Will Rochfort: Every Picture Tells a Story
1 December - 29 December 2012
December welcomes local artist, and Coastal Gallery favourite, Will Rochfort to Coastal Gallery to stage a solo exhibition throughout the Gallery. On show will be new work, as well as a selection of old favourites. Will is based in Cadnam, Hampshire, and his work is influenced by a series of inspirations, including Steven Spielberg, comic books, American illustrator and Norman Rockwell, as well as a cast of Lymington's own faces and celebrities.
To mark the exhibition, Will shall be recreating his studio at Coastal Gallery, and will be available on specific days (keep an eye on our website News and Facebook for confirmed dates) to show visitors how he works and what drives him as an artist.
Throughout 2011 and 2012, Rochfort was one of the official artists for the London 2012 Olympic Games, working closely with a range of athletes, including BBC TV presenter and wheelchair basketball star Ade Adepitan, to produce a range of drawings and paintings in support of the Games and their associated charities. His work is now highly sough after, and Coastal Gallery is delighted to welcome to Will back.
