Conquering Conquest House

The exhibition of  25 paintings , prints and sculptures by six of John’s artists friends at Conquest House, Canterbury  won the  approval  by the Gallery  owner  last week . She said it was a refreshing and vibrant  show , full of human  interest and  would have liked it to stay longer.

She  especially liked Tony Oldacre’s Portrait of John Oliver  as an Art student  wearing a bow tie , not the way many of his friends   ever saw him !  The photo from which this portrait was taken is shown below .
