Lewis Hazelwood-Horner awarded membership to the Royal Society of British Artists


LARA is proud to congratulate Lewis on this most recent success

The Royal Society of British Artists is one of the UK’s most prestigious art organisations. Inaugurated in 1823, the RBA originally acted as an alternative society to the Royal Academy, whose membership at the time was limited to fifty. Amongst its past members the RBA can boast such luminaries as Walter Sickert, Philip de László, LS Lowry, Henry Moore, Peter Greenham, Sir Roger de Grey, Carel Weight and Colin Hayes.

'At the Workbench, Lobbs', Lewis Hazelwood-Horner

The RBA’s newest member Lewis Hazelwood-Horner is well-known among the art community for his series of paintings undertaken in residence at small craft-based businesses. In 2016 Lewis won the Threadneedle Prize for his painting ‘Salt in Tea’, which formed part of a series of paintings produced at James Smith and Son, the umbrella shop and manufacturer. Other residencies include Holland and Holland, the gunmakers, Lobbs, the bespoke bookmakers, and various breweries, including the Truman Brewery and the Redemption Brewery.

As a member of the RBA Lewis enjoys a six painting entitlement at each Annual Exhibition. We look forward to seeing Lewis’ paintings at the Mall Galleries for many years to come! To see what Lewis has been working on recently, please watch the fascinating video by Daniel Turner below.
