About Tony Foster

Foster lives in Cornwall, England. He has traveled around much of the world, always in search of its unspoiled natural beauty, “recording his experiences, sharing the delight of his discoveries, and arguing for the protection of these fragile places.” In making his watercolor journey paintings, Foster has visited and painted a wide range of breathtaking landscapes, from Death Valley—America’s lowest, hottest, and driest national park—to Mount Everest, Earth’s highest mountain above sea level. Elected a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society in 1994, Foster received the RGS Cherry Kearton Memorial Medal in 2001 “for his artistic portrayal of the world’s wilderness.” In this talk, the artist will discuss his many adventures over the years as an artist-explorer, explaining why he cares so deeply about the remaining uncultivated regions of our endangered planet.

This program is presented through the generosity of the Terry F. Green 1969 Fund for British Art and Culture.
