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.

Celebrating a successful exhibition!

A big thank you to everyone that supported us during our first exhibition of The Holborn Group at R. K. Burt Gallery last month!

The exhibition was a brilliant success with a steady flow of visitors passing through each day over the two weeks the exhibition was on. As always the private view was packed and lively, with flowing wine and conversation! We were especially pleased that a good number of artworks were sold, an increase on last years exhibition at Espacio Gallery and with many of our artists making their first ever sales!
