M1 Fine Art in Greenwich, together with The Resident, is hosting a special, one-off event where you can meet Master of Oil Ian Cryer as he paints a live portrait in the gallery…
Sunday 5 March 2017 marks the final day of Master of Oil, the largest ever exhibition by President of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters, Ian Cryer, and M1 Fine Art’s biggest exhibition to date.
To celebrate the tremendous success of the exhibition, The Resident and M1 Fine Art are teaming up to host a special, one-off event where you can meet the artist, sip on prosecco as you take in the exhibition, and watch as Ian Cryer himself paints a live portrait of Gallery Director Peter McAllister.
Guests at the event will be able to witness first hand how Cryer develops a painting, demonstrating his mastery of the most revered of all mediums within the art world as the image of the subject comes to life before your very eyes.
An informal interview will take place throughout the painting process, with visitors being encouraged to pose their own questions to the Master of Oil.
Complimentary prosecco will be served throughout the event, where you are free to take in the full exhibition of over 100 paintings, many of which are of Greenwich itself. The extensive collection takes visitors on an exhilarating journey through his preferred subject areas of figurative, still-life, landscape, city-scape and floral and offers an unprecedented insight into the skill and talent of one of the world’s greats.
