Report: Jubilee weekend Private Art View at Chelsea Old Town Hall, pt 2

On the eve of the Diamond Jubilee weekend, chandeliers sparkled high above a sea of artists’ colors, including my own giclée prints, pictured here with me (left) during Friday’s private view reception at the Untitled Artists Fair. Although less figurative than mine, I noticed that another artist, Rachel Jeffery, as I aim to do, also appears to use light and heighten color in her work (lower right). Rachel came up to exhibit on King’s Road, with her paintings of sunny, Cornish rock pools, all the way from South West England, where I was actually raised!

Report: Jubilee weekend Private Art View at Chelsea Old Town Hall, pt 1

British artists filled two halls on King’s Road, Friday night, the start of the Diamond Jubilee weekend, for a private art view in Chelsea. Myself (pictured left) with Sarah Pye were among those who exhibited our art along with photographers’ pieces like Pauline Fowler’s (right). Pauline’s deep and beautiful animal photographs, which looked like paintings were my personal favorites out of the entire Untitled Artists Fair!

Come say “hello” in Chelsea during Diamond Jubilee weekend!

My parents up from Plymouth, visiting me around my birthday time, after checking out Chelsea Old Town Hall where I’ll be exhibiting my art June 1st through 3rd, crossed the street to Chelsea Farmers Market. Here I am with my Dad. If you’re in London for the Jubilee weekend, then I’d love to have you stop by King’s Road and visit too!
