The art of war
AN exhibition of work from the 2013 War Artist of the Year is to be held at Salisbury’s Gallery 21.
Richard Salter will be unveiling his latest collection of original artwork, which reflects his emotional response to his time in the army, along with his first ever release of hand-signed Limited Edition giclées.
Salter, who serves with 15 Signal Regiment and is based in Devizes, has spent more than 17 years in the army.
He studied fine art at Buckinghamshire University and has painted throughout his military career whether on operations, training or at home.
He recently held his first major solo exhibition in York and has work in both private collections and museums.
And he exhibits annually in the Mall Galleries, London with the Armed Forces Art Society and in Salisbury with the Army Art Society.
A spokesman for the gallery said: “Gallery 21 are extremely excited to be working with Richard as he looks to forge a path as a career artist in the future when his army days finally come to end. We are looking forward to a very long and successful partnership.”
A percentage of the proceeds from the exhibition will be donated to forces charity Help for Heroes.
The exhibition will open tomorrow and runs until July 6.
