Abstract Minds…

The Old Biscuit Factory London 7th February 2019

It was certainly a whirlwind this last few weeks but what an incredible experience it was! In early January I was delighted to be invited to show my Abstract Minds Collection at the Old Biscuit Factory in Bermondsey, London with the opening night held on the 7th February.

I had very little time overall to prepare everything but it was wonderful selecting the paintings out of the collection and preparing the frames. So how do you prepare for an art exhibition? Well the main aspects to it are agreeing which pieces you would like to show, then ensuring the canvases or frames are up to gallery standard. Check the hanging system at the gallery and ensure your fittings correspond with that, then decide if you’re using a courier or delivering them yourself.

the most exciting prospect of the opening night for me, was walking into the gallery for the first time and seeing my beautiful artwork displayed on the wall

In my case, I chose to have them sent by courier otherwise I would have been stuck in London for over a week (albeit a great opportunity to see the sights!). I opted to go down on the opening night and arrange a courier for any unsold work following the end of the exhibition.

When I arrived in Bermondsey I was definitely a little nervous but the most exciting prospect of the opening night for me, was walking into the gallery for the first time and seeing my beautiful artwork displayed on the wall - and it was beautifully curated…

The Old Biscuit Factory is made up of old warehouses now used as studio space for emerging and professional artists, as well as gallery space for the likes of Art Number 23. Displaying artwork in a warehouse building was actually a fantastic environment for this particular collection and created a stunning backdrop to all the artwork as well as my own.

Art Number 23 host exhibitions in other parts of Europe and the next one on my list is Slovakia! So watch this space for some rather exciting news…
