Opens January 24th 2020
The museum in Exeter has several examples of Rice’s work in their permanent collection, and along with these this show will consist of a large selection of paintings and prints spanning Rice’s long career. The earliest work to be shown is from 1954, (made at Yeovil School of Art) followed by examples of his development into abstraction, including some major paintings from the 1960s. Further important works made up to the early 2000s will also be here, some of which are based on his interest in archaeology.
This exhibition has finally closed, and will be transferred with some changes to the Museum of Somerset, aiming to open in April 2021. More details in due course.
