"Participating in Spring Awakening was a thoroughly encouraging and enjoyable experience for me. Kelly is phenomenal to work with. I am amazed by her ability to work on behalf of so many artists concurrently. She was always quick to update anything to fit my preferences and we engaged in meaningful and candid exchanges about how to best present myself and my work. She did an outstanding job of publishing our work to social media and the virtual exhibition was a wonderful presentation format. The choice of artists was eclectic, unique and top notch. I highly recommend any artist to submit to LPC and to seek a chance to work with Kelly and this outstanding arts platform."

"It was such a pleasure to be a part of the London Paint Club Spring Awakening Exhibition. Through discovering LPC on instagram and seeing the wonderful, inspiring paintings posted on your page, by taking part in the exhibition I felt part of a bigger artistic community and discovered some amazing artists and their work. I also gained a broader platform for my work and connected and interacted with fellow artists involved in the show."

"I was excited to see London Paint Club in my Instagram feed and find their great website with an exhibition archive, listings, directory and Gallery viewing rooms. My experience of submitting work for the ‘Open Call’ and then working with them to finalize my submission was an interesting and enjoyable one. The resulting exhibition was diverse and painters from all over the planet were involved. If you're passionate about painting, here is your opportunity to be part of something good and connect with other Artists and Collectors from around the world."
