In a magnificent blaze of sunshine, summer has finally arrived, bringing with it exciting news and an exceptional collection of new fine art. Terence Clarke’s new painting ‘Golden Afternoon, Cote D’Azur’ is a perfectly orchestrated symphony of bold brushstrokes and vivid colour, radiating warmth and vitality in equal measure. Such was Terence’s enjoyment in painting the famed Cap de l’Aigle, he wrote a full-length article about the process that will be featured in next month’s issue of Artists & Illustrators. With such fascinating insight into Terence’s creative process, ‘Golden Afternoon, Cote D’Azur’ is a true prize for collectors of contemporary art.
This month the gallery excitedly opens its eagerly anticipated third annual Clare Haley exhibition, ‘Clare Haley: Light of Yorkshire’. The exhibition showcases an exclusive collection of Clare’s work that magnificently articulates the raw, dramatic beauty of landscape and light. The exhibition will open on Friday the 27th of July and run until Sunday, the 26th of August; but if previous years are anything to go by, an early viewing is strongly advised to avoid disappointment. Preview catalogues will also be available before the official opening, so please do register your interest with a member of gallery staff if you would like to receive this exclusive preview.
In equally exciting news, the gallery is thrilled to announce that we have been accepted to the Own Art scheme, which allows collectors to spread the cost of a purchase over 10 months with an interest free loan—all whilst enjoying the new artwork at home. It is also worth mentioning that existing set aside clients may transfer their remaining balance to the scheme in order to take their artwork home immediately. Additional details will follow once the scheme is fully up and running; but if you would like more information about the scheme, qualifying artwork or eligibility, please contact a member of gallery staff.
Finally, this month the gallery has received a sensational selection of work from some of our most popular artists, including Edward Hersey, Raymond Campbell, Wayne Westwood, Alex Hill, Terry Evans, Sean Durkin, Stuart Herod, Ken Hammond and Terry Grundy. Be sure to check our Recently Acquired page to view the new collection, as well as to secure a first look at any new work to arrive throughout the month.
We wish you the best, and look forward to welcoming you to our galleries soon.
