New Online Exhibition

We are all missing exhibition-going at this time of lockdown, but at least some galleries are making their exhibitions available online.  Group member Linda Gold is one of the artists to have her painting selected from over 1,000 entries to appear in The Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours 208th Exhibition at London’s Mall Galleries. Due to have opened next week, the exhibition can now be seen online.

Congratulations Linda – and let’s hope it’s not too long before we can see art in real life again as well as on our screens.

The Royal Watercolour Society, Contemporary Watercolour Competition, with a painting by Olivia O’Sullivan as mentioned in the previous news post, is also available for viewing online.
