Twice I’ve been shortlisted for the Royal Ulster Academy’s annual exhibition but finally I’ve had a painting accepted! ‘Leap’, 2019  will be part of this much respected exhibition now in it’s 139th year. Sometimes when I’m reapplying for shows year to year without being accepted can be really frustrating but I guess this shows you just have to keep trying, it’s all about timing, right? Let’s hope Covid-19 restrictions will allow me to go and actually view the exhibition!

The exhibition runs 16th October 2020 to 3rd January 2021 (please check Ulster Museum’s opening hours as times are subject to change)
