Congratulations Leslie Watts!

Congratulations to Leslie Watts. Leslie's portrait of Pamela Newel Sellers was selected for inclusion in The BP Portrait Award 2013 Exhibition at The National Portrait Gallery in London, UK. The exhibition will be on display at The National Portrait Gallery in London, England from June 20th to September 15th, 2013. It will then go on tour and be at the Aberdeen Art Gallery from November 2013 to February 2014 and the Wolverhampton Art Gallery from March 2014 to June 2014. This year there were a total of 1,969 entries of which 55 were selected for exhibition. Leslie is the only Canadian out of the fifteen countries represented in the exhibition.  Last year more than 255,000 people saw the exhibition in London.

We presently have five portraits by Leslie on view and for sale at Village Studios and they will be included in her opening and show April 27th to May 10th.* The portrait of Pamela Newel Sellers is done in Egg Tempera on Panel, as are the portraits in the store.  Please contact the store for any inquiries.
