Countdown to my new Solo Exhibition | 1 day – Ready to go!
I can’t believe it. After almost as many months of planning and preparation as it takes to make a baby, my baby – my new solo art exhibition When (S)pain became the Norm at London’s Strand Gallery – is finally upon us. Today I will be heading into the gallery to set up the show which comprises 105 displayed and framed works, and an additional 65 unframed mounted works – all for sale, of course.
The exhibition is the result of 6 years of hard creative slog. It’s testament to the constant workings of my imagination, and the unrelenting desire to be creating, whether it be on canvas or paper. Each painting or print has a detailed comprehensive story which is told through the combination of colours and form, and in its overall composition, while each Norm illustration has itself been used to tell or accompany a story on this very blog. All in all, from today onwards, London’s Strand Gallery will be filled with 105 windows onto another world, inviting viewers to enter in and go on a little journey within each work.
Preparations for the show
So as I commence the final piece of my journey towards getting my show open to the world, the final piece of the jigsaw is YOU – without viewers with whom I can share my work, the exhibition will not be ultimately successful. Like any artist, I need my works to be seen – I want people to see my view of the world, even if it is only for a few days. And of course, I need to sell, so that my work can spread beyond the boundaries of my art-filled home to bring colour and life to others. So please do put the details of my exhibition in your diary and come along to central London to share in the world of De Lacy-Brown Art for a moment or two. It won’t be the same without you.
The exhibition is on at The Strand Gallery, 32 John Adam Street, London WC2N 6BP from 13 – 18 May 2014. The gallery is open daily 11am – 7pm with early closure on Sunday. See you there!
