Chelsea Art Society Award for a Painting - St Michaels Mount
This evening was the private view for Chelsea Art Society’s 62nd Annual Exhibition. I am very pleased to say that I won the Chelsea Art Society Award for a Painting for my picture of St Michael’s Mount in Cornwall. The society, which was formed in 1910, holds its annual exhibition in a beautifully panelled hall in Chelsea Old Town Hall on the Kings Road in London.
Chelsea Old Town Hall
The exhibition runs until Sunday 21st June and is open daily 10am-7pm. Closing at 1pm on the final day.
There is much excitement here at the moment. Today is the official publication date for my wife’s novel Molly’s Millions.
She has previously had two novels published in Germany, one of which was made into a film, but this is her first novel to be published in the UK.
You can read all about it on her website victoriaconnelly.com and there is also a competition to win a signed copy.
The summer show at Llewellyn Alexander Fine Paintings opens on Monday 8th June. Titled Not the Royal Academy 2009, this fine exhibition is London’s answer to the Salon des Refusés.
Every painting is for sale and may be taken by the buyer straight away, creating space for another to be displayed. Paintings will be on show for three weeks, after which new work will be hung.
Last year I was very pleased to hear that my painting of Kensington Gardens was the first to sell when the exhibition opened.
