Barry Keene is a painter in oils.  He studied under Bill Edwards at the Berkshire College of Art in the early 1960s and has exhibited with the Royal Society of British Artists at the Henley Festival.  His work is to be found in private collections throughout Britain and abroad.


Barry first started working in the art world at the Reading Fine Art Gallery in 1963 with a five year apprenticeship,  under the Fine Arts Trade Guild,  as a picture framer where he was also taught picture cleaning and restoration, surrounded by pictures and learning about them from the inside whilst also studying painting and drawing at the Berkshire College of Art.


In 1971 he opened his own gallery which ran for 45 years, where he exhibited fine art from the 18th to the 21st century including his own paintings and work by many other contemporary artists.  He also worked as a master picture framer, picture restorer and artist, supplying paintings and framing to museums and art galleries, artists and private clients.  The gallery and workshops were in Henley-on-Thames, originally at Queens Hall and later, from 1984 to 2016, at Thameside overlooking the river.  In 2016 he sold the gallery to spend more time painting though he continues to deal quietly in Paintings, Watercolours and Prints of all periods, working from his studio at home near Reading and also from a storage unit.
