Galleries - December 2010

Giannamore at La Galerie – others appreciate the diversity offered by galleries like the Russell , Barry Keene , Twenty Twenty or the Art Shop . Brad Faine's Coriander Studio, which works with artists of the calibre of Peter Blake, John Hoyland and Barbara Rae, is being celebrated in a Christmas show at Jill George , but I've got my eye on something at Keith Chapman , a dealer who has made his mark purveying the slightly unfashionable but still highly desirable at very reasonable prices. Abbott and Holder reign supreme in the field the bold or curious a chance to try their hand at the craft. For memories of India, look at Joss Graham's textiles from the sub- continent. For a Bratby dahlia or a French fabric design, try artmonger extraordinaire Julian Hartnoll . If it's a thoroughly contemporary piece you're after, try Sphere Gallery or the artist- run Skylark Galleries , or if you prefer lutra lutra (the otter), contact Laurence Broderick . Many people find a dealer whose taste they click with – an Anthony Hepworth or Sarah Myerscough or Karen of affordable prints and drawings, but many well-priced oils can also be found adorning the staircases of their Museum Street premises.
