Exhibition successes!

My aquatint "Floodlit Octagon, Ely Cathedral" was selected for "The Masters: Etching" at The Bankside Gallery, London. My steel etching "Charlestown" was voted "Top 20" at the Cambridge Open Art Exhibition at Swavesey Village College, and subsequently exhibited at The Babylon Gallery, Ely.

It was a great honour to have my aquatint "Floodlit Octagon, Ely Cathedral" chosen by the great Norman Ackroyd RE to be part of "The Masters, Etching" at the Bankside Gallery in October. 

My steel etching "Charlestown" just failed to make it on to the wall of the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition last year (it went through all but the very last round of selection).  It was selected as one of the Top 20 in the Cambridge Open Art Exhibition, and subsequently formed part of the Top 20 exhibition at the Babylon Gallery.

I am currently showing prints back at my alma mater, as part of the "Cambridge Perspectives" exhibition in the Architecture and History of Art Faculty Library.
