‘Out of Thin Air’.
When artists are together they often inspire each other to greater endeavour and ideas get bounced around often leading to interesting developments in their work. I personally enjoy travelling with other artists working companionably with a common purpose. I hope when you visit the exhibition you will appreciate our achievement often competing with hostile conditions when waiting.
Part of our reason for going was to raise funds for Community Action Nepal (CAN) to help Sherpa communities in isolated regions of Nepal and it is one of the most successful charities in this field. CAN was started by the late Doug Scott, who sadly died in December last year, and the exhibition is now partly celebrating his dedicated work for the people of Nepal. A third of picture sales will be donated and to a much smaller charity, I am involved with.
After being postponed from 2020 ‘Out of Thin Air’, an exhibition of paintings of the Himalayas will be held at the Royal Geographical Society from Monday 13th September to Wednesday 22nd September 10am-5pm daily.
The launch of Jack Hextall’s documentary film of the expedition will be shown at an evening reception in aid of Community Action Nepal on the evening of Tuesday 14th September. Details can be seen in the following invitation.
