The Wapping Group of Artists - Derek Daniells is elected a full member

Derek has recently been elected as a full member of the prestigious Wapping Group. one of the longest established societies of working artists in the country.

The Wapping Group was formally founded in 1946 and initially met to record the busy life of London's dockland. Since then, the range of locations has widened in response to the changes of The Thames – on any Wednesday between April and September members of the Group may now be found in any weather at a rendezvous anywhere from inland Henley and out to The Estuary. This companionable band of just 25 dedicated and capable painters maintains the original Group aims of fellowship and enthusiastic recording and interpretation of the River.
