On June 7th I was lucky enough to join a small group of Ambassadors invited to a preview of the Royal Academy’s Summer Exhibition. We were shown round by Norman Ackroyd RA, who curated two of the rooms in the Exhibition. To my joy the vase David Mach created for the December cover of Diplomat was sitting in prime position in the gallery. Also on the wall was another of David’s masterpieces.

The Exhibition, the world’s largest open-submission exhibition  has over 10,000 entries with 1,000 chosen to display their work. Walking round the show I saw a few other artists I have commissioned including Tobias Till, Gordon Cheung, Quentin Blake and David Oslan.
