The NEAC was founded in 1886 and became an important place where young artists in particular could exhibit and find support. Richard had his first work accepted to an NEAC open show in 1927, and went on to exhibit nearly 150 paintings and drawings in NEAC shows over his lifetime. He was elected a member in 1943 and was later made an honorary member.

1927 - Fantazia
1946 - Drydock
1970 - Stormy Morning, Mid-Wales
1985 - The White Sail
