Stroud art among Britain's best
EGYPTIAN artwork painted in Stroud will soon be hung alongside Britain's best in London. Work by artist Jackie Garner, pictured, whose Old Cider House Studio is in Randwick, has been selected from almost 700 entries to appear alongside paintings by some of Britain's leading watercolour artists.
The annual exhibition of the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours will be at the Mall Galleries near Trafalgar Square between March 30 and April 10.
Jackie said: "I'm delighted to have had two paintings accepted among such formidable competition. The paintings are from my latest project, depicting wildlife art of Ancient Egypt. Egypt's very much in the news but I hope my paintings will remind people of its incredibly rich cultural heritage."
