Royal Academy Summer Show 2018

Ooh - I've just delivered two etchings to the Royal Academy in London for round 2 of judging.   Will they get through round 2?   I think about 11,500 were eliminated in Round 1.... I won't know until 26 May...

Royal Birmingham Society of Artists Prize Exhibition - on now and until 23 June 2018

The RBSA Prize exhibition is now on and I have two etchings which were selected by ZoĆ« Lippett, Exhibitions and Artists’ Projects Curator at The New Art Gallery Walsall.  They are both social comments on homelessness.

Linda Nevill ARBSA- I have been elected as an associate member of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists

My 6 candidature landscape etchings.

I am delighted to have been elected as an associate member of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists.   

Last November my proposer and seconder signed my application form, I outlined my art qualifications and experience and the RBSA juried exhibitions that I had been selected for in the last few years.  The RBSA Council approved my application.   Then in April I submitted my 6 pieces of work and an artist's statement which were hung for a week in the gallery. During the course of the week the RBSA members and associates viewed all the new candidates' work and voted as to whether they should be accepted or not.   To be accepted it is necessary to obtain 50% of the vote plus 1.  

They voted me in!

Being an associate extends my exhibiting possibilities and it is wonderful to be part of this prestigious association.
