City of Gold

Just to say that the London Printmakers‘ exhibition at the Oxo gallery on the Southbank is only on for another week – the last day is Sunday 22nd May. Opening hours are every day from 11-6, admission free.
I have a few copies of City of Gold available at the show, if anyone is interested in acquiring one, but – I’m pleased to say – the edition is selling out fast…

This Saturday at the Oxo Gallery

London Printmakers have a new show on at the Oxo Gallery on the South Bank and I will be there, manning the gallery all day this Saturday (7th May) from 11am – 6pm.

I would really like to be able to say that that there will be fireworks, champagne and celebrities, but unfortunately no – there will only be two tired and slightly emotional printmakers present, but please do come along anyway and brighten our day….

Last Few Days !

It’s the last chance to drop in and see my solo exhibition at Cambridge Contemporary Art – it has been extended for an extra week and this Bank Holiday Monday is the very last day.

All my lino cuts from the last few years are on show in the gallery, including a few rare ones not often exhibited. Although most of the framed copies have sold, there are still unframed ones available to buy.

I also have some paintings to see, including this one, Way Out, featured on the front of the invitation, (although it’s now sold).

London Original Print Fair

The London Original Print Fair is on next week at the Royal Academy, Piccadilly, London W1.
Opening hours are Tuesday 19th April 10am – 9pm, Wednesday 20th April 10am – 9pm, and Thursday 21st April 10am – 6pm. It’s a fantastic show if you’re interested in prints.

I have a few free tickets if anyone is interested – email me and I’ll post one to you….

I will be showing some linocuts on the Royal Society of Painter Printmaker’s stand, including this one: True Love on the Tube, 33 x 34 cms, £295 framed.

Other linocut artists of note will include Pablo Picasso….

Press Freedom, Richmond

This is some of the work currently blocking up the corridor in the studio – it’s awaiting collection later today to go to The Station in Richmond, North Yorkshire, for the Press Freedom exhibition. (On from 2nd April- 6th May.)

Susie Perring, Sonia Rollo and myself from Half Moon Studio have been invited to exhibit – other printmakers showing include Eileen Cooper, Anita Klein and Ed Kluz, . Fellow London Printmaker Colin Moore will also have work there.

If you’re in the area, please drop by – it should be really interesting…..

London Lives Exhibition

I am among the 100 artists whose London themed work (City of Gold shown left) is showing at the Bankside Gallery, close to Tate Modern, in September. The exhibition has been organised by the gallery, Network Rail and Cass Art with the support of the Guardian newspaper.

One work from the exhibition will be selected to be shown on hoardings across Blackfriars Bridge while the new Thames-spanning Blackfriars railway station is being built. My linocut, First Light at Farringdon, has also been on the bridge for the past year – I wrote about it here

London Lives, Bankside Gallery, 48 Hopton Street, London, from 9-19 September

Last Weekend at the Oxo Gallery

After three busy weeks, it is the final weekend for the London Printmakers exhibition at the Oxo gallery.
Here are a few photos of last Sunday, when I was invigilating the show with my colleague, Karen Keogh. It was very busy all day. As the gallery is right on the South Bank, between the London Eye and Tate Modern, it consequently has a tremendous footfall. Lots of people pass by and just seem to drop in (and hopefully then buy something).
Anyway, if anyone is in the neighbourhood, please come and say hello….
