Two exhibitions I’m in coming up!
The Draw II – Thursday 23rd April 2015
The Draw II will take place at 7pm Thursday 23rd April 2015 at The Cello Factory, 33-34 Cornwall Rd, London, SE1 8TJ. The art will be on display and open for public viewing daily from Thursday 16th April from 2-6pm.
Over 130 artists, including me – see Dream Of Longing Again below, have donated art to raise money for The London Group to fund the Open exhibition 2017 and to tour a selection of that exhibition. Works have been donated by London Group members, invited artists and artists who have shown with the Group at recent Open Exhibitions. Five Royal Academicians who are London Group members have donated and other eminent participants include Glen Baxter, Eileen Cooper RA, Robyn Denny, John Edwards, William Feaver, Peter Freeth RA, Mail Morris, Deanna Petherbridge and Stan Smith (past London Group President).

MONO 1 – 23 June – 5 July 2015
Yet aside from these positive and negative aspects black and white also can suggest refinement, taste stripped back to the simple contrast between two elements. Without the emotional charge of colour the artist’s intent and expressive means are laid bare. Neither the artist nor viewer can take refuge – art in black and white carries a concise message and demands our immediate attention.
