Plum Neasmith adorns the walls of the Royal Academy

The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition is always firmly in our calendar each year. It can be a mixed bag but it’s a great barometer for current trends and artist practices. And we’ve heard good things about this year’s show co-ordinated by Richard Wilson RA who describes it as “unpredictable, stimulating and startling”.

 

So we’re delighted that Modern ArtBuyer artist Plum Neasmith has had two paintings accepted into this year’s show. Both paintings have already sold and we have sold more of her work subsequently – recognition of her integrity and quality. We’ll be taking her work to Affordable Art Fairs later in the year, so look out for updates.

 

Our congratulations to Plum!

Striking a pose at Bath in Fashion

Bath in Fashion is always such a vibrant, fun week and we want to be part of that buzz. So to join the party, we’ve teamed up with and luxury business & holiday rentals company Bath Boutique Stays to mark Bath in Fashion 2016.

 

We love Bath Boutique Stays’ style – a chic home from home – so this creative collaboration seems like a perfect fit.

 

Artworks by Modern ArtBuyer artists Emma Cowlam and Maria Rivans will be exhibited in Bath Boutique Stays properties throughout April to mark the annual fashion event in Bath. These artists’ works have been selected for their strong sense of style and focus on fashion. Emma Cowlam, whose first collection was bought by the V&A, produces chic hand-stitched fashion illustrations while Maria Rivans’ Pin Up series, which was recently exhibited in a solo show at the Saatchi Gallery London, is clearly influenced by vintage style and striking millinery.

 

For more information on how you can stay in one of Bath Boutique Properties’ apartments, just click here.

 

We hope to see you there!

Art prize jury service!

I’m honoured to have been invited onto the jury panel for the inaugural Camberwell Open Art Prize 2015, as part of the Camberwell Arts Festival.

 

The Camberwell Open is a new art exhibition aiming to present a snapshot of creative practice from artists based in, or associated with Camberwell, London. The standard of entries was very high, giving us a tough choice, but we selected three artworks that demonstrated exceptional talent and integrity. The work across the entire exhibition is incredibly diverse giving a real insight into creative practice in south London today.

 

The exhibition takes place from 6th June to 28th June at Fusion Lifestyle, Artichoke Place, London SE5, so do head over and see it. More information can be found here: http://thecamberwellopen.org
