Fenland artist Louise has work accepted for The Royal Academy’s summer exhibition
Local artist Louise Stebbing is one of just a handful selected for the prestigious summer exhibition at the Royal Academy, London, one of the biggest art events of the year.
The linocut Waiting for Spring started out in January when Louise went out drawing in the local orchard owned by Goodale’s.
At the time Louise said she had one thing in mind - to enter the summer exhibition at the Royal Academy.
Back in her studio she made a large linocut of the orchard and entered it for judging not knowing until May that it had been accepted.
Initially there were 12,000 entries and hanging in the exhibition are 1200 all hand picked by the committee.
