April saw two artworks being selected for the Anagrams exhibition at Kingston Museum. 'The Walk' was selected for a Judges Prize.
I was also shortlisted for the inaugural Jackson's Open Art with a painting called 'High Season'. An on-line exhibition only so unfortunately no physical space to show it off. However some very good names on the list to keep me company.
Noise Rings came and went. A well attended and well received exhibition- thanks to all that came. Great to be back in Farnham.
Noise Rings opens this week at Farnham Maltings featuring a selection of my paintings and collages.
Private View : 11 Feb 2016, 6.30-8.00pm
5 Feb 2016 – 17 Feb 2016
Apologies for delayed updates and highlights. Not sure where the time has gone this year.
So a good year overall with being in the Griffin Gallery Open and the Neo Art Prize being stand out moments for me. A lot of new work made - some more successful than others but I'm happy with the current direction.
So 2016 brings a new website to launch and a small show at the Farnham Maltings in early February. Fingers crossed for more good news for the year ahead.
However I have a lovely body of new work that I'm just finishing off. Around ten new paintings and a dozen collages should start appearing on my main site soon. Hopefully I'll be able to find an outlet to exhibit this work in the new year.
