Anchors Aweigh at Artists of the River Pageant Private View

Navigate your way to the top of a Victorian tower in Battersea Park by September 15th and you’ll find my “Diamond Jubilee” art on display.

You’ll also discover a table full of teapots, crockery and bottles which pay homage to the Queen’s flotilla from the Turner’s House Artist in Residence, with whom I got to speak (below). So why not get underway to the Pump House Gallery for this Thames Festival free art exhibit, or if you’re high and dry see what was in the offing by way of my video from the Private View which was opened by Lord Salisbury!

London Mayor’s Thames celebration overflows throughout September

My drawing of the Queen on her barge will be one tiny part of a river-wide, ten-day celebration of the Thames, in London this September, which includes races, markets, and even unique opportunities to “Get on the River,” yourself. And although it sounds like part of a Disney movie, there will actually be a live operatic concerto “sung” by ships and boats, including a little tug between Tower Bridge and London Bridge on Saturday the 14th.

My work will be exhibited in Battersea Park , which is right up against one of the Thames’ little beaches; with “over fifty works of art inspired by The Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant,” at the Pump House Gallery, London SW11, each day from Wednesday the 4th to Sunday September 15th 2013, between 11.00am to 5.00pm.
