London Art Fair begins...

The first big fair of the year, the London Art Fair, starts today at the Business and Design Centre in Islington.

It's an exciting fair not only because you can get there by travelling to one of the legendary stations on the Monopoly board (Angel Islington), but because there are over 100 stands of major art galleries, showing many of the most important names in 20th century art.  Plus there is also funky new contemporary work in the upstairs Arts Project space. 

It's a fair that really sets the tone and pace of the arts year ahead.

My new paintings are in the Main Hall on Stand 50 with Duncan R Miller Fine Arts.  Duncan Miller's of St James's is recognised as a leading gallery in the works of the Scottish Colourists - Cadell, Fergusson, Hunter and Peploe.

Winter Afternoon, Trafalgar Square (24 x 26, Oil on linen)

The paintings on show will  be a small taster for my forthcoming solo show in February, with seascapes of the Scottish west coast, the Northern Irish coastline, and scenes of Morecambe and London.

I'll be going down to visit the fair, and I'll report back!  I'm sure it will be a very exciting trip.

The London Art Fair runs until Sunday 22nd January.  There's more information about it here
