Anise Gallery presents works by Jeanette Barnes in ‘Time and Tide’ (5/Nov-5/Dec)

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2015

Anise Gallery presents works by Jeanette Barnes in ‘Time and Tide’, an exhibition at their Shad Thames space running from 5th November to 5th December.

Jeanette Barnes has, for the past 25 years, been capturing the city of London’s boundless energy through her drawings. Often vast in scale, they engage with the continual development of the urban environment and its relationship with those who inhabit it. In contrast to the frantic scenes that they depict, Jeanette’s drawings evolve gradually over time, the ebb and flow of information, akin to a passage of time, developing until the drawings outcome is found.

Her most recent work has taken her further into the depths of time, moving away from the familiar contemporary London to an exploration into its history, hidden and preserved amongst the river beds of the Thames. Everyday artefacts, carefully selected for their resonance, from specific sites along the Thames, St Paul’s, the Globe Theatre and Shad Thames, are reinterpreted. Their simplistic beauty highlighted and through integrating these objects into her work, Jeanette reconnects them with the present London.

‘Time and Tide’ brings these two bodies of work together for the first time, contrasting the activity and timespan of contemporary London with that deeper sense of history that London’s rivers maintain to re-frame our view of then and now.

Monday, October 12th, 2015

In celebration of London Frieze week, a week in which the arts are celebrated across the capital, thBrownhills Logo (for website)e Association of Women Art Dealers (AWAD) is pleased to invite you to its autumn Social on Monday 12th October from 6 to 8.30pm.

We are very thankful to Brownhill Insurance (aka Love Art Insurance) for supporting this event.

exhibit-eAt 7pm a keynote address will be delivered on an important topic for industry professionals: ‘What makes a great gallery website’ talk by Billy Maker, Executive Director, exhibit-E, the leading provider of websites for the art world and AWAD’s newest Partner organisationThey launched their first exhibit-E automated website in 1998 and now serve over 400 gallery websites world wide.

exhibit-E’s clients include blue chip names such as Gagosian, The Willem De Kooning Foundation and artist Laurie Simmons, in addition to localised gallery brands such as AWAD’s NYC Founding Member Liz Garvey’s Garvey|Simon Art Access.

“Galleries rely on their websites on an everyday basis to promote, educate and communicate. Unfortunately, cumbersome user interfaces, poor graphic design, and poor programming hamper far too many websites. As the artist Laurie Simmons [whose website has been designed by exhibit-E] observes ‘I find myself shocked at times that certain entities and individuals can endorse their own sites given how difficult they make it to get around.”
