Grampian Hospitals Art Trusts is delighted to present the work of Gordon Edward Henry at His Majesty’s Theatre which will run form the 1st of December 2012 to 26 January 2013.
Born in Elgin, Gordon Henry studied graphics and typography at Gray’s School of Art. He designed and illustrated books while a Director of Aberdeen University Press. His commercial background led to his work being commissioned by groups and individuals throughout the UK and overseas. On his retirement as Chief Executive of the Aberdeen & Grampian Tourist Board his first commission was to produce 12 paintings for the Press & Journal millennium calendar. Due to most of his work being done on request, he does not exhibit on a regular basis.
Gordon was President of the Aberdeen Artists’ Society from 2000 to 2005.
His donated paintings have raised thousands of pounds at auctions in support of several local charities and his creative design work is much sought after in promoting and commemorating special events.
