McDonalds Corners Elphin Recreation & Arts (MERA) is proud to to display the art of Richard Hutton for our May Art Exhibition in Dean Hall. The vernissage will be held on Saturday May 5th from 1:00 to 4:00 pm. Everyone is welcome.
Richard is accomplished in acrylics, watercolour, drawing, and oils, but the latter remains a favourite. He prides himself in not being a slave to any particular style or technique.
Richard’s art is as multi-faceted as the man’s mind. In fact, the depth and breadth of the mind itself, and everything it conjures up in this world, is the constant underlying theme in all his works. The subject matter can be still and reﬂective, at other times turbulent or playful, but is always enquiring and often provocative.
Born in Glasgow, Richard acquired a ﬁrst class BAHons in Fine Art as a mature student. He married late in life and his Canadian wife brought him to Perth, where they now reside. Richard is keen to immerse himself in the landscape and culture of Eastern Ontario and to see where that takes him artistically.
