Lots Road Group artists Sarah Jane Moon and @herojohnson to feature in two major UK annual exhibitions.
Sarah Jane Moon’s portrait of Nicole and Kai will be shown Royal Society of Portrait Painters show which opens at the Mall Galleries next week 16-26 September. Please book here if you intend to go, so the gallery is able to manage numbers.
Hero Johnson’s artwork will be in the Society of Women Artists annual exhibition. Usually held in the Mall Galleries, this year it will be online only from 22 September.
The Lots Road Group has been working behind the scenes during lockdown on an exhibition that will reflect the extraordinary times we are going through. If restrictions are lifted, we expect to stage the exhibition at Waterstones Gower Street’s art gallery from Monday 9 November 2020 to January 2021.
The exhibition, entitled ‘Beyond the door’ will show portraiture generated during confinement when our own front doors have had a heightened significance in their dual role as protection from harm and barrier to freedom. The theme allows exploration of both interior and exterior worlds and our subjects’ experiences during the pandemic. It will also nod towards the door as a symbolic portal through which we will enter a new, unfamiliar post viral world.
