Dulwich Picture Gallery invites you to enter an online art competition based on the current exhibition Salvator Rosa.

Salvator Rosa (1615-1673) was one of the boldest and most powerfully inventive artists of 17th-century Italy. He was adopted as a hero by painters of the Romantic movement in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. He was mainly a painter of landscapes, but the range of his subject matter was unusually wide and included portraits, scenes of witchcraft and allegories.

A group of the works in Dulwich Picture Gallery’s current Salvator Rosa exhibition transport the viewer into a mysterious world of monstrous mythical creatures, bandits and magic. Drawing from Salvator Rosa’s work and a famous myth, legend or fantasy novel depict your own allegorical scene.

Your entry and a brief sentence about you (if you like) will be published on Dulwich OnView and the Friends of Dulwich Picture Gallery’s Flickr group The Rosa Competition.

  • Any flat medium – painting, drawing, mixed media, photos etc.
  • All entrants to be digital images of original works
  • Categories: under 18, 18 and over (more…)

The social in the crypt


Networking is a good idea. Doing it over a delicious dinner is an even better idea. On a Wednesday evening in September, 20 or so SLWA members gathered in the Crypt of St Peter’s in Camberwell where we were treated to a Caribbean meal and a selection of wines. It was a relaxed way to spark ideas and make connections.

For my £15 donation, I enjoyed jerk chicken (swapping one of my chicken wings for a veggie spring roll from Jenny’s plate); fish with plantain and rice, and a slice of coconut cake to finish. The wine was brought by the diners and since I was keen to expand my range, I tasted, let’s say, a few of them.

The kitchen in the crypt of this historic church — one of only three designed by Sir John Soane — is not usually open in the evenings, so it made the event even more special. We had the place to ourselves, although a few visitors did come and go. ‘Are you the male stripper?’ was a cheeky question posed by one member to a chap who passed through, very quickly.

Studio Space

Hello fellow SLWA members I am passing on information regarding an opportunity to apply for a very cheap studio space at the Lewisham ARthouse in Lewisham Way, South East London. The Lewisham ARthouse, where I have my studio , is an artist’s cooperative and the waiting time for a space has previously been 5 years or more. We recently decided change the selection procedure and now studio’s will be allocated on the strength of the application and an interview. The space available is light and spacious, although the arthouse is an old building (formally a Carniege Library) and can get cold in winter. The deadline for application is 9th October. All details for application, together with further information about the ARthouse can be found on http://www.lewishamarthouse.co.uk. You are very welcome to pass the information on to anyone who you think might be interested

Come see us at the open studios with the ARthouse’s involvement in this year’s Deptford X festival. I am showing an installation as well as paintings and this year is particularly exciting as Mark Titchner will be using the front of the building to create a large scale installation. Natasha Rosling will be showing her installation ‘Ruffle’ in the Gallery. Do come along and join us – it would also be a good opportunity to check out the studio space.

Best wishes, Sara Willett
