‘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) started by Doug Scott to help Sherpa communities in isolated regions of Nepal and it is one of the most successful charities in this field. A third of picture sales will be donated and to a much smaller charity, I am involved with.
‘Out of Thin Air’, an exhibition of paintings of the Himalayas will be held at the Royal Geographical Society from Monday 20th April until Sunday 26th April 2020.
Update: Due to Covid-19 this exhibition has been postponed to April 2021.
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 21st April. Details can be seen in the following invitation.
