Two latest portraits by renowned local artist Svetlana Cameron are going on public display at the famous Bankside Gallery in London from 6 to 18 June. Both artworks are privately commissioned portraits of children executed in Svetlana’s award-winning conte & pastel technique which brought her international success and received accolades in competitions in the UK, France, Russia and USA.
The exhibition will feature works by selected members of the Society of Graphic Fine Art – the only national society in the UK dedicated exclusively to drawing. Founded in 1919, the Society promotes fine drawing skills in both traditional and contemporary media. Today it has more than 130 elected members across Britain, professional artists from all areas of the art world who work in all drawing and printmaking media.
“I am delighted to have an opportunity to show my works to a wide audience at such a prestigious London venue, right next door to Tate Modern. This is the second time I have been invited to exhibit at the Bankside Biennial alongside some of Britain’s finest graphic artists. I made my debut appearance in 2015 with the artwork titled ‘Manx Folk Dancer’ which was very well received and subsequently sold to a private collector”.
Opened by Her Majesty the Queen in 1980, Bankside is the Gallery of the Royal Watercolour Society (RWS), and the Royal Society of Painter‑Printmakers (RE). It is situated in central London on the south bank of the River Thames, just across the Millennium Bridge from St Paul’s Cathedral and the City of London.
Exhibition dates: 6 – 18 June
Address: Bankside Gallery, Thames Riverside, 48 Hopton Street, London. SE1 9JH
