Rolf Harris Art Tour Continues
Art enthusiasts have already been equipped to indulge their love for Rolf Harris as his last week was continued by national tour.
The Australian entertainment legend was at the Whitewall Gallery in Bournemouth on June 11th to promote his’ A Life in Art’ convention, which often showcased a selection of limited edition Rolf Harris prints.
Rolf’s national tour is in celebration of the 80th year of his and he explained that his living long and enduring popularity was right down to the reality that he truly appreciated the career of his as an artist and entertainer.
He told the Bournemouth Echo: “I guess it is all down to doing something that you like to do and getting paid to do it.”
The next stop on the British trip was Wales where Rolf went to the Blue Dot Gallery in St David’s shopping centre in Cardiff.
Rolf has an emotional connection to the country through his Welsh wife Alwen and family ties in Merthyr Tydfil where his dad and uncle emigrated from.
The artist revealed that he likes meeting art fans which have come from across the United Kingdom to look at Rolf Harris prints and learn more about the artwork on display.
He told Wales Online: “You wind up going along to these exhibitions and also you do not even manage to get round the paintings, there are so many individuals coming up to you and also asking for your autograph and planning to talk about the work, it is nice.”
Rolf’s Welsh adventure carried on as he followed up the Cardiff function with a date in Swansea at the Ice House where Rolf Harris prints were ranging in value from fifty five to 1,295.
Harris said he assumed his exhibitions appealed to people because they included a wide variety of topics.
He told Wales Online: “You’ve got brush scenes from Australia, studies from time we spent in South Africa last year, a great volume of work, and that’s a lot more engaging for almost all individuals I suppose. I will try to paint anything that catches my attention really.”
Rolf will probably be taking the tour of his to High Wycombe where by he will exhibit at the Whitehall gallery on June 19th.
Gallery manager Lotte Pedersen Hill told the Bucks Free Press that she was encouraged to have Rolf Harris prints on display as they have formerly moved men and women to tears.
