The sea, and people’s differing responses to it, is the theme of the exhibition and the artists exhibiting are Annie Catford, Laura Froude, David Lay, Andy Maguire, Phyllis McDowell, Catherine Robinson, Mike Sanders, Dee Taylor, Steve Thompson and yours truly!

Alongside some truly beautiful paintings there will be browsers and greetings cards, all with a sea-relate theme.  So it should be a really great show with something for everyone.

Sea Edge Exhibition, Hythe – 20th-29th October 2017

I’m delighted to be a part of the forthcoming Sea Edge Exhibition to be held at the Tin Tabernacle, Portland Road, Hythe from the 20th-29th October, 10am-6pm.

The exhibition is being held as part of the Folkestone Triennial Arts Festival and this dynamic exhibition includes work by myself and a further 9 artists.

The exhibition is based around the theme of the sea and the artistic response to its physicality and the symbolic hold that the sea has on the human imagination.

Sennen Cove by Paul Apps. Oil en plein air. £450.

Lower Sands, Dymchurch by Paul Apps U.A. Oil. £650.

Although chiefly focussed on visual art, the Sea Edge exhibition also draws on poems and prose which examine man’s relationship with the sea, with each artist selecting texts that have a personal resonance or connection to their work in the show.

Artists exhibiting work include Annie Catford, Laura Froude, David Lay, Andy Maguire, Phyllis McDowell, Catherine Robinson, Mike Sanders, Dee Taylor and Steve Thompson.

It should be a really good exhibition so I hope you can make it!

DSWF Artist of the Year Finalist!

I’m really pleased to have made the finals of the David Shepherd Wildlife Fund Wildlife Artist of the Year with my painting ‘In the Shadows’!

In the Shadows by Paul Apps U.A., S.A.A.

I attended the preview night on Tuesday 27th at the Mall Galleries, London and it was amazing.  There was a real buzz in the gallery and the standard of art on show was stunning.

Myself and some of the other finalist at the DSWF preview evening

If you can do go and see the exhibition, it’s incredible and for a really worthwhile cause.  It was also great to catch up with many old friends and to make new ones!

It was great, too, to meet up again with David Shepherd himself.  He’s a wonderful ambassador for wildlife conservation and an inspiration to all wildlife artists.  I’m honoured to count him as a friend.

Myself with David Shepherd

Will keep you posted on the outcome of the finals – fingers crossed!

In the news…

I’m in the news! The Kentish Express (Romney Marsh) has a feature on my painting, In the Shadows, being shortlisted for the prestigious David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation’s (DWSF) Artist of the Year Award.

In the Shadows by Paul Apps U.A.

The article, by Rachel Wood, is on page 22 and explains all about the competition which will be judged on the 27th June at The Mall Galleries, London.

The feature details the background to the painting and how the wildlife of Africa inspires me.  It includes photo of the painting and even one of yours truly!

I’m keeping my fingers crossed as to the result but, regardless, I’m delighted to support the good work of the DWSF in supporting endangered African and Asian wildlife.

I’ll keep you all updated as to my progress in the competition!
