Shining suns and Rising Stars

September 22, 2008

Last Thursday Ang and I journeyed down to London for the Private View at the Belgravia.  It was a fantastic sunny day, and we made the most of being in London by going to see the superb Francis Bacon Exhibition at the Tate Britain. Well worth seeing.

We strolled through the streets of central London in the late afternoon sun and sat in Green Park, enjoying a spot of people watching until it was time to go the the Belgravia.

The Belgravia Gallery is an extraordinary gallery.  Not only is it a highly professional and successful commercial gallery in Mayfair, but also there are few galleries that could profess to doing quite so much as the Belgravia in terms of community and charitable work. Check out their website to see some of the projects that they have initiated and are patrons of.  It is so refreshing to be associated with a Gallery with such a conscience.

We were treated to the singing of the truly marvelous South African Opera singer Siphiwo Ntshebe.  I had never experienced at close hand the power of such a voice… every single hair stood on end, it truly was magnificent.

I was proud to see my work hung with the work of other new and ascending artists, they looked good. Actually, they looked better than that… they looked fantastic!

It was a wonderful day to remember, from start to finish.
