The Ramsgate Art Show, AKA Harry Pye’s R.A. Show, is at The Front Room Gallery opening on Friday 20th August.
Harry Pye has previously organised events at Tate Britain and Tate Modern and curated group shows for both Deptford X and Elefest. He has selected 3 types of artists for his R.A. show. The first group are artists who live or work in Ramsgate such as Helen Smith. The second group are artists like John Duffin who travelled to Ramsgate to make a new work, especially for the show. And the third and final group are artists like Humphrey Ocean who are associated with the Royal Academy. Pye’s aim by mixing up these artists and hanging their work in a salon-style is that he will end up with an art show that has something for everyone.
Featured Artists; Felicity Allen, Sir Peter Blake, Gordon Beswick, Elizabeth Cake, Russell Chater, Ben Dickson, John Duffin, Christian Furr, Lisa Hawkins, Sadie Hennessy, Gary Hume, Corin Johnson, Jock McFadyen, Hugh Mendes, Humphrey Ocean, Carson Parkin-Fairley, Julia Rogers, Bob & Roberta Smith, Helen Smith, Owen Thomas, Hazel Thomson, Twinkle Troughton, Jessica Voorsanger, Julian Wakeling, and Leonie Woods.
