Barbican Library Nov 2018

Drawing London at the Barbican Library 

“Bartholomew Fayre – All of London is There”

Friday 30 November – Saturday 22 December 2018 

Drawing London is a group of artist friends keen to explore the vibrant life and colour of London. We meet every month to sketch and paint in familiar and lesser known areas of London such as Leadenhall Market, Covent Garden ,  Southbank, Greenwich etc.  Our members’ work is often exhibited in Mall Galleries , Menier, Pallant Gallery , St Martin-in-the-Fields, Lloyds, Morden Hall and through our own group exhibitions, most recently at the UCLH Street Gallery.  Our next show, just before Christmas 2018, is at Barbican Library. Entitled ‘Bartholomew Fayre – All of London is there’, we celebrate 400 years of that raucous celebration of London life, and our 18 years of painting joyfully together. Come and see our work 30 November – 22 December 2018 at Barbican Library EC2Y 8DS

Marion at ‘Not the Royal Academy’

Marion says:

The Llewellyn Alexander Gallery accepted three pictures from me this year for their annual ‘Not the Royal Academy” exhibition, and when Jillian phoned to tell me which they had chosen, she made a point of saying “Oh, we want the London ones!”, so good news for us all, I guess!

The exhibition started on June 13th and my “Embankment” painting sold on the first day hurrah!  No news since then, but I’m still crossing my fingers for another sale (or two!) before the exhibition ends August 19th
