We are pleased to announce a new visual arts programme at the New Theatre Royal Portsmouth, showcasing the work of local artists in our building. Leo Stevenson: Artist and Faker is the first on display in the Stalls and Circle Bar areas.
The centrepiece of the exhibition, Stevenson’s ‘Jubilee’ painting is a vast and moving depiction of the celebrations marking the Queen’s Golden Jubliee in 2002; it is a celebration of unity, London and a memorial to the Concorde. Other original works on display include two pieces of East Sussex landscapes, ‘Brighter Later’ and ‘September morning’ depict Fishbourne Creek and Bexhill-on-Sea – both well known locations to the Chichester based artist.
In addition to his original work, Leo is well known for his work on television creating ‘fakes’ or interventions in other artists styles. The ‘serious fakes’ on display at the New Theatre Royal include copies of work by van Gough and Monet.
All exhibited work is available to purchase and will be on display until Jan 2020. For more information please call our Box Office on 023 9264 9000
