The exhibition Dennis Roxby Bott RWS: A Showcase features seven stunning watercolours of one of the world’s great cities, Venice. It portrays the fantastic architecture and the well-known canals, but also the humble boat yard - humble yet noble - for the yard portrays the essence of the city. Just as the double decker bus is seen as ‘London’, so the boat yard harks back to the heart of Venice. Yet it takes an artist’s eye to see that and successfully portray it in watercolours. Dennis, whose work has been collected by admirers across the world, lives in Rudgwick, where he settled around 30 years ago. He usually exhibits in London on the South Bank. However, for two months Horsham District Council’s Horsham Museum and Art Gallery will be showcasing his stunning work, with scenes close to home including views of Brighton, London and Oxford, where his grasp of perspective and love of architecture enables him to master buildings in landscapes.
