Beckstones Art Gallery and the artist Alan Thompson have had a very close relationship for more than 30 years. Alan Thompson started exhibiting at Beckstones when he was still in his twenties and has continued doing so ever since. Almost all of Alan Thompson’s beautifully lit, exquisitely painted lakeland landscapes have passed though the Gallery during that time and have established for him a huge collector base in many countries. The artist is mainly known for his Lake District oil painting which has constituted the vast bulk of his life’s work to date and has earned him the deserved reputation he now enjoys. Alan has also painted occasional flower studies and a number of French and Italian landscapes. Born in Cumbria in 1953, Alan Thompson studied at Carlisle College of Art and then at Leicester where he gained a First Class Honours Degree in Fine Art and a scholarship to the Slade, University College London, where he studied for two years under Freud, Coldstream and Uglow. Alan Thompson then spent a year painting in Southern Spain before taking up painting full-time as a professional artist and has since participated in many exhibitions. Living and working here in Cumbria, Alan Thompson has the advantage of seeing his inspirational subject matter daily and has a close affection for and intimate knowledge of the Lake District in all its seasons. Numerous examples of his work are to be found in many collections, both public and private, around the world. Alan's 5 solo exhibitions since 2008 have all been hugely successful, the next one is planned for 2017.
