He spent some time in London but lived for most of his life in Tunbridge Wells. Between 1899 and 1913 he held eight one-man shows at the Dowdeswell Galleries in London. Of the one-man show of his watercolours at the Greatorex Galleries, Grafton Street in 1921, in which a number of the present watercolours were probably included, The Connoisseur commented: 'Mr E.A. Rowe arranged an attractive exhibition of watercolours in his accustomed metier. His drawings of old-world gardens are always pleasing, and evince marked sincerity of purpose'. (Connoisseur, LIX, p. 248).
