'Life with Polly' 22 Oct - 2 Nov 2013

The Upstairs Gallery, Berkhamsted, is hosting a retrospective exhibition showcasing the work of Local Artist Alma Duncan Rafter 'Polly'. 

Alma Duncan ‘ Polly’ was born and brought up in Liverpool where she trained at Liverpool College of Art for five years.  After graduating she became Head of Art at Huyton College and then in 1960 she moved to Berkhamsted School for Girls, where she remained a much loved and respected member of staff until her retirement in 1995.


Art was Polly’s life.  She was a prolific artist: not only a brilliant graphic artist with an enormous love for architecture, but also a great caricaturist - capturing people and events with her sharp eye and acerbic wit – her pictures show not only her unique observational skills and love of architecture, but also her sense of fun and laughter and we hope that this exhibition does justice to her many talents.
