2012 has been our first full year as a contemporary art online gallery and we have loved every minute of it. We would like to thank all of our customers and artists for making this such a successful year.
We have also enjoyed immersing ourselves in the contemporary art scene. Following the year’s events closely, visiting exhibitions and keeping up to date with what is happening in the art world right now.
We are looking forward to 2013 on a personal level and have also been checking out the up and coming events and exhibitions for the new year.
Always looking to plan ahead, we have researched the some of the year’s offerings and are particularly looking forward to the following so far:
Lichtenstein at the Tate Modern (February 21 – May 27)
This retrospective at the Tate Modern is the first full-scale look at Roy Lichtenstein’s work in over twenty years and will feature 125 of his paintings and sculptures.
Lowry and the Painting of Modern Life at the Tate Britain (June 25 – October 20)
The first major exhibition of the artist’s work since his death in 1976. His depictions of the daily life of the working class in Salford and its surrounding areas appeal to our inner Northerner, and we look forward to seeing his lesser known landscape works.
Top of the list, and we think worth the wait, will be Paul Klee exhibition at Tate Modern (15 October 2013 – 9 March 2014)
The comprehensive Bauhaus exhibition at The Barbican earlier this year was a real highlight of 2012, and we are excited to see this in depth look at Klee’s work. It follows his career as a teacher and influential voice at the school, as well as his later pointillist work and the colourful, simpler geometric paintings produced later in his life. He is also a personal favourite.

We wish you a Happy New Year!
