Nightmares and Dreamscapes
You are warmly invited to the Private View for Archie Franks’ first exhibition at the Mount House gallery on Friday 18th September from 7pm until9 pm.
Archie studied at City & Guilds of London Art School in 2009, where he obtained a 1st Class degree and following this, at the Royal Academy Schools, graduating in 2012.
Since then he has exhibited widely, both nationally and internationally, including the prestigious ‘New Contemporaries’ exhibitions at Spike Island and the ICA in 2013, as well as being the recipient of numerous substantial awards, including the Sainsbury Scholarship in Painting 2013, which enabled him to spend a year working at the British School at Rome.
Archie has also recently been selected for the Jerwood Painting Fellowship 2016; an award which includes professional support by artist Jane Harris. The year culminates in a touring show and opens at Jerwood Space in May 2016.
