A Private View – Portrait Painters Today

Last night’s opening of Portrait Painters Today was a fabulous start to this exhibition. The gallery was so busy that it took some time to be able to see the paintings clearly. St. Paul’s had hung the work beautifully, grouping the work of each artist together. Once the crowds had disappeared I whizzed round to take a few photos of the show which I post below.

It was lovely to see so many people attend the opening and to meet some new faces, thanks to everyone who came. It’s great to be showing alongside such a group of wonderful painters.

The exhibition now continues until 12th February, open Monday to Friday 10 – 6, weekends by appointment.
