The Varnishing Day

The Varnishing Day of the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2016

it’s a day to celebrate the artists in the show. Before visiting the show, the artists gather in the courtyard, form a procession down Piccadilly led by a steel band, then attend an artists’ blessing at St. James’s church. 

I found my 2 drawings hanged in different rooms. The Bigger piece was in room 6, Richard Wilson's selection and other small one in room 1, Bill Jacklin's selection. 

After the reception at the gallery, I was invited to have a drink with Mr Fumiaki Aono who was invited to present his work for the show and whose work happen to be in the same room as mine! So I went in to the Academician's Room! 

It was a long day but all together, it was a great fun & experience.
