Open Studios 2013 -23




Award winning artist Ric W. Horner is one of the county’s leading landscape painters whose professional career spans more than 30 years. His work focuses on the elemental qualities of open space, the energy of weather and the expressive qualities of light. He has opened his studio space to the public on various occasions over the past 10 years to  connect with visitors in a more personal way.



“…His mastery of sky, light and colour is breath taking!”

“Wow! My kind of art. Absolutely stunning. Love it!! Xx

“After seeing his work for the first time it completely changed the way I saw colour in nature, but especially the sky and dark clouds. This incredible oil on canvas captures a moment where the beautiful light and detail pulls you in, so you too are involved and immortalised in the moment.” 





Below: visitors to one of his Open Studio events. The next one will be from 14th -28th October 2023 as part of the East Kent Artists Open Studios and the Canterbury Festival. 



















Ric Horner at The Sportsman Seasalter

Ric created a solo exhibition at  the award winning ‘The Sportsman’ in Seasalter back in 2015 featuring the inspiring scenery of the Thames estuary.  This famous Michelin star pub is located 2 miles out of Whitstable, on the North Kent coast and is popular with weekend visitors and many Londoners. It is nicely furbished with rolling exhibitions showcasing the work of local artists.
