Two artists, Alice Robertson and Elizabeth McCarten, based at St Patricks Studios in Wapping, have work exhibited in the Sunday Times Watercolour Competition Exhibition in The Mall Galleries this week. Elizabeth McCarten won the Jackson's Young Artists prize for her painting in the competition.

Now in its 30th year, The Sunday Times Watercolour Competition is the largest and most prestigious prize for contemporary watercolour painting in the UK.

Whether it be through abstract or figurative, contemporary or traditional, the competition aims to celebrate and redefine the beauty and diversity of watercolour and water-based media.

2017 has been a busy year for Christian artists. Work by Alice Robertson and many others has been featuring in a major exhibition of contemporary Christian art which opened at the Hurtado Centre in the Spring. It then moved to Farm Street and is now at the Servite Church on the Fulham Road until mid October.

Also in October, Catholic musician Justin Harmer is organising the St Michaels Arts Festival at an Anglican Church in Stockwell where he is music director. The festival includes many events including an art exhibition. Mike Quirke and Alice Robertson are two of the exhibitors. The festival includes a performance by Sarah de Nordwall.

St Michaels Arts Festival runs from 4th - 15th October.
