Finally! It's official. I can share the news, though I was asked not to make a big deal of it. So here is me not making a big deal of it.
2667 artists from 88 countries entered the 2018 BP Portraits Award Competition this year. From these entries it was narrowed down to 215.  From the 215 (8%) to 48 (1.8%)  to 4.  My daughter's work was one of the 48 selected. What does this mean? Her painting, along with the other 47 selected entrants, will be exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery in England  from June 14-September 23, then the exhibition will travel to Wolverhampton Art Gallery October 13 to December 2, the Scottish National Portrait Gallery in Edinburgh from December 2018 to March 2019 and Cartwright Hall, Bradford from March till June 2019.
If you'd like to learn more about the entrants, here is the link .
