Dale Devereux Barker

Dale Devereux Barker was born in Leicester on 4 February 1962, son of Kenneth L. Barker (1936-) and his wife Vilma Ann née Devereux (13 September 1938-1998), who married at Leicester in 1958. Dale was educated at Alderman Newton's Grammar School, Leicester and studied at Loughborough College of Art and Design, Leicester Polytechnic and at the Slade School of Fine Art 1980-1986 under Stanley Jones (1933-2023). Since 1986, Dale has lectured widely in printmaking and continues to teach regularly at Ipswich Art School and at the University College Suffolk. He married at Ipswich in 1991, Rebecca N. Weaver (born 1962). A printmaker specialising in reduction linocuts and screen-prints, his work combines a celebration of colour and form with warmly engaging subject matter with objects about the home, mealtimes, figures in interiors or engaged in daily activity which take on a new life through his very personal imagery. In 1996 elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers. A past member of the Suffolk Group of Artists, he has exhibited widely including the Royal Academy also showing at Curwen Gallery, London; Galerie Dusseldorf, Perth, Western Australia; Landsberg Museum, Germany; Fermoy Art Gallery, Kings Lynn; Buckinghamshire County Museum; Printworks, Sudbury; Buckinghamshire County Museum; 'Modern British Prints' Bircham Contemporary Arts, Norfolk; The Manor House Museum, Bury St Edmund's with solo exhibitions at Christchurch Mansion, Ipswich; The Box Gallery, Suffolk and Bircham Gallery, Norfolk and Dale has had several exhibitions at Jill George Gallery, London and Printworks, Colchester. He has works in many private and public collections including the Victoria & Albert Museum. He is the author of 'Dale Devereux Barker: Excessive Pleasures' (1999) and lived at Capel Grove, Capel St Mary, near Ipswich, Suffolk.
