It's Hot, Hot, Hot!!! - Summer Sizzles at the AGL

Forty London and area artists are featured in the annual summer exhibition and sale at Art Gallery of Lambeth.
The Summer Sizzler art exhibition includes work in all mediums including mixed media, textiles, photography, sculptures and traditional art forms, such as oils, acrylics and pastels.
The show was juried by Lambeth gallery curators, Vivian Tserotas and Brenda Colley, along with associate artist, Philip Schmidt, which means the works must meet a certain standard for inclusion in the show, which features more than 80 pieces of art.
Awards were presented at the opening reception, Friday June 21.  Honourable Mention awards went to both Susanne Ouimet, "Eye See You",  and Candy McManiman, "Screech Owl".  
The  Best in Show was a unanimous vote, and went to Becca Smith for her pastel, Scarlett.  Becca has been painting in pastel since she was 9 years old.  At the age of 12, she began winning  awards for her work at  local art shows and county fairs.  She has been doing commission work since, but not showing her work publicly.  Becca has plans to show more of her work in the future.

“It is the expressed hope of the Art Gallery of Lambeth that this show brings about increased awareness of fine art and introduces London artists to the community-at-large,” said Tserotas.
The Summer Sizzler provides a great opportunity for artists to exhibit and sell their work and also affords opportunity for the public to view a diverse array of exceptional artworks.
The show runs until July 27th.  Come and check it out!!
