After a busy and fulfilling 2018 for The Nine British Art, we look forward to the new year with renewed vigour. Not only will The Nine British Art be celebrating St Ives and post-war work with its customary enthusiasm and expertise in 2019, we’re also delighted to be presenting contemporary artists both at prestigious art fairs and as part of our own exhibitions.
As is traditional, the international art calendar opens with London Art Fair (January 16-20) and The Nine British Art is pleased to have a presence at this important event once again. From private collections we’ve acquired work by Barbara Hepworth, Patrick Heron and Adrian Heath, forming a small grouping that thematically connects St Ives and London and will be certain to interest visitors to our stand (No 40)
The Nine British Art has always been committed to sculpture, too, and at London Art Fair we’re excited to present three works by the established Cornwall-based sculptor Denis Mitchell together with bronzes by Reg Butler and F E McWilliam.
Staying in the South West, we return to the work of one of our favourite contemporary artists, Jeremy Gardiner, in March. After the success of his show at The Nine British Art in 2016, we were intrigued to see what Jeremy would do next, and the answer is contained within a new exhibition at our Bury Street gallery (March 6-22). Charting Jeremy’s recent visits to iconic locations along the South West Coast Path, the longest National Trail in Britain, the new work takes his career-long interest in the semi-abstraction of location and terrain in fascinating new directions.
