Emma Watson at the Royal Academy of Arts' Summer Exhibition with her dad [June, 19]

About the exhibition:
The Summer Exhibition attracts a high volume of entrants annually with over 11,000 entries received this year. Royal Academician Tess Jaray is the co-ordinator for Summer Exhibition 2012.

The exhibition begins in the Wohl Central Hall, which this year pays homage to Matisse’s The Red Studio. The vibrant gallery provide a backdrop to a selection of paintings whose main concern is colour. Gallery III, the grandest space in Burlington House, is curated by Tess Jaray RA. Containing a large quantity of smaller paintings, the gallery demonstrates that work of a more modest scale can be as powerful as larger work. As a former teacher at the Slade School of Art, Jaray is mindful of providing a forum for established and younger artists to show their work to the public.

Chris Wilkinson RA and Eva Jiricna RA have curated the architecture gallery of the Summer Exhibition. Their curatorial direction seeks to blur the boundaries between architecture and the fine arts.

Further highlights include a video room dedicated to the work of Jayne Parker and a gallery of Scottish and Irish artists arranged by Barbara Rae RA. Other artists exhibiting this year include Michael Craig-Martin RA, Michael Landy RA, Tracey Emin RA, Ken Howard RA, Anselm Kiefer Hon RA, Raqib Shaw, Calum Innes and Keith Coventry.

Busted lol. It's nice that she is able to spend time with her family.

Miez said...

Her dad looks like David Yates in this pic :D

coslopus said...

I could imagine the person taking the photo was behind Emma constantly whispering her name until she turned around.

I would die if she caught me. I'd run away in fright.

I didn't know Yates and her dad looked so much alike.

This was taken today? But her hair looks so long?

Yes, today.

Emma's dad is a boss. She's not the only one with wealth in her family.

Alex said...

It's the first time I see her dad )

Alex said...

Yeah, I also thought it's Yates. )

Her father is one of the top communcations lawyers in the UK. Very high profile.

Anonymous said...

Tracey Emin is Emma's favorite artist. And yes, her dad really looks like David Yates.

Awn! *-*

...I really wish she'd stop pulling her hair back like that now. It's grown enough that she can make a ponytail and clip back the rest.
It was cute when the hair was shorter, now it just looks awful

CutiePie32 said...

So what's up Emma watson fans?how come it's been so silent & not one single post for 2 days now?

Anonymous said...

Well, I guess what can be said about this pic is said.

Anna said...

Hey Cutie-pie, did you see that they are looking for extra's for one of Emma's movies? Grabbel your chance! And let us know when you got in. :)

CutiePie32 said...

Yes i did see that a few days ago.I would love to e an xtra but i have no clue where to startDoubt i'd even get a chane to talk to her as an extra.But i will meet her,or at least ,i'll never give up until i pass away.

Anonymous said...

She looks like Kristen Stewart there!

lol i would also run away in fright if she caught me taking a picture

CutiePie32 said...

i would NEVER take a picture unless she wanted me to take one w/ her.Other than that,i have no interest in taking a picture.i would rather walk by her and stare her down until she looked my way.She would probabley have that serious face look and i would probabley just look away and be very scared.i'm such a pussy

Anna said...

I think she will be more scared when you keep staring than taking her picture. Although both aren't nice to her. Sometimes i hate myself for looking at her photos. It must be afwul to be famous like that.

It's swell to see Emma follow what she truly loves- the arts. I just don't understand why she didn't go to OXford for 3 years and get a BA in English Lit and History and then go to RADA of acting and directing if film is her choice of career. It seems to me she is just wasting time with her history major- 4yrs at Brown when she could have already finished at Oxford.

Anonymous said...

Got a point since she doesn't want to be a historian.Even though being well-rounded is important.She just needs to finish something. Ah well-lookin forward to Perks, Bling and Noah.

Anonymous said...

I believe she wanted the additional liberal arts components that Brown offered, since she missed out on a lot of school while filming Harry Potter. Since her break from Brown and promoting Harry Potter, modeling, and filming ‘Perk of Being a Wallflower’ in 2011, her major has changed to English.

Fame and recognition is one thing. I do not think you really get used to the craziness associated with it like the stares, whispers and shouts, and general weirdness. I think you just cope with it.

Chris said...

@anonymous 4:28, When Emma was on Regis and Kelly in 2010 she said "I really love the American attitude to education. It's just much broader and um...I just wanted an adventure." And who knows, she might be trying (although I personlly highly doubt it) to major in both History and Literature, something similar to what I did.

CutiePie32 said...

i think all of you have been dooped when it comes to Emma & her education.She NEVER had a normal life and she never went to school without taking a break from it.
She doesn't need school even though she will finish whenever she wants too.School is about getting degrees so you can have a job in life.Emma,has a job that schools can't buy.Good for her.She deserves it.But i'm sick & tored of all this school nonsense.Emma said her life would be boring if she wasn't a famous actor when asked on Letterman last year.This leaves me to beleive that school,for Emma,can be boring.Thus,why she isn't able to stick with it for an entire year without breaks.

Chris said...

And yet in the same Regis interview she gushes about how much she enjoys the college life, we agree to disagree.

Anonymous said...

Whatever. i think Emma has just let her education go. Am I disapointed? Yes. Can I do shit about it? No. So I'll just let it go, swallow that down and move on.

Anonymous said...

I watched all the Letterman shows with Emma, she never said she was bored when not acting, but regardless even if actresses and actors make a lot of money, there is nothing wrong about being able to speak with some base of knowledge. Being an (a good) actor/actress demands a broad scope of knowledge. I find it disappointing that she is deferring her education so much. I hope she will do something come September or October. At Oxford she can start in October. Noah should be done by then. To Chris, I also like the US Education. I have a degree from US university, UK and a German University, and my education was the broadest and the best and most demanding in the US. I am just a believer that actors should also well educated and not just rely on a smoke screen to carry them through. All films are a smoke screen, even though we enjoy them tremendously.

Anonymous said...

It is disappointing though regarding her education, since she gushed so much about how important education was to her. Well if anything, she got positive attention from the press as the smart actress who values education. I just hope she just pulls through as something that is important as a means of life not as I have a lot of money and in between gigs, I will play school.

Anonymous said...

I say logical would be to finish up at Oxford or/and go to RADA for acting and directing, since that is now her established career. I think it would be unwise for her to just act. High intelligence can also be a hindrance in acting when it is not properly schooled. Actors who are more average don't tend to think about other things and are not offered more intellectually based roles, but Emma is not some SOAP darling, she has brains and that brain needs to be chiseled for acting and directing if that is really her career choice. If she doesn't do this, after awhile she will just twitter to average like so many others.

Anonymous said...

Yea! I agree with 9:45 but I guess that there can only be a few excellent actors. Excellent is a joy to watch and lets you think along, average well OK- next-YAWn!

Tsss... I'm really wondering why she did that to her dog. That wasn't necessary. She looks more and more like a superficial celeb.

Agreed. There's more pics out there.

well, it´s actually sophie sumners dog and she dyed it pink to raise money for breast cancer research or something like that. She and Emma both tweeted about it

Anonymous said...

Oh. Alright. If true, that's a pretty good reason. So I take back what I said.

CutiePie32 said...

O BOY.....now everyone thinks Emma is cruel to animals.I know its not hers,it's Sophie's,but everyone is on Emma about this now.EVen though it's not her dog,she should not be walking it.Just my opioion.Or is it her dog?i'm confused.

Chris said...

It's Sophie's, the Daily Fail didn't bother posting the pictures that had Sophie walking the dog. If you follow her on Twitter, she tweets about that dog almost every other day lol

Anonymous said...

Emma just responded on Twitter a about the dog.

CutiePie32 said...

Yea,she must have been upset when she read that article from the daily mail...However,it is her fault for walking somebody else's dog..Get your own dog Bra!......LOL

Anonymous said...

I think you should be able to walk a dog without some news agency making a big deal about it.

CutiePie32 said...

i see their point though,dye can be harmful to any pet.Doesn't matter who'd dog it is.i KNOW it's FOR A GOOD CAUSE but,really,a dog?....how about a purse or shoe?....not a living thing,thats just not right and to be honest,just plain stupid.i can see Sophie doing something like this but Emma surprised me on this one.Even though she did not do it.i know its for cancer but she should have seen this one coming if she was as smart as everyone thought she was.

Anonymous said...

Does anyone here know Sophie ? Her personality and how she is in regular life ?

CutiePie32 said...

i don't know her,never heard her speak either.But the way she swung her arm at the papparazzi last year while trying to defend Emma Watson,she seemed very bitchy and had that "i don't give a fuck" attitude.it surprises me Emma would befreind someone like that but then again,Emma could be a mean person too.I highly doubt that but Sophie seems the exact opposite of Emma Watson.

Anonymous said...

For every compliment you give, two bitchslaps are right behind it. I think Emma knows more about who Sophie is after spending years being her friend than you do looking at 1 photo. But you have a habit of coming to quick conclusions and sticking to them regardless.

Anonymous said...

lol some of these comments make me laugh

Anonymous said...

Ok; this is ridiculous. This is all the information we have right to have: Emma and Sophie have been best friends since childhood. Unless you've met the both of them, you have no right to discuss their so called personality or attitude. Darcy, the pink dog wonder is dyed with a beetroot dye, completly non toxic, and harmless. Sophie is Darcys owner, and has dyed him in her efforts to raise money for breast cancer research. That is all the information you should need. Anyone who persists in snooping can fuck off

Ange said...

tell me who you friends are and I'll tell you who you are

Dogs are not toys or accessories. Dye your own hair and leave the dog alone.

...Eden, I think it's time to disable the comments section, something I would have done ages ago....

coslopus said...

Eden, where are you? So much Emma stuff has happened since the 19th. She's tweeted a lot, and that whole dog thing.

Is that why there haven't been any new posts? Trying to avoid Emma with the dog? My opinion-I know Emma didn't do that to the dog, and it's not hers, and that dye doesn't hurt the dog, but Emma made a terrible PR move. Didn't she know her reputation would go way down because of this? Sophie, why didn't you just buy the dog a pink doggie sweater, or dye your own hair pink?

I'm happy that Emma went on twitter and cleared everything up. Still, recovery from this is going to be hard.

CutiePie32 said...

Just realized of Eden dies than this site dies.FUCK

No worries, this will not affect her much at all…

I would rather she call them on their nonsense quickly than let it go like she has done in the past. Tabloid rags will continue to write and haters will continue to hate, no change here…

Cutie has point though- dye or die your own hair, but leave the dog's along. But this isn't Emma's fault

Just to change the subject. Just saw the imdb from Rupert and Daniel. Rupert is getting a lot of good gigs. A new one in development is Enemy of Man. It seems our favorite Trio is doing really well. But sadly, it seems to be slowing down for Daniel.

The paparazzi were unbelievably rude and Sophie was defending Emma. That doesn't make her a bitch, it makes het a good friend

CutiePie32 said...

i love how the news is reporting that the dog actually belongs to Stuart Simon instead of the real owner,Sophie Sumner.Emma must not want her freind to get negative publicity.But,geez lieing never looks good either when you're famous.

Serge said...

Leave Emma alone, that dog isn't your or her business. She's out-of-action, that's Sophie's dog. Emma only helps to her friends. It's not any kind of PR move. Btw you're not working in this kind of business, so how can you talk about it without any experience or knowledge of it?! Silly amateurs & windbags.
