Exhibition maybes? AppArt and the Royal Academy


So we are right in the middle of exhibition season, and I'm out there!

Did I take part in AppART? Maybe? Well despite submitting an early application, I never received an official ‘yay’ or ‘nay’ back on decision day, and even when I sent a follow-up email to the AppART office, I didn’t get a response to that either. So who knows what happened there, but as the show is now over it’s obviously a ‘nay’, but it would have been nice to have been told one way or another.

So what about the Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy? Well, this is actually a ‘maybe’. I’ve had one of my pieces shortlisted for this prestigious show, and I now have to deliver it to London to see if they want to put it on the wall or not. This is still a long shot, but exciting nonetheless, and I’ve got an ever-growing reserve list of people wanting to buy it if it doesn’t get in! Watch this space for an update later in May, or subscribe to my mailing list to be the first to hear all of my news.

While I'll keep that one under wraps, this is the other image that they didn't want, so it's now available as a limited edition print from my Print Shop - only 25 copies available!
