Members of the Society and invited guests previewed the exhibition which features Boris’ paintings and drawings of Guildford scenes complemented by a display of some of his wartime drawings, completed when Boris a teenager, had been exiled from Lvov (then in Poland) to Siberia with his mother.

The drawings prompted conversation and much admiration

The Mayor said that Boris had started drawing as a young child and his paintings now formed a much valued collection and record of Guildford as it is, and as it has been throughout the post war decades.

Many of the prints can be purchased.

The exhibition is in the wood panelled rear gallery and in the first floor of the brew house
