The international arts community celebrates the 10th anniversary of art London.
LONDON--Art London, the UK's leading fair for contemporary and modern art, celebrates its 10th anniversary in October. The venue for this year's fair is a 75,000-square-foot marquee set in the grounds of The Royal Hospital, Chelsea, London. Art London showcases more than 75 leading UK and international galleries, representing painting, sculpture, photography, works on paper, ceramics and glass with prices ranging from 500 [pounds sterling] to in excess of 500,000 [pounds sterling].
Returning exhibitors include such established names as Jonathan Clark, Agnew's and the Fine Art Society. New exhibitors include Beaux Arts (London), Whitfield Fine Art and Whitford Fine Art.
Due to the increased number of exhibitors showing and selling historically significant works, the organizers are moving the fair's dateline back to 1850. Last year's sales from this section included works by Piet Mondrian, Ben Nicholson, Vanessa Bell, Samuel John Peploe and John Craxton. Art London's non-selling Special
Exhibition is dedicated to one of Britain's foremost postwar artists, Wilhelmina Barns-Graham (1912-2004), a founding member of the influential Penwith Society of Arts in St. Ives, which also included Ben Nicholson and Barbara Hepworth. The exhibition, titled "The Legacy of Wilhelmina Barns-Graham, Paintings and Drawings 1938-2008," will be the first major showing of her paintings and drawings assembled in a London venue.
