The Art Fair and London Art Week

Art Fair
We will be exhibiting at The Art Antiques London Fair from 24 - 30th June on Stand E16.  The Albert Memorial and Kensington Gardens once again provide the stunning backdrop to one of London's most exciting and glamorous art and antique fairs. Held in a beautiful bespoke pavilion opposite the Royal Albert Hall and close to the site of the Great Exhibition of 1851 Art Antiques London brings together leading international dealers and discerning visitors from all over the world, who can buy with confidence at this strictly vetted sumptuous summer showcase for the arts.  Pop into the gallery to pick up a complementary ticket for two which has an equivalent value of £40.

We will be exhibiting a range of some of the most prolific illustrators of the 20th century: Edward Ardizzone:

Quentin Blake:

and Brian Wildsmith to name a few:

To view the full range of works being exhibited please see our website.  We look forward to welcoming you to stand E16.

London Art Week
Following our stint at Art Antiques London we then roll straight into London Art Week.  This hugely important gallery-based celebration of pre-contemporary art, will take place in Mayfair and St. James’s from 1 - 8 July.  Bringing together almost 50 leading specialist dealers and three auction houses, this year will present more dedicated exhibitions than ever before; and  the IllustrationCupboard Gallery we will be exhibiting one of our favourites: George Butler, whose work is available to view online now and in the gallery from 1 July to coincide with this spectacular celebration.

Displaced People: Reportage Illustration will focus on George's recent travels in Syria and covers the effects of the current migration crisis in Europe.  A selection of original drawings and watercolours are available to purchase online, over the phone and in the IllustrationCupboard Gallery.

The video below from February 2015 by Monocle Magazine explores the emotion and truth behind George's illustrations:

As part of the exhibition we will be hosting a very special evening with the man himself who will be reflecting on his experiences for the most recent exhibition.  Tickets for this event are limited to 25, and £20 each - please contact the gallery directly on 0207 976 1727 to book.
