The Ramsgate Art Show, AKA Harry Pye’s RA Show, is at the Front Room Gallery opening on Friday August 20.
Harry Pye has hosted events at Tate Britain and Tate Modern in the past and has held group shows for Deptford X and Elefest. He selected 3 types of artists for his RA show. The first group is made up of artists who live or work in Ramsgate like Helen Smith. The second group is made up of artists like John Duffin who traveled to Ramsgate to create new work, especially for the show. And the third and final group are artists like Humphrey Ocean who are associated with the Royal Academy. Pye’s goal in mixing these artists together and hanging their work in a salon style is that he will end up with an art exhibit that has something for everyone.
