Albert Moulton Foweraker was born in Exeter, the son of Reverend Edmund Thomas Foweraker, the headmaster of Exeter Cathedral School where he was educated. He was an exhibitioner at Cavendish College Cambridge and went onto Christ’s College, Cambridge where he received a BA in Applied Science in 1893. He liked acting and music and rowed and played tennis for his college. He obtained a 1st Class Degree in 1896 as a Milling Engineer.

Foweraker only took up painting in his early 20’s and took it up professionally in 1898. His training was done in St Ives where he is recorded as organised painting expeditions for some of the members of the club to Andalucia in 1905 His address at this time was Villa Camara in Malaga.

He was a member of the RBA from 1901 to 1912 exhibiting 52 pictures. He exhibited at the RA and many London galleries as well as galleries in Birmingham, Glasgow, Liverpool and Manchester. He is well known for his painting of light effects particularly “Moonlight”. He became a member of the St Ives Society of Artists in the mid-1930’s.

 

Albert started an “Exhibition of Works by Modern Painters in Exeter” which later became “Devon and Cornwall Fine Art Society”. He travelled extensively in Europe to Spain, France and North Africa. He lived in Carbis Bay, Lelant, Cornwall in 1901 and at Northbrook Road, Swanage for many years. He left certain documents and papers relating to the Titanic disaster of 1912 where he was very suspicious of the enquiry findings, these were to be lodged in the British Museum. He died on 14th January 1942 at Swanage aged 68 and is buried in Godlingston Cemetery, Ulwell, Swanage.

Charles Hawes, known as Bud by his friends, was born in Huntington, West Virginia in 1909. Throughout his life Bud's great loves were art and people. These loves are palpably visible in all of his work. His work during his first career (32 years as a nationally recognized illustrator) focussed on magazines, newspapers, advertising agencies, cartoons and children's books. During this time he became a member of both the National Society of Illustrators and the American Watercolor Society. In 1964 Bud visited St. John in the U.S.V.I. and fell in love with the West Indies and her people. In 1965 he moved to St. Croix, U.S.V.I. where he began his prolific second career, that of a watercolor artist. Bud spent the next 28 years capturing his deep love for these islands and their people through his dynamic watercolors. Most of these paintings now hang throughout the world in the homes and offices of patrons who also shared that same love.

Born in 1942 the artist James Longueville started to paint professionally after a successful career in journalism. Initially inspired by the countryside around his studio in Cheshire, his travels have made him as well known for his portrayal of sunlit squares in France, luminous views of Venice as his familiar British landscapes and waterways. Equally able to work in both oil and pastel, his fascination is with the effect of light and atmosphere on his subject. He paints daily in pursuit of his passion, always searching for a new stretch of country or ancient monument where he can observe the play of light and colour that he portrays so well. His influences are a long line of European landscape artists from Boudin, Constable and the East Anglian School to Wilson Steer and Seago. James exhibits regularly at the Mall Galleries, with the Royal Society of British Artists and the Royal Society of Oil Painters. He also shows at the Royal Academy and the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists, where he was elected a member in 1989. He has twice won the Patterson Award at the Pastel Society, being elected a senior member in 1983 and his paintings now hang in corporate and public collections around the world.

Jack Merriott was born on 15th November 1901 in New Cross London  to John Boultwood Merriott (Railway ticket collector) and his wife  Eleanor  and studied art at Croydon School of Art and St Martin's School of Art.  On 18th June  1932 he married Hilda May Bridger the daughter of Harry Bridger. Jack painted landscapes and portraits in oil and watercolour.  He started work as a shipping clerk in a company exporting heavy machinery to South Africa but soon painted full time for a living. He exhibited at the Royal Academy, Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour, Royal Institute of Oil Painters, Royal Society of British Artists and Royal West of England Academy. He was elected RI in 1944, PS in 1951, SMA in 1954, ROI in 1959, President of the Wapping Group of Artists from 1947 to 1960, member of the Langham Sketch Club and the St Ives Society of Artists. Bradford City Art Gallery and Sunderland Museum and Art Gallery hold his work. He lived in Shirley in Surrey and Storrington in Sussex before moving to Island House, Polperro in the early 1950's. Jack moved back to Storrington, as travel to his many commitments throughout the UK was difficult from Cornwall. It was in 1968 when he was driving home to Storrington he skidded on black ice and was seriously injured. He never recovered from his injuries, dying later in that year. One of his hobbies was sailing and he also designed and painted posters for British Rail and other tourist agencies throughout the UK. A memorial service was held at "the artist's church", St James in Piccadilly London in 1969.
