Museum exhibition opening cancelled due to snow

Surrey Heath Museum is exhibiting the works of local artist Percy Harland Fisher until 9th March 2013. The official opening was cancelled due to the snow.

Fisher moved to Camberley in 1903, on returning from touring the continent. Fisher, who suffered from repeated bouts of bronchitis, settled in Camberley as its pine wood walks were considered healthy for those with respiratory ailments. His work was exhibited at the Royal Academy.

The Museum has a large collection of paintings by Percy Harland Fisher [1865-1944]. Fisher’s The Washing Line was No.6 in my Painting of the Week series. Just to sit and ponder on that painting alone, is justification for a visit to the Museum. Here’s a view of part of the exhibition.
