London Art Fair and exhibition news
2nd January, 2020
Firstly, a happy and prosperous new year to you all, may it prove a little more settled than it has been for many (most) during 2019.
Our first major gallery event of the year takes place in the very near future; The London Art Fair opens its doors on the evening of the 21st January and runs until Sunday 26th. This will be our fifth consecutive appearance and we've acquired, and held back, many pieces, including five ceramic works by Grayson Perry (RA), a rare oil by Frank Auerbach, an amazing painting by Hughie O'Donoghue (RA) and two paintings by the late John Bellany (RA), including one of the very rare 1967 series inspired by his life-changing trip to the site of the Buchenwald concentration camp earlier that same year. Many of the works we'll be exhibiting can be seen on the following link, although this is by no means comprehensive LONDON ART FAIR EXHIBITION
Anyone wishing to take advantage of complimentary tickets to the fair may do so via THIS LINK using code (when prompted) 20CASTLEGATEHOUSE
Additionally, a reminder that entries are open to The Castlegate Prize, a £10,000 first-place open art competition with all entry fees going to the wonderful charity YoungMinds, helping raise awareness of youth mental health issues throughout the UK. Entries close on February 14th. Just click on the link above for full details and how to apply.
Looking forward further into 2020, we'll be staging a solo exhibition by Ian Norris, his fourth with Castlegate and very much linked in with the 250th anniversary of the birth of poet William Wordsworth, who was born in Cockermouth in 1770. We'll also be exhibiting at the Saatchi Gallery, London for two major events and plan on staging a rather special gallery exhibition of portraiture later in the year, including works spanning four centuries; more of that to come.
All for now, Steve and Christine
