This weekend, from Friday July 26th to Sunday July 28th 2013, you can see my recent painting ‘Deptford Lights’ on display at Royal Festival Hall as part of Southbank Centre’s summer Festival of Neighbourhood. Alongside the work of around 40 excellent and varied artists from the area, the painting will represent Deptford’s rich art community and cultural heritage in an exhibition called ‘8 Minutes From Here’. It should be a great show, so please stop in the the exhibition is you are out enjoying the Thames this weekend. There is also an informal reception on Saturday the 27th at 7:00 if you want to take part in the festivities.
Full information about the show and all that’s happening this weekend for Southbank Centre’s Festival of Neighbourhood can be found at www.southbankcentre.co.uk/

I also recently took part in an auction for a great charity called Creekside Ahoy who give children the opportunity to bond and learn through sailing down the Thames! All artists submitted one to three postcards, and I decided to make my three entries into one triptych of the dry riverbed that runs from the Thames down through Deptford. The set of three pieces was sold in the silent auction on June 9th, amongst many other great pieces from artists both well-known and emerging, form all around the world.

Last night was the opening of my new exhibition: Urban Landscape 2013 at Jane Newbery Gallery, Dulwich Village. It was a great night, and visitors really seemed to engage with the work, which I consider a big personal success. The painting W1 Alley also sold on its first day on display, which was a bonus on top of a great open house. Thank you to all those who spent their night with me and for sharing your interpretations, insights and feedback.
The show will run for the next 6 weeks until 28 June. Jane Newbery gallery is at 33 Dulwich Village London SE21 7BN. Gallery hours are Monday to Saturday 9:30 – 5:30, and Sundays 11:30 – 4:30. janenewbery.co.uk/gallery
