Well, what a lovely surprise! I’ve been accepted for the RSA Open Exhibition for ‘Cockenzie Power Station’, above.
I’m delighted, and surprised because I’ve been shortlisted for the SSA (Society of Scottish Artists) exhibition a couple of times, and was also shortlisted for the RSA, so didn’t expect to be accepted for that. The preview night on the 27th November is my Birthday – what a nice present!
Here’s info and website…
28 November 2015 – 14 February 2016
The RSA Open Exhibition has a long history of celebrating the best of contemporary practice. After having been part of the RSA Annual Exhibition for over 180 years, it now enjoys its own slot in the RSA Calendar. Drawing from artists across the whole of Scotland and beyond, this exhibition showcases around 400 works annually and features a wide range of small and medium sized works (max. 80cm in any direction) selected through open submission including paintings, drawings, sculptures, prints and photographs.
Please note that this year the RSA Open Exhibition will be spread over two floors in the RSA Upper and Lower Galleries. It will share the upper galleries with the ESSA exhibitions (Exhibiting Societies of Scottish Artists) and will be open throughout the duration of those shows.
