Ealing Art Group, of which I am a member, is delighted to announce that their summer exhibition will take place this May at Gunnersbury Park Museum.

Their members, who live or work within the borough, produce material that is wide-ranging from the more traditional art, through modern to abstract, in a variety of media. They work with ceramics, metal/precious metal, papier mache and textiles and this exhibition reflects this eclectic mix.

The work on show will include paintings in various mediums, drawings, ceramics, stoneware, work in metal, mosaics and papier mache, all of which will be for sale.  This is also an opportunity to commission work from artists like myself who take portraiture commissions.

My own artwork will reflect the various genres and materials I work in including my latest original digital paintings of rock stars like Madonna, Sting and Rod Stewart, oil paintings from my floral and bathers series - and original drawings of musicians and buskers Chris Jagger (Mick's brother), Chris Sparsis and a Southbank Limbo dancer.  

If you would like to visit when I'll be on hand to have a chat, do come to the Private View or when I am stewarding: 2-4pm on Saturday 7 May and Sunday 22 May. Look forward to seeing you then!

The British Blues Exhibition will be at the Barbican Music Library for four months from 26 May and will feature exhibits from its own extensive collection, as well as exhibits from the Ealing Club CIC ‘the birthplace of electric Blues in the UK’ and the Paul Oliver Special Collection held at Oxford Brookes University.

The exhibition charts in items of all kinds the rise of British Blues music from its US and African roots in the 20th Century through to artists performing today.  It will include - at different times - two of my artworks. The first is a digital painting of Don Craine of Downliners Sect who died earlier this year.  The second is an oil painting, on loan from a private collector, of Robert Hokum co director of The Ealing Club and founder of the Ealing Blues Festival.

Among the other exhibits will be items relating to and donated by the first British Blues Exhibition Hall of Fame members, John Mayall and the late Chris Barber. Chris Barber played at the Barbican with his Jazz band, and, a co-founder of London’s Marquee Club, he worked with numerous Blues musicians such as Alexis Korner, and brought luminaries including Muddy Waters to the UK.

Curator: Darren Weale.

Spaghetti House Gallery Holborn Skylark Galleries artworks exhibition June 2022

Twenty one Skylark Galleries artists - including me - are preparing to exhibit in Spaghetti House Gallery at 20 Sicilian Avenue, Holborn from Tuesday 7 to Sunday 19 June.

Spaghetti House is a hidden gem in Bloomsbury and has been the home, for some years, of art exhibitions in its gallery below ground.

Situated in the beautiful open air arcade in Holborn opened in 1910, its feel is reminiscent of an Italian village.

Original artworks will range from traditional and digital paintings to photographs, sewn artworks and ceramics.

They will also reflect the varied subjects which inspire Skylark Galleries artists from the natural world - animals, birds, land and seascapes, to cityscapes, portraits, the human form and musicians. 

I will be displaying my digital artworks of Madonna, Sting, Freddie Mercury, Prince and Eric Clapton.  If you'd like to chat with me do come to the Private View or when I'm stewarding on Friday 17 June from 1-8pm.

Toni Ros, Manager of Spaghetti House Bloomsbury says, ''I'm pleased to be hosting Skylark at our gallery as I love the work of these artists.''

One of our artists will be on hand from 1pm-8pm each day to answer your questions about the original artworks on sale.

Richard Dickson, Skylark Galleries' exhibition organiser, says, "In these uncertain days we all need to have our spirits raised and our exhibition aims to provide colour, creativity and originality.''

SELECTED PAST EXHIBITIONS

2021

BEAT Borough of Ealing Art Trail Year 5 of Ealing Open Studios.

BEYOND THE DOOR Portraits and other recent works
LRG artists reflected on the unprecedented times we have experienced through the medium of portraiture, showing portraits created during the pandemic when our own front doors defined the way we live – both as a defence against a dangerous world and the means of escape from confinement. Artists chose subjects whose experiences are representative of the unfamiliar limbo through which we have been passing – Covid survivors, those with whom we have been confined, those we have only seen on Zoom or Facetime, fellow out of work creatives – and inevitably, ourselves. Shown at Bermondsey Project Space.

PORTRAYED! IWF UK 25 YEARS OF INSPIRING WOMEN
Portrayed! toured from The Chelsea Gallery, Kings Road, to The Heatherley School of Fine Art. It supported the Institute of Directors’ commitment to diversity and accompanied the inaugural Mackworth Lecture delivered by former Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard on leadership. Shown in the foyer of KPMG, it was linked to Barclays’ support for the mentoring HeforShe campaign in their Canary Wharf HQ. It was also the first exhibition in the newly re-named Mary Somerville room at Somerville College Oxford, where two of the inspiring women sitters were educated. Mary Somerville was a pioneering mathematician and scientist and, with the exception of the Queen, was the first woman to appear on a British banknote (Scotland £10).

SPOTLIGHT ON: FIRST EGYPTIAN BIENNALE

In 2013 I was among 50 international artists selected to take part in the first Egypt art biennale in Sharm el Sheikh. The biennale was run under the auspices of three Egyptian ministries: tourism, culture and foreign, with the aim of supporting tourism in the region. During our 10 day stay, we were asked to paint in public – in the town square, inspired by spectacular 'whirling dervish' and fire eating performances, in the desert nightclub housed inside a cave 'La Dolce Vita' and in the bustling Naama Bay shopping area.

In the grounds of the Sonesta Beach Hotel, where we stayed, we were visited by a stream of ministers as we each painted two 70 x 80cm pictures for the competition. The pictures were judged at the end of our stay by a panel of international judges, with prizes awarded at a televised gala evening attended by European and Middle Eastern art critics in the landscaped grounds of Le Royal Hotel Resort. Selected pictures then went on show at the hotel until Christmas. The closing night reception, with performances by Egypt's best known singers and dancers, was attended by the Admiral Governor of South Sinai (whose portrait I was asked to paint). Italian artist Archille Quadrini and I won the Judges' prizes.
