Landscape Artist of the Year 2019 - Exhibition

Today, I finally visited the Landscape Artist of the Year 2019 Exhibition at the Clarendon Fine Art Gallery in Dover Street in London - and learned about aspects of the exhibition which are very beneficial for those who exhibit

It was impressive - particularly the exhibit of artwork by the winner and Landscape Artist of the Year - Fujiko Rose. (Facebook)

Artwork by Fujiko Rose

The exhibition includes artwork by semi-finalists and finalists. Of these artists, three artists have sold out and others have sold most of their work. More of this below.

I've uploaded images of the exhibition to an album on my Making A Mark Facebook Page - which anybody can see. Some of the images can also be seen below.

Things I noticed at the Exhibition


Llanthony Priory by Fujiko Rose

Fujiko Rose and Cathy Reddy (Facebook) both SOLD OUT. Both work in monochrome on paper - using ink and linocuts respectively.  Interesting! Who would have predicted that

James Murch's submission entry to the competition

Of the painters the most successful artist in percentage terms is James Murch who also sold ALL his work as well.

Patsy Moore and Sue England also sold some but not all their five artworks.

Commissions are, to my mind, what decides who wins the title and all the commissions were large and had a lot of impact - but Fujiko Rose's commission (priced at £5,000) was both stunning - and has sold!

What was also fascinating about her work was the paper she was working on - which was really interesting and looked handmade. I think it might be printmaking paper.

Things I learned at the Exhibition


Paintings by Sue England and Patsy Moore
The Clarendon Fine Art Gallery is a partner of Sky Arts. They
  • do a lot of the marketing and generate a respectable level of visitors - and buyers - to the exhibition
  • frame the artwork for the artists
  • do NOT take any commission for sales - which is a major benefit to anybody who makes it to the exhibition. 

Sales by Fujiko Rose totalled £10,500!  This is on top of the £10,000 commission of Venice for RIBA - so that a very good result for entering an art competition.
There will be no tour of the exhibition around the UK - so the exhibition is now finished.
