The 2022 Society of Women Artists exhibition has opened in London’s Mall Galleries, and welcomed a great number of artists and art enthusiasts through the doors.
Although I can’t visit the exhibition myself, I have a friend, Freya, who attended the opening and took these brilliant photos. I am so happy to see my three pastel artworks as a part of this show, and so grateful to Freya for sharing this with me.
The SWA seeks works of the highest standard within its specific field, and promotes women artists with their annual show. The art is comprised of work by both SWA members and non members, and inclusion in this prestigious event is a huge compliment to all who are invited.
The pieces I have on display are A Handful of Salt, A Handful of Lotus Seeds and A Handful of Faith. These are three of a series of six studies inspired by the amazing Rehahn Photography.
The SWA exhibition is running till the 11th September, and more details can be found on their website.
You can learn more about these artworks in the following posts: A Handful of Salt in the Making, A Handful of Lotus Seeds in the Making and A Handful of Faith in the Making.
I am delighted to announce that I have three pastel paintings selected to be a part of this year’s Society of Women Artists exhibition. The SWA seeks works of the highest standard within its specific field, and promotes women artists with their annual show. The art is comprised of work by both SWA members and non members, and inclusion in this prestigious event is a huge compliment to all who are invited.
This will be the 161st SWA exhibition, and will be held at London’s Mall Galleries from the 6th – 11th September 2022.
I have been working towards my submission for this exhibition for over a year, and created the ‘A Handful of…’ series of six pastel paintings specifically for this opportunity. My portraits A Handful of Salt, A Handful of Lotus Seeds and A Handful of Faith will all be on display alongside work by many other exceptional women artists, and I am very proud to be in this number. Each of my artworks will be for sale through the exhibition, and once live I will share details of the online version of the show for anyone who is unable to be in London for the event itself.

I am very pleased to say that my pencil portraits A Thirst for Life and A Lifetime of Laughter were both shortlisted for the Bath Society of Artists 2021 open exhibition. This is an annual open show where half of the art exhibited is by Bath Art Society members and half by non-members like myself. Places are limited and highly sought after, so I was delighted to be in the running.
For the second stage of the selection process us artists had to deliver our work to the Victoria Gallery in Bath for judging. That meant a day trip and chance to explore this beautiful city, and it just so happened that whilst I was there the Holburne Museum had an exhibition of works by Dante Gabriel Rossetti. What a treat it was to see these Pre-Raphaelite paintiing, drawings and photographs in person. My favourite of the show was ‘Jane Morris (The Blue Silk Dress)’ as shown below, which Rossetti painted in 1868. It really is a stunning portrait which I could have stared at for hours.
From the judging process A Lifetime of Laughter has been selected and will be exhibited as a part of the Bath Society of Artists 116th annual art exhibition. As you can imagine I am thrilled to be one of the lucky participants in this prestigious show.
The Bath Society of Artists 2021 exhibition will run from Saturday 2nd October until Saturday 20th November at the Victoria Art Gallery.
I am thrilled to have had two artworks selected to be shown as a part of the Society of Women Artists’ 2020 exhibition.
My pencil drawings A Thirst for Life and A Lifetime of Laughter are part of the online exhibition and can be viewed along with work from my fellow women artists here
The show is open from the 22nd September till 31st December 2020. SWA exhibitions are typically held at the Mall Galleries in London, however due to the exceptional circumstances and challenges of this year, the show is for the first time being held online, giving opportunity for a global audience to enjoy it.
All works in the exhibition are available to purchase, and there will be a People’s Choice award amongst others, so enjoy the show and vote for your favourite piece.
Cub Scout has found a new home, thanks to visitors to the ArtAbility exhibition at Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens – fantastic show which is curated by and in aid of St.Teresas’ Leonard Cheshire Home near Penzance. It is an honour to have been invited to take part in this exhibition, which features works by both residents of St.Teresas and local artists, and I am delighted to be able to support the excellent work that they do. Cub Scout, you will be missed, though I hope you watch over your new owners for many years to come.
