Richard wins coveted place at Piccadilly art display
A CHATTERIS artist has been selected from hundreds of entries to have his work represented at a leading London exhibition.
Richard Savage’s work was picked from more than 1,000 entries to be featured at the 2012 Cork Street Open Exhibition in Piccadilly.
The event, which opened on August 23 and finishes on Friday (August 31) is designed to showcase emerging and established artists from around the world to gain exposure and sell their work while benefiting a chosen charity - and Mr Savage is just one of 165 artists to enjoy a showing.
It is the second time his work has been used at the Cork Street exhibition and his work has been sold across the world.
“To be included once was great, to do it a second time is fantastic,” Mr Savage said. “I am thrilled to see my work on the wall of such a prestigious London gallery.”
