Exhibition at Nunhead Cemetry for Open House Weekend - Plus some other news

This weekend I will be exhibiting three new paintings for the first time at the restored Anglican chapel in Nunhead Cemetary in Brockley, South London.

Diamond Decades is an exhibition celebrating the Queens Jubilee, curated by Jolanta Jagiello.  There are 16 artists involved: Jill Rock, Sally Buchanan, Lorenzo Belenguer, Mike Hoath, Jolanta Jagiello, Elisabetta Chojak-Mysko, Jo Nicholson Smith, Twinkle Troughton, Ana Moradian, Anna Whyatt, Will Parker, Derek Miles, Ahmed Faroqui, Abilene and Mary Pritchard.

'Nunhead is a magnificent Victorian cemetry with gothic chapel and ruined lodge.  One of London's Wildest and most overgrown cemetries, a square mile of inner city forest, unique in London - 50 acres of wilderness complete with bats, owls, foxes and squirrels.'

Open House London
