London Art Fair, New Work and Coast to Coast
22nd December, 2022
22nd December, 2022
As we race toward the new year, the London Art Fair returns to its January schedule and flings open its doors on Wednesday 18th to Sunday 22nd. It was pushed forward to April earlier this year due to Omicron (can you believe that was at the start of this year!?), so we’re pleased it’s back in its traditional January slot.
It’s a real start to the year for us, something to get energised for in the cold depths of winter. We have a limited number of complimentary e-tickets, so should anyone wish to attend from the Wednesday to the Sunday, please do let us know and we can supply the details. We'll be exhibiting work by Frank Auerbach, Winifred Nicholson, Leon Kossoff, Craig Simpson, Norman Cornish, Cathy Lewis, Keith Vaughan, Ken Howard, and Hughie O'Donoghue, amongst many others.
We continue to scour the UK for works to bring into Castlegate, so as always, it’s worth reviewing our Latest Work section; amongst these, we were thrilled to have acquired a rare small oil by Norman Cornish, having lived in the same family collection since acquisition from the Stone Gallery in the 1960s.
Looking toward February, at the very end of the month we’ll be staging Coast to Coast, an exhibition of over forty paintings by the highly regarded Lawrence Quigley. Lawrence has spent the past year-plus painting numerous points of the famous Wainwright Coast to Coast walk, from West across to East of the north of England. All paintings have been created in the open air over four seasons, with Lawrence splitting the walk up, often camping out, paints in hand, capturing the way the journey changes over the months. More of that to follow in the new year, but it promises to be a thoroughly excellent record of an artist’s journey across England.
All for now, we hope everyone has the Christmas and New Year they hope for; I think we all deserve at least that.
