The RUA Annual Exhibition is one of the most eagerly
anticipated exhibitions in the Northern Irish cultural calendar. The Exhibition provides a platform for artists to showcase their artwork in the fabulous galleries at the Ulster Museum, Belfast.

Colin’s painting “Rockpool” was accepted at this year’s show and he is pictured here in front of his painting at the President’s viewing with Kim Mawhinney, Senior Curator of Art at the Ulster Museum. Attending the viewing gave Colin the opportunity to meet with other artists whose works were also on show.  It was an an added bonus that one of the Academy’s clients purchased Rockpool and Ian Breakwater, the owner of Gallery 1608 invited Colin to exhibit at his gallery in Bushmills.
