Five pictures chosen for exhibition at 2013 Great North Art Show


Showcasing artwork in a fantastic venue

An annual event held at Ripon Cathedral the Great North Art Show is a fantastic exhibition that supports long standing and new artists to display their work.

As a new artist and one that had recently taken up painting, I was delighted to have five pictures selected to appear in the 2013 exhibition. The Cathedral is naturally open to the public for worship and visitors alike and my joy increased when, before the exhibition had officially opened, one of my pictures sold. Another followed.

Exhibiting for the first time, as this was for me, brings mixed feelings. Being selected was terrific. Seeing the work displayed out of my studio and in a gallery setting was marvellous. To sell work for the first time was the icing on the cake!
