Organiser: Royal Albert Memorial Museum & Art Gallery

Solo exhibition by Guyana-born painter Aubrey Williams. The exhibition took place at the Royal Albert Memorial Museum & Art Gallery, Exeter, December 11 - 31, 1969. The exhibition featured some 45 paintings, many for sale (priced in guineas, the now obsolete British unit of currency). A modest catalogue was produced to accompany the exhibition, with a brief introduction by Max Chapman, which concluded “It will be seen that Williams’ imagery has grass roots in the South American jungle, but its exoticism has been progressively tempered, given more weight and simplicity. Of the pictures on view, probably “Autumn” best exemplifies this progression, being in fact his most recent. Yet there is a constant within the change, and it would be surprising if the total impact of these richly conceived canvases does not strike the viewer as exceptionally impressive.”
