STOP PRESS! We recently heard that ROSA SEPPLE has been elected as the very first female PRESIDENT OF THE ROYAL INSTITUTE OF PAINTERS IN WATERCOLOURS!!! Congratulations Rosa! We are so very proud to have been associated with you from the very beginning of your professional career as an artist. We look forward to exhibiting your work in May at AAF Hampstead Heath and again in October at the Autumn Edition of AAF in Battersea Park. Great News!!!!
Linda Blackstone Gallery started the Autumn Season with a three day exhibition in the City of Manchester. Buy Art. We exhibited the beautiful large stone sculpture of Paul Vanstone along with the ever popular ceramic sculpture by Yorkshire sculptor Eoghan Bridge and bronzes by Belgium sculptor Helene Jacubowitz. Stand 36 also exhibited internationally renowned artists in Manchester for the first time. Visitors enjoyed highly original new work by Israeli Pop Artist Dganit Blechner, wall sculpture by French artist Bernard Saint-Maxent, Street art by french artist Sebastien Levigne, photo-realism oil paintings by Paul Kavanagh and exquisite acrylic on board still life paintings by Australian artist Ian Mastin. The Exhibition was a great success and all our artists were so well received.
From 19-23 October we were back on Stand i12 at the Autumn Edition of the Affordable Art Fair in Battersea Park where we exhibited new work by PHIL ATRILL RCA MA., EOGHAN BRIDGE, MARTIN BROWN, CHRISTA HUNTER, HELENE JACUBOWITZ, PENELOPE LEE, SEBASTIEN LEVIGNE, J RICHARD PLINCKE RI., BERNARD SAINT-MAXENT and ROSA SEPPLE VPRI. All these artists were well received and sold well during the week. This year we introduced two new artists to our team of talented artists KATHRYN DAVEY and ALISON TYLDESLEY. Both Kathryn and Alison sold out all the work they had sent us and Kathryn had to empty her studio to enable us to have more work on show over the weekend. These sold too!!!! Well done Alison and Kathryn and welcome to the Linda Blackstone Gallery team of talented artists.
