Nottingham Society of Artists has launched their first ever annual selected Showcase exhibition at their Friar Lane gallery.
"The Showcase 2015 is a first for the Society in that we invited a well-known artist, Andrew Macara, a member of The New English Art Club, to personally select the work to be shown," says Chairman of the Society, Alan Gardner, "Andrew's choice of work includes some bigger and bolder work and a move away from some of the more traditional subject matters which we normally feature. It makes for a very refreshing exhibition featuring some of the Society's most accomplished artists."
Nottingham law firm Fraser Brown is also supporting the Society by sponsoring the First Prize of £200. The winner, announced on Friday night was "Night, Rain, King's Cross", by Rosemary Wels. Sponsoring the second prize was local printer John E Wright & Co. who chose "Iron Plant" by David Mallard.
You can visit the new Showcase 2015 exhibition and vote for your favourite work (the winner will receive a Public Choice Prize also sponsored by Fraser Brown,) at the Nottingham Society of Artists Gallery at 73 Friar Lane from now until Sunday 28th June, opening times are 10am - 4:30pm daily.
Andrew Macara is from Derbyshire and studied contemporary modern British Art for a short period with Leonard Fuller at the St Ives School but considers himself to be predominantly a self-taught artist. He was elected in 1984 to the New English Art Club. His work is often seen in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.
