Charlotte Verity

Born in Germany,  Charlotte Verity attended the Slade School of Art from 1973 to 1977 and won a Slade prize in her final year.

Charlotte Verity’s paintings come about slowly during many hours of intense looking and close observation. She is preoccupied by the changing nature of the visual world, natural light and the passing seasons.

 

In 1978 she was awarded a Boise travelling scholarship to study in Italy. Since graduating from the Slade she has exhibited regularly with the Anne Berthoud Gallery (1984, 1988, 1990), with Browse and Darby (1998, 2002, 2007) and, more recently, Purdy Hicks, all in London. Since 1980 Verity has been a regular exhibitor at both the John Moores Liverpool Open and at the Whitechapel Open.

Verity has had residencies at the Towner Art Gallery in Eastbourne, and was artist-in-residence at the Garden Museum, London. Verity has contributed to numerous group exhibitions in the UK, and internationally.

Since 2001, Verity has been teaching at the Royal Drawing School in London. Her work is in many public collections including the Arts Council Collection, UK; Deutsche Bank; the Garden Museum, London; Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego; Sir John Soane's Museum, London; Tate Education, London; and University College London.
