National recognition for talented artist

Mon, 26 Nov 2018

An outstanding oil panting from a former Monmouth student has been selected for inclusion in two prestigious national exhibitions in London next summer.

Robert Bowman’s Wilf will appear in a Royal Over-Seas League (ROSL) exhibition from Friday 26th April to Sunday 19th June in St James and in the Royal Society of British Artists’ (RBA) annual exhibition at the Mall Galleries on Thursday 4th July to Sunday 14th July.

Robert took his A levels at Monmouth School for Boys last summer.

His painting was submitted by the local Arts Society for the RBA’s consideration and was among 36 societies and 247 works from schools which had been put forward.
