The Royal Society of Marine Painters Annual Open Exhibition
Mall Galleries, London
5-14th October, 2017
The Private View of the RSMA at the Mall Galleries in London proved to be as eclectic and wonderful as last years’ exhibition. This time I was delighted to have two paintings selected and was taken with the continued warmth and friendliness of the atmosphere which I’m beginning to recognise as a common theme. This, I imagine, is partly due to the infectious enthusiasm and generosity of spirit so evident in the approach of President, Elizabeth Smith. After mentioning that this had been a record year for submissions,she then positively encouraged new exhibitors to consider membership of this lovely Society of painters. A very tempting idea given the environmental message which underpins many of the members’ works.
The Prize winners were a worthy lot with extremely high standard of works that won awards ,congratulations to them all. Gillian Roberts’ paintings were particularly mesmerising.
It really was a strong show with many paintings stopping me in my tracks to gaze and try to fathom how they had been achieved.
The reason I haven’t included loads of pics was due to my overwhelming self consciousness at my overzealous photographing of eveything as it was all of such high quality.
