SCARVES BY OLGA SIMONOVA

Influenced by the Russian avant-arde, Olga Simonova, a St Petersburg theatre set designer for many years, has produced a range of scarves, each one original with themes taken from paintings she produces for Artists of Russia.

These beautiful scarves, original designs on polyester, are available through Francis Iles. View the full range here. Olga Simonova is one of our featured artists in the Quarterly Collection 2 inhouse exhibition now running at the gallery.

This year we very much look forward to showcasing their work at art fairs and of course our own in house exhibitions. Our new site dedicated to the Russian Artists is now live.

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.
