Fredericks and London Art Fair break

            
There is such a thing as a free lunch and we had it half way through an immensely enjoyable trawl round this year’s London Art Fair, Islington. A busman’s holiday for the staff of Jack House Gallery (all two of us), a day looking at pictures is always a joy especially when punctuated by stop at Fredericks for roasted cod with clams. And yes it was free. The art was good too, in particular Christos Venetis’s mysterious little graphite drawings on old book covers at Tint and Juiliane Hundertmark’s hilarious paintings like family snaps gone madly wrong at Knight Webb. A special mention to Enitharmon Editions for services to art and literature. Beautiful books. I know from experience how tough art fairs are to work so it was good to be a punter on a wet cold January day.

Back at JHG the first stage of the electrical work is done, the radiators are in and Len the plasterer has done such a lovely job it’s almost a shame to hang pictures on these walls! Floors next…
