Edwin Straker Retrospective
23rd Mar 2014 - 4th May 2014
A retrospective exhibition about the life and work of artist, Edwin Straker. This exhibition is in support of Hospice at Home, Carlisle and North Lakeland. A special opening will take place on 23rd March 2pm - 4pm.
1921 - 2011 Among Edwin Straker's commissions was one to paint Lord Mountbatten’s famous warship HMS Kelly and the limited edition print was signed by all the surviving members of the crew. Many corporate and private collections hold his work, Rolls Royce, the National Westminster Bank, Blenheim Palace and Prince Philip among them. When asked if he was happy he replied ‘A very happy man, yes. Because I do what I like doing, very few can do that’ But added, ‘It’s an irritation and a worry in some ways. Because you never achieve what you’d like to achieve. It’s always disappointing. When I finish a painting I wish I could start again. It is never perfect. So a mixed happiness, but I want no other’. He died in November 2011 with his final painting of a stream unfinished.
