Under the Vapour Trails

Posted: 18 January 2022

This exhibition of Simon Bartram’s work at the Hartlepool Art Gallery opens on 29th January 2022. To describe it as an exhibition of portraits would be skimming the surface as it’s so much more than that. Simon has delved into his roots in the north-east of England and produced a profound and affectionate piece of speculation as to what’s in the minds of the people of his city. Total magic.
More on Simon here.

The Albert Hall

Posted: 9 December 2021

Paul Cox’s way of adding so much life and sunshine to any scene is just perfect for this view of Albertropolis on the first day of the BBC Proms. So much so, that we’ve decided to offer this image as a limited edition print, signed by Paul, to brighten us up on these wintry days. Just email if you like the idea. At £150 plus VAT, perhaps the perfect gift.
