I am very excited to share that one of my wave paintings has reached the finals of the Art Unlimited Open Art Competition 2023!

The Award Ceremony will take place at the Bridport Art Centre on Friday 15th September, from 6.30 - 9 pm. The winner’s painting and finalists’ entries will then be available to view in an exhibition at Art Unlimited Gallery in Bridport from the 16th to the 27th of September.
It's very exciting as all finalists get the opportunity to have their work assessed by 4 skilled judges including Lady Victoria Conran and Global President of Christie’s Auctioneers, Jussi Pylkkanen! Select finalists will also have their work loaded onto Christie’s live website and viewed by their global art buyers. The first prize is £2500, plus there are several other prizes.
Art Unlimited launched its first Open Art Competition in 2022 and promised to return this year with a bigger, better event, including opening the competition to international artists. They succeeded and have received a great response. The number of entries has meant that they will be able to give something back to the community a year ahead of plan, details of which will be announced at the awards evening.
