18th May – 29th June @ Victoria Art Gallery (Nr Pultney Bridge, Bath) 10.30am – 5pm every day
Two of my latest monotypes have been selected for the 114th Annual Open Exhibition. With such a variety of work on display it is well worth a visit.
The Gallery says, ” This highly popular exhibition showcases the best of the region’s artistic talent and is a must for art lovers and collectors alike, with all works for sale. The Society was founded in 1904 with 26 members. It has grown over the years to a membership of around 120 diverse, talented artists. Many distinguished 20th-century painters have exhibited with the Society including Walter Sickert, Patrick Heron, Mary Fedden and Howard Hodgkin.
The annual exhibition is also open to non-members and attracts up to 1,000 entries, with sales doubling in the last few years. The prizes on offer total more than £3,000 During the exhibition members of the public can vote for their favourite artwork; the winner receiving the Public Choice Prize.”
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.
Bank Holiday weekend 4th – 6th May
Come and see my new work at Hannah More Cottage as part of the Cheddar Arts trail. I have recently been enjoying printmaking and there will be monotypes of the local landscape on show alongside my latest graphite drawings.
I share the space with Lindy Paul’s paintings and ceramics by Emma Lomas and we will be serving tea, coffee and cake. We look forward to welcoming you to our venue.
‘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.
