as the Mediterranean, Suffolk and Cornwall. This show is no exception to Kelsey’s indomitable artistic scope as we see him journey from the twilight footpaths of London’s riverside to the achingly attractive skyscapes of Lake Garda and the irresistible waters of Venice. One cannot mention Kelsey’s artistic skill without observing his dedication to the form of light and colour, to which he brings an unparalleled accuracy. Thompson’s Gallery has had the pleasure of showing Robert Kelsey’s work consistently since 1994. This year sees Kelsey become the latest President of The Glasgow Art Club and it is testament to his artistic commitment and enthusiasm that he continues to serve both his studio and academic disciplines.

Awarded the Diploma of Artist Membership of The Paisley Art Institute in 1998. (P.A.I.) Robert became a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts in 2009 (FRSA) He received an Honorary Master’s Degree from the University of the West of Scotland in 2010 ( MUniv.)
