Art London 2011 Fair at the Royal Hospital in Chelsea
London - SEP 29, 2011
London.- Art London is delighted to announce the details of its 2011 fair at Royal Hospital, Chelsea. From October 6th through October 10th, galleries from across the globe will come together for Art London’s annual event to present carefully curated exhibitions of both blue-chip historical and contemporary art works. As well as London-based and UK galleries, an exciting international focus will be brought by galleries showing artists from Europe, Australia and the United States. This year, the cultural dynamism brought by galleries representing Asia and the Middle East will also give an added dimension to the already buzzing art scene found at Art London. Art London is known for its success in attracting new and young buyers as well as established collectors, with works ranging in price and medium. Stands specialising in historical works will bring paintings or drawings by Impressionist and Modern British artists including Camille Pissarro, L.S. Lowry, Sir Peter Blake, Pablo Picasso and Graham Sutherland among others. The fair will also show new and unusual installations, photography and mixed media works by emerging contemporary artists such as Tom Leighton, Luke Foreman, Emma Hack and Alastair Gibson. There is sure to be no shortage of variety for London’s art lovers. Galleries exhibiting at the 2011 fair will include contemporary art specialists The Cynthia Corbett Gallery, The Rebecca Hossack Art Gallery, Tamara Beckwith’s The Little Black Gallery, Long & Ryle Contemporary Art, and Galerie Olivier Waltman as well as historical art specialists including Whitford Fine Art, The Court Gallery, Clerkenwell Fine Art, and the Stern Pissarro Gallery. International galleries will include Lebanese art specialists, Art Med, Vietnamese art dealers, Apricot Gallery, Irish gallery, Oliver Sears, and Hong Kong gallery Karin Weber. In 2010, Art London attracted over 16,200 visitors and was described by The Times as “one of the most enjoyable modern art fairs”. Apollo magazine similarly raved about the fair stating “[Art London] sets outs to marry serious art with a welcoming and friendly approach”. Founder of Art London, Ralph Ward-Jackson, commented “Testament to the growing popularity of Art London, this year we will be hosting an exceptional range of galleries both local to the UK and internationally. We are extremely excited about the variety of art on offer, and we are certain that Art London 2011 will follow in the success of its previous editions.” Each year Art London works alongside a series of charity partners who benefit directly from the sale of artwork on their stands. This year the fair’s charity partners will include Survival International and Blue Sky Healing Home. Survival International is the only human rights organisation that helps to protect the lives, land and human rights of tribal people. A photography exhibition and sale at Art London, curated by Survival International supporter Ghislain Pascal of The Little Black Gallery, will include works by legendary photographers Bob Carlos Clarke, Duffy, Chris Levine, Gered Mankowitz, Terry O'Neill and Sebastiao Salgado among others. Blue Sky Healing Home is a small, private medical foster home in Beijing, China, that helps orphans and children from poor families receive the medical care and surgeries needed. Their home provides children with a loving and clean environment to heal their wounds and nurture their physical capabilities. To support Blue Sky Healing Home, their stand at Art London will exhibit work by 17 year old prodigy, photographer Tanis Chalopin. Besides the main gallery within the marquee at Royal Hospital, Chelsea, Art London will also present its acclaimed Sculpture Garden with monumental outdoor pieces. 2011 is set to exhibit an exciting and eclectic range of works including a 10 metre installation by street artist, L’Atlas.
