We are delighted to welcome Yorkshire based abstract artist Tessa Houghton to our Gallery team of artists. Tessa was due to be introduced at the now cancelled AAF Hampstead Heath this coming November. We now introduce her online in the hope that FRESH Cheltenham goes ahead in November enabling her work to be seen “In the Flesh” then?! Please click on Tessa’s page on our website for images and a full biography. Welcome Tessa!…
Due to the ongoing Covid19 Pandemic, we have just been informed by the Affordable Art Fair Team that both the Autumn Fair in Battersea Park and the re-scheduled Fair on Hampstead Heath have now both been totally cancelled for 2020. We are devastated for all our wonderful artists as, apart from our website, we promote their wonderful art at 8 International Art Fairs each year. So far the only Fair that has taken place was in Battersea Park mid-March just before “Lockdown”. As expected, the Fair was not well attended and all exhibitors were extremely nervous about catching something!!
Please do keep visiting our website for new work by our wonderful artists and for news of future Art Fairs! Hopefully by next year we will have a vaccine to enable us all to return to an almost “normal” life! Best wishes to you all. Linda…
Be sure to follow us on Social Media and look out for our latest Newsletter later this month.
Due to Covid19 none of our artists have been able to exhibit with us at International Art Fairs. All Spring and Summer Fairs were cancelled and it is now fingers crossed that the Autumn Fairs will go ahead?! The only way we can promote our wonderful artists at present is through our website as we no longer have Gallery space. We have some wonderful art to cheer you up during these depressing times. We need to support our innovative artists, so please do keep visiting our website for some inspiration.…
KEN PAINE 1926 – 2020
It is with great sadness that I have to announce that on 9 June a very special man and a brilliant artist passed away. My Gallery has been associated with Ken Paine PS SPF for well over 30 years. During that time, apart from working together, Ken became a very good friend and a positive influence in my Art World career. One of the highlights of our time together was my organising and presenting his 80th Birthday Party at the Arts Club in Dover Street, London. Many dignitaries attended this memorable occasion.
Ken’s soulful portraits will live on, and his sharp whit and forthright thinking will never be forgotten. Be at rest my dear friend. Our deepest sympathy goes out to his partner and artist Penelope Lee.
There are two books available covering the life and works of Ken Paine: “Ken Paine – His Life and Work” by Michael Simonow and “Nowhere to Hide” by Penelope Lee 2014
Stay safe and stay well!!!
Best wishes Linda
