Royal Academy. Summer Exhibition Illustrated 2015

Last night at the Private View of the Summer Exhibition, my daughter picked out works that if she had the money she would buy for herself and a few she would buy for me, as we left I suggested an affordable option, a look in the shop to see if there were cards of her favourites, I flicked through the ‘Summer Exhibition Illustrated 2015‘, “First published in the 1870’s the Summer Exhibition Illustrated presents the highlights of each year’s selection and is a fascinating barometer of changing tastes” ‘I’ll buy this for you if they’re in here’, to my delight I saw my etching Rapidly Scrawled Life is in the book above Cornelia Parker’s Stolen Thunder III.

RA Summer Exhibition Illustrated 2015 (catalogue)

This evening my daughter and I went to the RA Summer Exhibition private view, we should have gone yesterday evening but she had an exam today. Our first stop was to see my etching: Rapidly Scrawled Life, as we walked through the galleries she marked her favourites in the ‘List of Works’ catalogue and joked about which ones she would save up for and buy, some for herself some for me. On leaving we checked in the shop for postcards of the favourites, picking up the Illustrated Catalogue I flicked through to see if they were highlighted there.

And what did I find?

My own etching, Rapidly Scrawled Life, on the same page as the amazing Cornelia Parker’s ‘Stolen Thunder’ and the facing page to Prof. Ian Mckeever RA,  Eagduru Study. Very honoured
