Laurie Chetwood has had two works selected for this year’s Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition.  The two wall-hung architectural models are on display in the architecture gallery.

Held without interruption since 1769, the Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition showcases work in all media, including painting, sculpture, photography, printmaking, architecture and film, by emerging and established artists.   This year’s 250th anniversary exhibition is curated by Grayson Perry CBE RA and runs from 12th June to 19th August 2018.

Xiaowan Bay, China – Green City is a pen and ink drawing printed on layered acrylic.  It represents a conceptual masterplan for a new green city on the coast of the South China Sea, where seascape, streetscape and landscape are combined into a holistic community.

Based on the historic city in Beijing, the other model Forbidden City explores the relationship between public and private spaces in a fanciful way.
