OUR LAST EXHIBITION

Our previous exhibition at R.K. Burt Gallery was a great success, with a packed-out private view, and a steady flow of visitors during the fortnight it was open.

Beautifully presented. Variety of pieces and of excellent standard.

Very colourful, bright, stimulating and gorgeous.

An amazing show, will be telling friends to come and see it.

Love to see the diversity of medium and subject matter. Look forward to more.

Inspiring works – what a wealth of varied art.

Exhibition hanging day

Monday was installation day for the Holborn Group. All fifteen of us met at R K Burt & Co Gallery in SE1 in the morning to draw lots on who would hang where. Fuelled by coffee from The Gentlemen Baristas next door we got to work! You can see some pictures from the day with captions below.
