Winchester Galleries is hosting an exhibition of work by J. Fenwick Lansdowne and Tristram Lansdowne, June 3 to 7.

The exhibition includes works for sale, along with the launch of J. Fenwick Lansdowne, a book which pays homage to the late Oak Bay artist’s work, with deeply personal portraits of a man who gracefully bridged art and science.

Edited by his son – who followed in his father’s footsteps as an artist – Lansdowne, with a foreword by Graeme Gibson and essays by Tristram, Robert McCracken Peck, Robert Genn, Patricia Feheley, Nicholas Tuele and Tony Angell.

Reception and book sales are on Saturday, June 7, from 2 to 4 p.m. Lansdowne and Nicholas Tuele will be in attendance.

Book sales are courtesy of Ivy’s Bookshop, Oak Bay.
