Feb 21 @ 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

     Highgate Literary & Scientific Institution members will display their work at the ninth Members’ Art Exhibition at Highgate Gallery from 8th to 21st February 2019.

Previous exhibitions, starting in 1996, have been indicative of Highgate’s vibrant artistic life.  Artists have shown oils, acrylics, watercolours and pastels as well as prints and drawings.  In addition, photographs, wall hangings and embroideries have featured and we anticipate that the same high standard of work will be submitted for the forthcoming exhibition which will again demonstrate the many and varied talents of our members.

Throughout the exhibition, one of the artists will be on hand to welcome visitors to Highgate Gallery and will be pleased to discuss the pieces on view.  All works will be offered for sale.

The HLSI Members’ Art Exhibition is held every three years and is greatly anticipated by the artists and visitors to the Gallery.  The show is open to all HLSI members – talented amateurs and professionals alike – to submit pieces.

The final choice of works for display is decided by a selection panel.  The panel includes Rose Aidin, Chief Executive of Art History Link Up which facilitates the teaching of Art History on Saturdays at the Wallace Collection and the National Gallery, and Theresa Pateman, artist-printmaker, tutor at Hampstead School of Art and member of Southbank Printmakers Gallery, Printmakers Council, and Printmakers Inc.

Exhibition continues until 21 February.  Highgate Gallery open Tuesday-Friday 1-5pm, Saturday 11am-4pm, Sunday 11am-5pm; closed Mondays.
