Trained as a Painter/Printmaker, Bob Watson enjoyed a successful and rewarding career as a teacher in Secondary and Further Education as well as a variety of In-Service and Adult Education programmes and workshops. His work with students of all ages and backgrounds always reflected the strong commitment to his own creative practice and strong belief in the vital importance of creativity and design awareness.

Since retiring from full-time teaching as Head of Creative Studies at Hartlepool Sixth Form College, Bob Watson has continued to produced paintings and large-scale murals for schools, industry and public areas. His fascination with drawing and print media finds appropriate subject-matter in the northern seascape/landscape and the powerful forms of Durham Cathedral, Newcastle, Whitby and the heavy engineering and historic ship restoration for which the region is well known.

He has exhibited in one-man and group exhibitions throughout the northern region over many years and is represented in numerous public and private collections including Hartlepool Borough Council, Cleveland County, Hartlepool Nuclear Power Station, Huntsman Tioxide Chemicals, Camerons Brewery Ltd. and the Hartlepool Renaissance Collection.

The opening offers a great opportunity to meet Bob and ask any questions you may have about the work on display over drinks and nibbles.

Hope to see you there.
