RWA Friends Biennial Exhibition

The Friends exhibition at the Royal West of England Academy ends on Sunday 12th May

I am delighted that all four of my entries were selected and if you find yourself in Bristol over the next few days then this exhibition is well worth a visit.

The show has been described as a ‘triumph’ and ‘as good as the Open’ – with the selectors admitting they were ‘amazed’ at the quality of the works submitted.

Over 340 works were entered, whittled down on selection day to a show of 181 works by 94 artists – covering painting, drawing, photography, printmaking, sculpture and even an architectural drawing that comes complete with its own 3-D viewing glasses.

The show runs until 12 May in the Cube and Link galleries. Entry is free and all works are for sale – and at very affordable prices.

Book Cover Illustration

‘She Didn’t Wave’

I was delighted to have been asked to produce an illustration for the cover of a book by Ian Mercer who has spent many years searching for the truth about his family’s past.  The story begins in 1920 when Ian’s mother was left at an orphanage at the age of 7 ….

Both Ian and myself are extremely pleased with the artwork and how it hints at the story behind the title.  A fascinating, true story of love and war.

Gallery Show

Featured artist @ Church House Designs Gallery

Visit this delightful gallery and bespoke gift shop in Congresbury where you will find my monochromatic landscapes of the Mendip Hills on display on the main gallery wall.  When delivering my work for hanging I couldn’t resist one of the landscaped ceramics, which seem to complement my work very well.

My work will be on display throughout June so if you are passing through Congresbury  do take a left turn opposite the Ship & Castle pub to seek out the gallery. churchhousedesigns.co.uk

        20180323_204717_resized_1

If you visit the Victoria Art Gallery between now and 12th May you will see my two latest graphite drawings of the Mendip Hills selected for the society’s 113th open exhibition.  I love being out in the landscape and there is something particularly promising about bare winter trees that are bathed in light. The strong contrast between light and dark very much appeals to me and the materials I use help me to convey this in my work.

This annual exhibition is well worth a visit for the variety and amount of work on display.  You will find paintings, drawings and printmaking alongside ceramics, collage and sculpture.
