QUARTERLY COLLECTION 4

Quarterly Collection 4 continues at the Gallery featuring three of the best, from the Artists of Russia. Valeriy Gridnev, renowned portrait artist whose brush strokes dazzle with dexterity. Olga Oreshnikov with her elaborate renaissance characters occupying a world of myth and symbolism, and Andrei Smirnov whose love of Klimt is evident in his bold geometric compositions his heroines lightly teasing from the canvas with playful charm. Along with new works from our Gallery artists this exhibition is a feast for the senses.

NEW DAWN             

New Dawn is a contemporary sculpture by Mary Branson commemoration the campaign that led to women getting the vote in 1928. It was unveiled at the Houses of Parliament on 7th June. Mary called on Adam Aaronson, our Gallery glass artist, to help turn the glass element of her concept into reality.

Adam created 168 hand blown coloured glass discs inspired by the scrolls in the Act Room, where acts of parliament are stored. For more information follow the links on Adam’s page.
