Exhibition: Brian Rice – Prints from the Artist’s Archive

Location: Belgrave St. Ives, St. Ives, Cornwall

Date: 6th – 27th March 2017

Details: A rare chance to sample a selection of work from Brian Rice’s own personal collection. During his long career, Rice set aside examples of each phase of his work. In the case of prints, he has always kept the number one print from each edition. Having published separate catalogue raisonnés of his prints and paintings, he no longer feels the need to retain so many of his earlier pieces. Belgrave St Ives has made a selection from this extensive archive and will be exhibiting both paintings and prints to coincide with the launch of the book Brian Rice Paintings 1952- 2016.
