Andrew is very pleased to hear that a still life he painted earlier this year – ‘Portrait of a Lemon Meringue’ – is to be included in the NOA, (National Open Art), 2017 Exhibition.
Professional and amateur artists aged 15 and over have submitted works in a variety of mediums and each entry has been judged anonymously, making the competition one of the most democratic in the UK and Ireland operating today.
Overall, this exhibition has a strong contemporary style. However, more conventional pieces sit well within the show. This diversity in the range of works selected provides an interesting view on where the process of combining traditional techniques with a more explorative approach can offer new ideas. Bridging these areas of study has always held Andrew’s interest, when developing his abstract, figurative and still life pieces.
The finalists works will now go on to be exhibited in the 21st National Open Art Exhibition at The Bargehouse Galleries, Oxo Tower Wharf on Southbank in London this Autumn.
The Oxo Tower Wharf is an award-winning, landmark building situated on the riverside walkway part of London’s fast moving South Bank and Bankside areas. This vast, untouched four-storey industrial building is a wonderful destination – home to over 30 innovative contemporary design studios, shops, cafés, bars and restaurants with breathtaking river views – and so well worth exploring.
A programme of events will be taking place during the exhibition with collaborations between NOA Vice President Gavin Turk and Deborah Turk’s House of Fairy Tales along with Be Smart About Art, Explore Learning and more to be announced.
The 21st National Open Art Exhibition opens at the Bargehouse Galleries, Oxo Tower Wharf Southbank London | 17 – 26 November 2017.
