Art Exhibition 2017

Art Exhibition

Spring is nearly here which means The Friends of Holland Park Annual Art Exhibition is just around the corner.

As well as an outstanding exhibition of paintings, sculptures, cards and craft items, the work of one particular artist is also featured. This year our Feature Artist is Olivia Chalmers, a botanical artist and long-term Friend and exhibitor. Olivia studied at the Harrow School of Art, discovering botanical art after taking classes at the Royal Botanical Gardens in Kew under the renowned Annie Farrar. Olivia’s work is always popular with visitors to the exhibition and her work looks especially fine in the Orangery.

Could all artists please ensure that their Exhibit Details Forms are with me by Friday, 10 March, and please indicate which Private View, Friday night or Saturday morning, you would like tickets for, otherwise you will receive none.

We hope you will support The Friends of Holland Park by visiting our exhibition. We are hoping for more red dots this year. Look forward to seeing you there!
