Martin Taylor appearing on Sky Arts Landscape of the Year TV programme

One of Primrose Gallery’s favourite landscape artists, Martin Taylor is about to appear in the third series of 'Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year 2018'.

“I was selected from thousands of applicants to be one of the main artists in a heat in the third series,” he told us. “Along with the other seven artists were 50 'wildcard artists', one of whom had a chance of progressing it the show. Filming took place in the summer at Broadstairs in Kent.”

Landscape Artists of the Year is a competition with a prize of a commission for £10,000 to paint a National Trust property. The resulting work would be kept and exhibited by the National Trust.

Stephen Mangan took over presentation from the popular Frank Skinner along with Joan Bakewell. Make sure you look out for him on TV and the winning picture!
