You may recall from the last newsletter that we introduced you to a collage by Francis Davison. Davison is a new name for the gallery, although not to the art world, so we were very excited to read in the Independent’s Saturday review section, Radar, that Davison’s collage was the subject of ‘Great Works by Michael Glover’. Clearly, like us, Mr Glover recognises the beauty in Davison’s work.
As ever some great new pieces have arrived through the door. To begin with, we have a wonderful print by leading British artist, John Hoyland. Entitled ‘Betwixt and Between’, this large, colourful abstract is a signed artist’s proof, dating from 1981. We also have a couple of new pieces by Jenny Grevatte – you may recall that we introduced this artist to you in last month’s newsletter and, to be honest, they are flying out of the door so if you think she might appeal to you then make haste because we don’t know how long these two new pieces will be with us. Thanks to a good old rummage through the stock room of our associate gallery, we have found another piece by the popular Arthur Luiz Piza; and we also have a couple of new etchings in by Chagall.
And in the pot department…
…We would hate to think that our pot customers were feeling left out so we are delighted to let you know that we have a small number of pieces in by the leading Korean potter, Lee Kang Hyo. There isn’t much available and prices start from £75 for the Sake cups and go up to £1,700 for his vase forms.
We also have some new pieces in by Jim Malone (you may recall the wonderful show we mounted of his work about a year ago) so pot lovers, make some time to pop in for a browse and see if you can’t find your next purchase from amongst our shelves.
12 March – John Piper Show
We are delighted to announce that our next show is work by the superb British artist John Piper. We will have a variety of works to choose from although we aren’t in a position to be very specific at this stage. More…
Although the exact date is yet to be finalised, we plan to bring you a Matisse extravaganza in May. We will be featuring a variety of works by this giant of the 20th century art world, including the lithographs made after the cut-outs and collages that are to feature in the Tate’s exhibition in April. Feast your eyes at the Tate on the multi-million pound pieces and then visit us to find one of your own, rather more affordable pieces to buy.
Just when you thought the Rembrandt etchings were not going to happen, these will now be brought to you in June – we needed a bit more time than we thought to frame and present them properly for you.
A note about half-term 14 – 22 February
We will be open as usual on 14, 15 and 16 February as well as 22 and 23 February but we will be closed on 19, 20 and 21 February (Wednesday, Thursday & Friday).
As ever, we encourage you to come in for a rummage and a chat because we might just be able to lay our hands on the exact piece that you are looking for……and if you aren’t sure quite what you are looking for then we are pretty good at helping you to narrow things down. We are never short of ideas!
