On Tuesday evening I attended the Preview evening for Artists & Illustrators Magazine‘s “artist of the year 2014” exhibition.
I was delighted to be chosen as one of 50 shortlisted artists out of over 3000 entries with my entry “Last Light, Ruwi”, particularly as it came in my 30th anniversary year.
You can read more about my painting in a blog post I wrote 7th October about the competition.
The exhibition is being held at the Mall Galleries, London until 17th January.
If you’re in London during this period I can recommend calling into the Mall Galleries (situated on the Mall near Admiralty Arch) to see the exhibition for artist of the year 2014. It features a wide range of artistic styles and mediums.
Also, try to see the stunning Rembrandt show at the National Gallery which finishes 18th January. It’s worth putting up with the crowds to take in the late works of one of the greatest painters of all time.
I managed to get to the Rembrandt, Late Works show and despite the crowds was able to make several sketchbook studies in my moleskine sketchbook using charcoal pencils. I’ll be saying more about this in a future blog post.
