I have 6 pictures in a group show at the York Street Gallery in Ramsgate at the moment. The show is along with the gang of us that run and/or help out at the New Kent Gallery in Broadstairs. It's on until the 27th. Poster below.
I will Be at Windsor Contemporary Art Fair this coming weekend, send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like tickets. Private view is Friday(8th) night 6-9.
I have two pictures in the Society of Graphic Fine Art (SGFA) show at the Menier Gallery in London. The pictures are 'Mono' and 'Foolish Handshake'. I was delighted to discover at the Private View this week that 'Foolish Handshake' had won 'Best In Show (Colour)', this was especially rewarding as the standard of the show was very high.
I have a stand at East Sussex Art Fair at Brighton Racecourse this weekend. Lots of excellent artists there, let me know if you need ticket.
I am now an associate member of the Society of Graphic Fine Art. After having tried a few organisations of artists I think this is the one that suits me best, and fortunately I passed their selection process! I will take part in their annual open exhibition (if selected) as I have done in the past, and see how we go from there.
In their April-July edition, the Isle Magazine (for all things Thanet) featured an article on 'Current Thanet Landscape Artists', somehow I got included in this description, along with proper landscape artists like Darren Lewis, Anthony Giles and Karen Hiscock-Lawrence. The article starts on page 50, Im on page 53, the picture 'Silent Film Star' (see post below) is printed on page 106 in the calendar section. Here's the text -
I have a few pictures in a group show 'Emerging Art' at the New Kent Gallery here in Broadstairs, its on throughout January. This one, 'Silent Film Star' is fairly new, it's of Broadstairs too, it was an experiment using a paint roller to give a background colour to draw over, the picture ended up fine, but the roller didn't do what I hoped it would!
So for the 3rd year running Ive been chosen for the shortlist exhibition for Artist and Illustrators Magazine 'Artist of the Year'. 'Mono' is the picture selected, which unusually is the picture I would have chosen too! it's a house in Percy Road, Broadstairs. You can vote for my picture,(or any of the others shortlisted!) here.
My picture below (it's the one on the home page).
