Framing costs notwithstanding (!) my show at the Horsham Museum and Art Gallery has been a fantastic experience. The private view was really well attended and I have been absolutely humbled by the kind comments I received that night and since. It has been really encouraging to know that people are interested in artists who are studying figurative art.
The exhibition features, predominantly, works on paper - showing how students in the academic tradition learn to draw. The Museum shows off the works to real advantage. Being used to looking at my work in isolation, for me it makes quite an impression seeing my pictures all together in one place!
The show 'Silence and Slow Time' is now into its last weeks and closes on 10th March.
Here are some images from the opening.
