OCTOBER 15TH 6-9 PM - JOIN ME IN LONDON FOR THE YOUNG MASTERS ART PRIZE 2014!

This Wednesday I am part of a wonderful competition - one of 24 artists (painters, photographers and installation artists) shortlisted for the Young Masters Prize 2014 with a star studded jury. Our work will be hanging next to work created more than 200 years ago. 

The Event is October 15th from  6-9 PM
SPHINX GALLERY: 125 Kensington Church Street, 
London, W8 7LP

Please RSVP here: celia@thecynthiacorbettgallery.com. I will be a few more days in London and if you would like to meet and/or get a tour outside these hours I will be happy to share and break bread and make merry! I am bringing time to enjoy this moment for sure!

Within this show there is an Affordable Art Room where I will be putting a Rosa Parks print embellished with gold leaf. I recently sold the original Rosa Parks to the George Washington Carver Museum in Dothan, Alabama so the print is the next best thing!
