About Ron Savory

Ron Savory has been a practitioner in the arts from the late 1950’s. He began using pencil to draw, and thereafter, in 1958, he begun using oils, and at that time he sold his first painting to an art collector. Because Ron Savory had a thorough understanding of the physics and chemical nature of the art materials he had at his disposal, this allowed him to extend his ideas and used them to produce unique works of art, a process that is still evolving.

By 1967 he had earned a reputation, which was responsible for him being invited to exhibit in the newly established Carlart Gallery (Carlisle Chang, Trinidad’s highly renowned painter and designer) in Port of Spain. Several other invitations followed for solo presentations, including University of Sussex, Dominica, Barbados, St Lucia and Guyana. By 1970, he was identified as the suitable person to co-ordinate the realization of the mounting of the Carifesta 72. Roy Savory held thirty-six art exhibitions in Guyana.

Mr. Savory resides in Saint Lucia and still continues to practice as an artist.
