Ian and "Dartmoor Oak"

Artists & Illustrators
Artists of the Year Exhibition

Ian was one of only fifty artists - and the only printmaker - shortlisted from over a thousand entries for the Artists & Illustrators Artist of the Year Award 2013. The shortlisted work, "Dartmoor Oak" (see above) was included in an exhibition at the prestigious Mall Galleries in London during January 2014.

The whole family piled up to London for the private view on a cold and rainy night in early January. It was a real treat to see all the shortlisted entries first hand, and an unexpected bonus when Ian was presented with his certificate!

The exhibition has now ended but you can still see all the shortlisted work on the Artists & Illustrators website at http://www.artistsandillustrators.co.uk/shortlist2013

The proud family!

Enjoying the exhibition
