RWS Autumn: Less is More

7 October – 5 November 2022

‘For their annual Autumn exhibition at Bankside Gallery, artists of the Royal Watercolour Society are exploring the notion of ‘less is more’. But have no doubt, this exhibition will be anything but understated. The results of this experiment promise to deliver a display with a huge range of painted interpretations of this debatable concept. Whether artists agree with the statement or not, visitors are promised to be intrigued and inspired by the artworks on display.​’

Art Fundraiser in Aid of Ukraine

I have a work in this online exhibition organised by the Bankside Gallery.

Art Fundraiser in aid of Ukraine
Online Exhibition | 16 – 23 March

In response to the horrific events unfolding in Ukraine, we have launched an online art fundraiser with 100% of the proceeds going to the Disasters Emergency Committee’s Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.

This exhibition is made up of a brilliant selection of paintings and original prints, all of which have been very generously donated by artists of the Royal Watercolour Society (RWS) and Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers (RE).

We hope that you enjoy this collection and find an artwork to treasure, while supporting such an important cause.
