‘One of my works prepared for the Chelsea Art Society exhibition. “Ukrainian Blue” is an oil painting. This work is about our dream of peace in Ukraine and all over the world. The fragment shows imitation of the Ukrainian embroidery, using colourful beads, that were glued to the canvas’. Olga Brown

This summer, Ukrainian-born painter Olga Brown’s will have her works displayed at the Chelsea Art Society’s annual Open Art Exhibition. On display there will be her cityscapes of London and Lviv, as well as recently created “Ukrainian Blue” (on the picture above).
Alongside the exhibition the Society announces a new prize – The Julian Barrow Prize for a Painting , worth £500, will be awarded on the theme of travel. Olga’s Lviv cityscape is in competiotion for this prize. We wish her luck!
The Society’s annual Open Art Exhibition in Chelsea is firmly established in the early summer, in its home at Chelsea Old Town Hall, where it has been for more than ten years. Between 500 and 600 paintings and sculptures are shown – selected from more than twice that number, attracting not just established artists but younger ones producing more innovative work.
The majority may be professional artists but as an open exhibition, there are also works of above average quality by many non-professionals. The huge variety and the high standard of work is reflected in the number of buyers and its prominent position in the Kings Road attracts visitors from all over the world.
