Gallery Petit may be on holiday but we’re getting excited about the start of our Autumn series of exhibitions. Sandra is off to New York to choose Marc Blane’s work in preparation for his upcoming show, ‘Financial Statements’, opening November 19th. The show will bring together a controversial series of mixed media works on linen including American currency, exhibited in London for the first time! Whilst out there she will also be keeping an eye on the hot, new trends showing in the Big Apple’s galleries. Look out for updates from Sandra’s visit on Discover Art Now where she’ll be reporting on what she ‘discovers’ on her travels as well as all the big news on the Art scene!
We will be back in September with an exciting programme of exhibitions and salon receptions.
We are delighted to begin our autumn programme with New York artist Marc Blane. His series ‘Financial Statements’ is a provocative and pertinent collection of mixed media works on linen, which embody the conundrum of globalised capitalism today.
John Sydney Carter
We are very excited to be showing a selection of works by celebrated sculptor John Sydney Carter at a private salon later in the autumn.
This show will bring together smaller and larger sculptures – some of which will be recast exclusively for the show. Carter, a fellow of the Royal Society of Sculpture, has most recently been commissioned to complete his ‘Leicester Lightbulb’ – a new 30ft landmark conceived to put the city on the map.
Photographer David Stetson will be returning to London after his career has taken him to New York and Tokyo, and will be exhibiting his new fine art photography for the first time. These large-scale works on aluminium are not to be missed!
Our next pop-up exhibition will take place in the heart of Chelsea, featuring early works from the 70s by Richard Walker. Entitled ‘Rip It Up and Start Again’, the show will revisit the punk heritage of Chelsea’s King’s Road.
artBO and Cartagena Biennial, Colombia
Following Ofelia Rodriguez’s successful exhibition at the Colombian Consulate last month, and to develop her keen interest in Latin American – and particularly Colombian – art, Sandra Higgins will be visiting artBO – the international contemporary art fair in Bogota this October, as well as the first biennial of international contemporary art in Cartagena de Indias.
