Call For Art

Here are two interesting items from the Dulwich Picture Gallery in London. Firstly, on 1 July the Gallery opens An Impossible Bouquet: Four Masterpieces by Jan van Huysum, the most revered Dutch still-life painter of the 18th century. His bouquets were "impossible" because they included flowers that bloom at different times of the year. It took him a year or two to include all the flowers he wanted to paint in a picture. Shown is a detail from his Vase with Flowers (c.1715). CLICK to see more.

Secondly, In celebration of their 60th Anniversary, the Friends of Dulwich Picture Gallery are calling for entries to be included in a special selling exhibition at this world famous gallery in the autumn. Enter your work no later than 31 July CLICK for an entry form.
