Selected Exhibitions
 
     
 

Participation in exhibitions - a selection

Peter Ford has been exhibiting his work from 1975 to the present time in the UK and abroad..

International successes have been in Taiwan, China, Japan, Russia, USA and particularly in Poland. In recent years he has received major prizes in Warsaw and Krakow.. In the UK, he exhibits regularly at Bankside Gallery, London, as a member of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers and, in Bristol, at the Royal West of England Academy.

Listed here is a selection of exhibitions in which Peter Ford’s work has been displayed. In some cases he was invited to take part but for many exhibitions his work was selected from an open submission. This means that any artist can enter by paying the fee and observing the regulations. Such exhibitions take place in Britain and many other parts of the world. It is not difficult to send works on paper through the international postal system. (His first success with an open exhibition was inclusion in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, (London) 1975. His first international success was in the New York Miniature Print Exhibition, in 1976.)
