The Redfern at Olympia
The Redfern Gallery will be showing once again at this year’s Olympia Art & Antiques Fair. We will be placing an emphasis on the Grosvenor School linocuts, to coincide with Cutting Edge, the major retrospective at Dulwich Picture Gallery, which runs from 19 June to 8 September. This display will also mark 90 years since the Redfern Gallery hosted the very first exhibition of linocuts by Claude Flight and his students from the Grosvenor School of Modern Art. Numerous successful and critically acclaimed exhibitions at the Redfern followed throughout the 1930s, some of which toured internationally to Australia, the USA and China. The Redfern represented both Cyril Edward Power and Sybil Andrews during their lifetimes and, in recent years, has represented both artists’ estates. In the 1980s Redfern played a key role in the reappraisal of the Grosvenor School artists bringing them back to prominence both in the UK and internationally. A carefully curated display of linocuts by the best-known exponents of the medium - Sybil Andrews, Claude Flight, Cyril Edward Power and Lill Tschudi - will be on show at Olympia.
In addition, the stand will feature a wall dedicated to John Carter RA, whose works on paper were the subejct of a recent RA publication; as well as a selection of paintings, prints and works on paper by Frank Avray Wilson, Paul Feiler, Dame Barbara Hepworth, Ivon Hitchens, Patrick Procktor RA and David Tindle RA.
The Olympia Art & Antiques Fair runs from 19-28 June at Olympia, London.
