Members Gallery - Ted Atkinson
Trained as a sculptor at Liverpool College of Art and the Slade School (Univ. Lond) and later as a printmaker at the Central School of Art, London.
After leaving the Slade he pursued a career in art education, initially as head of the sculpture dept. at Exeter College of Art, and later at the Universities of Leeds and Coventry (Lanchester).
However, East Anglia has been his base since he set up his sculpture studio in Wivenhoe in the 60's.
Over the years he has contributed to many shows nationally and internationally with the main body of work directed towards architectural commissions, with major public sculptures sited in Britain, Germany, Holland and the USA.
In 1988, along with Moore, Frink and Armitage, he was one of six sculptors invited to represent Britain at Expo'88 in Brisbane.
Representative printworks can be found in a number of public and permanent collections including the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, the Stadt Wetzlar Museum, Germany and the University of Ohio, USA.
