NICK John Rees, a well known local artist, was recently invited to a Private View of The Royal Cambrian Academy of Arts Open Exhibition in Conwy with two of his pieces of art on show.

Artists are invited to put forward up to two works of art for consideration and Nick was delighted to have both of his submissions accepted.

Prior to the death of Sir Kyffin Williams RA, Nick became friendly with this most celebrated Welsh artist and spent time watching him work in his studio on the Menai Straights. It was during a lunch that he and Nick enjoyed in Kyffin's local that he was encouraged to become involved in the RCA which became Nick's motivation to put forward his paintings.

In recent years Nick has sold his work all over the world and is proud to have them held in collections as far afield as Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and all over Europe too.
