The last day of October brought us the news that once again, the UK would go into a full lockdown, similar to the one we had experienced earlier this year.
Of course, this is being implemented to protect both us as individuals and the NHS. S&P gallery would like to extend our deepest thank you to those on the frontline putting others before themselves each and every day. The health and safety of our guests and employees remains our highest priority.
Unfortunately, this does mean that for the time being, our South Kensington gallery will be closed until the proposed end-date of December 2nd. However, as our physical door closes, our digital one opens. Our dedicated gallery team will be working to reach our guests virtually through a plethora of digital activities. Read on to learn more about what you can expect this November…
November is an exciting month for us here at S&P gallery, despite not being able to welcome you to the gallery anymore, we have lots of events on their way.
Our pop-art showcase is currently on show on our ground floor gallery. Giving centre-stage to America’s sensational Kevin T Kelly & the UK’s answer to Lichtenstein: Deborah Azzopardi. If you are local to the area, why not redirect your daily jog along Gloucester Road to see these wonderful pieces for yourself?
Not a local? No worry! Throughout November we are hosting viewing rooms through our platform on Artsy, changing each and every week.
The 6th of November would have been our sold-out late-night Friday with Deborah Azzopardi herself in attendance. This has now been cancelled – as have all late-night Fridays for the foreseeable – in accordance with Government guidelines. We will be speaking with Deborah on Friday night nonetheless, so keep an eye on our social media for an interview speaking about her brilliantly comedic and carefully crafted pieces. Follow us on social media!
Our Christmas showcase has been postponed for the moment, and we look forward to presenting the stunning works in early December once the restrictions have been eased. Featuring a careful selection of the finest old masters – from Monet to Van Gogh – as well as some exciting emerging artists who we are thrilled to present.
Our Artsy viewing room for the Christmas showcase will be in 4 parts, listed with their dates of launch below:
Emerging Artists – 12th – 30th of November
Sidney Maurer – 16th – 22nd of November
Equestrian classics – 23rd – 29th of November
Old Masters – 30th November to the 6th of December
As we make our way into December, we hope we can prepare the gallery space to welcome you back safely. We have a wonderfully festive ‘12 Days of Christmas’ series of workshops planned, all of which will be ticketed and released via Eventbrite in late November.
