An exhibition has been launched at London’s Waterloo railway station by Network Rail with the winners of the ‘Wish I was There’ Competition.
You may recall back in April we wrote about the competition which was setup asking art students to create art about placed they had missed visiting during the pandemic.
Pieces were submitted from around the country, with almost 270 entries of places around the UK including St Michael’s Mount (Cornwall), Lyme Regis (Dorset), Llandudno Promenade (Wales), Glenfinnan Viaduct (Scotland) and Bridlington (Yorkshire).
Entries were judged by a panel that included artist Jacqueline Colley, who teaches at the Victoria and Albert Museum.

I thank all the artists who have taken the time to submit their work that has paid homage to the places that they have missed travelling to.
“The railway has a long history of creating works of art to promote the destinations that people can travel to by train, and the art submitted completely and utterly reflects that. This art will become a part of history, documenting what has been an unprecedented time for all of us.”
