Hampton School Art Technician, Mr Jeremy Blighton, has been selected to exhibit a piece of his artwork at the Royal Academy’s Summer Exhibition, an annual celebration of art and creativity.

The prestigious exhibition has run since 1769 and showcases art in all forms, from prints, painting, film and photography, to architectural works and sculpture by invited artists, Royal Academicians and emerging talent. It is the tenth time that Mr Blighton’s work has been shown at the world’s oldest open-submission exhibition.

The theme of this year’s exhibition is Climate in all its manifestations, and there are over 1,000 works on display. Mr Blighton’s piece of work, entitled Battersea – A Covering of Snow, is a linocut inspired by the view of the rooftops over Battersea and how they’re one of the few sights in the local area that have remained unchanged over the years. The selection of prints in the room where Mr Blighton’s work is on display were selected by Royal Academician and contemporary artist Grayson Perry.

Mr Blighton has also had two pieces of his art selected for the archives of the School of Art Museum at the University of Aberystwyth.

Congratulations to Mr Blighton on his recent achievements.
