Exhibitions Past and Future

Last summer’s Divergent Visions exhibition at Lauderdale House Gallery was a great success, and we look forward to exhibiting there again in the future. Thanks to everyone who came along and told us how much they appreciated both the work and the venue.

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.
