SAFFRON Walden artist and resident of 50 years, John Bolam, is exhibiting at the Fry Art Gallery in the town from Saturday.

Works by the established painter, whose influences include French artists such as Edgar Degas and Georges Braque, will be on display at the Castle Street gallery until October 28.

John Bolam was born in 1922 and has lived in Saffron Walden with his wife Vivien for 50 years.

He was head of the Cambridge School of Art and Technology between 1970 and 1983, when he taught students from all over the world, many of whom went on to forge successful careers as artists.

His exhibition at the Fry Art Gallery, entitled Sharing the Journey, is inspired by the Chiltern countryside where John grew up and the less dramatic but equally beautiful East Anglian scenery where he has spent most of his life.

The Fry Art Gallery is open from 2pm to 5pm on Tuesdays and Saturdays, and 2.15pm to 5pm on Sundays, for the duration of the exhibition.
