RBA Winter Newsletter 2021

The dark nights are setting in earlier now and there is a definite chill in the air most days, so let’s hope that there is not too much severe weather on the horizon for these winter months ahead.

It is good to know that there is some warming good news to share from some of our members:

In the rather late “Summer Show at the RA” is Jill Leman and [can you see the resemblance?] her brother, prizewinner David Winthrop

Cheryl Culver has one of her works on the cover of a book written by a psychotherapist which is described as:
“Opens up a neglected landscape for recognition and discussion”
The illustration seems to be a perfect fit!

Cheryl also has work in the Geedon Gallery 20th Anniversary Exhibition Part II and in the RBA exhibition ‘In Harmony’ at the M1 Gallery.

At the Geedon Gallery the 20th Anniversary Autumn Exhibition Part II is still online and features works from RBA artists including:

The RBA show at the Russell Gallery was very successful once again, achieving over £50,000 in sales and we look forward to having another RBA exhibition with them in 2023 – our bicentenary year. We are also looking forward to an RBA show with the M1 Gallery in November this year [more details to follow shortly] and a possible online exhibition for all FBA members with the Mall Galleries in the autumn too, so there is plenty to look forward to.
