Summer Mixed Exhibition
featuring paintings by Sir Terry Frost, RA
& prints by Tom Hammick
4 July to 8 August 2015
This June we are pleased to present our popular annual Summer Exhibition.
This year, being the centenary of his birth, we celebrate the work of Sir Terry Frost, RA - one of the leading British abstract artists of the 20th century. We will have several unique works, as well as prints and a few rare/signed books. There are two major retrospectives of his work this year at Leeds Art Gallery from 19 June to 30 August and 10 October 2015 to 10 January 2016 at Newlyn Art Gallery and The Exchange in Penzance, Cornwall. These special exhibitions bring together a selection of the artist’s most significant paintings, collages and sculptural forms from public and private collections across the UK.
Also this month, a monograph on Tom Hammick's paintings and prints will be published by Lund Humphries: "Wall Window World" sets Hammick's art within the context of contemporary debates about painting while relating it to the two-centuries-old Romantic tradition. Julian Bell explores in depth the artist's working processes, imagery and career to date, arguing that Hammick's work constitutes one of the richest imaginative achievements in late 20th- and early 21st-century British art. The publication coincides with a museum tour of Tom Hammick's paintings starting at Bridport Arts Centre and ending at Flowers East, London.
We will have a small number of the deluxe limited edition of Tom Hammick's book which includes a three part etching "Fallout".
Some of you may have already seen our much expanded online shop which now has original works, prints, sculpture as well as artist deluxe books and rare & signed books.
