Goldmark, Uppingham, the internationally renowned and hugely successful gallery in England’s smallest county of Rutland, is to host a pre-Christmas exhibition of Robert Dawson’s paintings.


Robert Dawson (1926-97) was a man of immense talent and generosity of spirit. He was a painter, inspirational teacher and musician. Dawson left school at 17 and was offered a scholarship to Stoke-on-Trent College of Art but was persuaded by his mother to join a solicitor’s office. Aged 22, Dawson forsook the law and joined a touring dance band as a saxophonist, performing in US Airforce bases in Germany. In the mid-sixties, he retrained as a primary school teacher, after studying English and Art at Clarendon College, Nottingham.  

Dawson, a great collector and lover of art, was a member of the Staffordshire Society of Artists and had several solo exhibitions. In 1973 and 1974 he won the Holbrook Prize at Nottingham Castle Museum. When Dawson died he left a substantial body of work, much of which will be shown for the first time in this major exhibition at the Goldmark Gallery. 

The quality and commitment of Dawson’s work is well summed up by his friend Sir Kyffin Williams R.A. who commented in 2000:- “Bob Dawson was a man of total integrity. He was a large and gentle man who lived with the high standards he set himself while producing work of very great merit. Because he painted what he loved he was able to communicate that love to others.”

The exhibition will be available to view online at goldmarkart.com . goldmark.tv will feature a hosted walkthrough of the whole exhibition.
