Watts Farewell

The Trustees and staff of the Watts Gallery said farewell and a huge thank you to Richard Ormond after his 37 years yes THIRTY SEVEN years of service to the Watts Gallery as Chairman of the Trustees. The Gallery is a very different place from 37 years ago and more particularly from 10 years ago. The place is transformed into “Watts Gallery Artist Village” and is now a “must visit” location in Surrey. Richard, who is a very distinguished art historian (the world expert on Singer Sargent) brought his deep knowledge, leadership and charm (and benefaction) to so successfully lead the Gallery to what it is today. It was privilege and pleasure to work with him. We wish all success to his worthy successor MaryAnne Stevens.
