Reuben Colley Fine Art, an independent fine art gallery located at the heart of Birmingham’s business district, has been invited by Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery to mount a major exhibition featuring the work of five outstanding living artists.

Ranging from landscape to portraiture, this exhibition is expected to appeal to a wide range of tastes. Award-winning artist Reuben Colley is well established as one of the most significant interpreters of Birmingham’s urban landscape, and in 2003 he became the youngest living artist to have his work acquired for the Museum’s permanent collection. Colley’s latest paintings, which turn the spotlight on Aston, will be a highlight of the exhibition. James Byrne’s powerfully expressive landscapes will hang alongside evocative paintings of derelict industrial spaces by Rick Garland, and exciting new work by Annette Pugh inspired by vintage interiors. Among the exhibits will be Danny Howes’ stunning large-scale portraits of celebrity chef Glynn Purnell and West Midlands Mayor Andy Street. Howes was a finalist in this year’s Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the Year competition.

This exhibition is the latest in a series of collaborations between Reuben Colley Fine Art and Birmingham Museums Trust. It will be shown on the bridge linking the magnificent Victorian Round Room to the Edwardian galleries. With four of the artists based in Birmingham, this exhibition will be a celebration of the city’s flourishing artistic life.

The exhibition runs from 7th to 18th November 2018.
