I am thrilled to report that my painting ‘I’m blown away’ has been selected for inclusion in the RSMA’s 50th Anniversary Exhibition at the Prestigious Mall Galleries, just off Trafalgar Square in central London.
I submitted the painting in July for the first stage of judging and was ‘shortlisted’ for the second stage which involved sending the Painting to London for the Judges to see and deliberate over.
I’m so excited to have made it right through the judging and selection process and been selected from over 1,100 submissions to appear alongside paintings by some of Britain’s leading marine artists. The exhibition will be on display at Mall Galleries in central London between 28 September to 8 October 2016. I am looking forward to going to London for the opening! This is the second time I have been selected (the last time was in 2012) so I know the exhibition will draw a big crowd in this fantastic venue, especially as this year is the 50th Anniversary of the society’s Royal Charter.
The Royal Society of Marine Artists Annual Exhibition has come to be recognised as the most prestigious and varied exhibition of marine art in the UK. The exhibition’s theme is the sea and everything related to it, from beaches and creeks to harbours and boats. The premier marine art exhibition in the country, it will feature over 400 works from emerging and well-established artists across a range of media, including oil painting, watercolour, pastels, prints, and sculpture. All work is available for sale, so anyone can take some of the sea home with them!
