Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2023
I am happy to say that I was in the Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy of Art in 2023 and my schnauzer wood engraving, Stanley was selected! He was in Room 7 curated by Eileen Cooper, catalogue number 890. He was very popular and selling very well as you can see when I witnessed the "red dot man" adding more dots....
It was a wonderful experience and I received lots of emails from adoring dog owners. and I met lots of lovely artists at the gallery. By the end of the exhibition I had sold 60 prints so I was very pleased with that. https://se.royalacademy.org.uk/2023/artworks/amanda-taylor/890
Since then I have received new dog wood engraving commissions so it looks like this is a successful new direction for me.
