The first artist to host an exhibition at the Riverside Gallery, Richmond will return with a one-man show.

Nick Bridson Baker, who was born in Strawberry Hill, Twickenham, hosted the first exhibition in 1997. He returns on August 4, with 80 one-off prints, paintings and drawings.

Both of his parents are artists and some of their work will be on the show. Nick’s dad, Leslie Baker, drew cartoons for Punch in the 1930s.

Nick works in his studio-shed at his Twickenham home and since 2008 he has been working at untutored Print Workshop at Richmond and Hillcroft Adult Community College (RHACC).

Nick said: “I draw from memory, imagination and life. For this exhibition, I have chosen a mixed selection of work that I hope is amusing, puzzling, surprising or simply fun.”

Cllr John Coombs, Cabinet Member for Arts, Culture and Sport said: “It’s great to have a local artist returning to a Gallery with which he shares so much history. Nick’s quirky, fun work is sure to be a hit with the Gallery’s visitors this autumn so why not come on down to Richmond and check it out.”
