TempestTost Goes to Shanghai

I am very pleased to announce my participation in the Shanghai Zhujiajiao International Watercolour Biennial Exhibition.

Dear David,

We are pleased to inform you that your painting 'Tempest Tost' has been selected for 2010 Shanghai Zhujiajiao International Watercolour Biennial Exhibition. Your painting will be on display in Quanhua Watercolour Art Gallery form 15th April to 31st October 2010.

The opening ceremony is on 15th April, you are welcome to join us for celebration.

We will send you a book with all works on show at the 2010 Biennial.

Thank you.

Kind regards,
Shanghai Zhujiajiao International Watercolour Biennial Exhibition


This event is organized as part of the China World Expo 2010. Apparently, only 300 watercolourists from thousands of candidates have been chosen by a jury of international artists and art experts. More than 25 millions visitors are expected for this exhibition. It will take place from 15th April until 31rst October 2010, at the Quanhua Watercolour Art Gallery, in the town of Zhujiajiao (Shanghai).

We won't be attending, sorry to say, but I'm sure my painting will enjoy being in Shanghai, where its creator was born, in 1948.

Many thanks to Nicholas Simmons, who's post on the exhibit and subsequent encouragement, led to my entry. Thanks, Nick!
