Young Artists Shine At This Year's Show

One of the exciting parts of the ROI Annual Exhibition is the section devoted to young artists under 35 sponsored by Winsor and Newton. This year there was an extraordinarily high standard and for a wonderfully insightful review of the young artists and their work please have a look at the blog of Adebanji Alade  who himself was recently a star of that section. Adebanji is now a provisional member of the ROI and his review of this years's young artists is well worth reading:  Adebanji Aalade Blog

Adebanji also has a a one man exhibition of his own currently running in Bath at The Bath Gallery, 6 Bridge Street Bath BA2 4AS.  It's an exhibition with a difference as Adebanji - perhaps the most energetic plein air painter in Britain  -  has started a project  to paint 500  -  yes 500  - paintings of Bath in a year. This exhibition which runs throughout December is the first 211 paintings.
They really are a facinating record of one artist's  take on a city. He was painting in all weathers and even at night.  Do do and see for yourself. Here are some other images from the exhibition.

Adebanji also has new DVD out from Town House Films
Here's a taster.
