Black Cultural Archives presents
RUDI PATTERSON’S PAINTINGS AND CERAMICS AT HOME
Thursday 17 November, 6.30pm-8.30pm
Join us to celebrate and see hundreds of works by the visionary Jamaican artist Rudi Patterson 1933 – 2013. In life this self-taught intuitive artist had 40 exhibitions on 4 continents. In the Sixties and Seventies before becoming a full-time painter and potter, he was a ground-breaking model and actor on TV, stage, and movies. At his death hundreds of works were discovered in his Notting Hill flat, which have enabled acclaimed exhibitions at Leighton House Museum and Orleans House Gallery.
Rudi was an early supporter of Black Cultural Archives (which holds his archive). We are now proud to present paintings, framed and unframed, ceramics, pots, including many never exhibited before.
This is a rare chance to buy and take away a piece of art history.
Please join us for the launch of Rudi Patterson at Home. Meet and hear from Rudi’s friends and enjoy light refreshments.
