The ‘Karlskirche Stairway to Heaven’ has been awarded Highly Commended at the Grosvenor Museums 11th Open Art Exhibition in Chester. I’m particularly honoured because Peter Boughton FSA, Keeper of Art, has informed me that the Grosvenor has decided to purchase the painting for their permanent collection. I’m so pleased that ‘Karlskirche’ has found such an appreciative home.


You can see ‘Karlskirche Stairway to Heaven’ and an excellent selection of art at the Grosvenor Museum until 17th June 2015, 27, Grosvenor Street, Chester, CH1 2DD.
