Philip Sanderson: Places, People and Light. @ Highgate Gallery
Apr 3 @ 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Philip Sanderson  Highgate Hill, oil on canvas.

We are delighted to shows a significant body of work from acclaimed local artist Philip Sanderson, who captures townscapes and other scenes from a wide variety of sources, particularly London and Highgate.  He aims for a lightness of touch and fluidity that is at once engaging and appealing.  At the same time, his work retains a discipline and structure that gives it weight, so that the overall impression is one of beauty and substance.

Philip paints in oils and watercolours and says that he “endeavours to represent subjects in a loose and attractive way”.  His work is particularly concerned with the effect of light, particularly sunlight, and how this gives subtly contrasting tones of light and dark to his subject matter.  He often depicts people in his pictures, representing life and movement and adding another layer of interest and relevance to the familiar local scenes.

For many years an active member of the Highgate Watercolour Group and a participant in art courses and local art shows, Philip also had a career in the NHS, where he was a consultant microbiologist working in Edgware and Barnet.  He studied problems of infections acquired within hospitals and helped to found and edit a journal dedicated to this subject.

This exhibition is an opportunity to see a collection of pictures from the last five years, following a successful exhibition at St. Martin-in-the-Fields.  Most of the works are oils; all work will be for sale.

Exhibition continues until 9 April.

Highgate Gallery open Tuesday-Friday 1-5pm, Saturday 11am-4pm, Sunday 11am-5pm; closed Mondays.

Serenata Presents – Koichiro Honda @ Lauderdale House
Apr 3 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm

Koichiro Honda has started to make inroads into the world of piano recitals and orchestral concerts and is fast gaining a reputation for pianistic excellence. His eclectic choice of pieces reflects his enquiring musical curiosity.  His programmes always include unusual items that educate and arouse interest.

In this recital he will be supported by Duo Serenata (Paul Ellis-Howe & Brian Benedict) who will perform Beethoven and Debussy.

Koichiro (Kou) is a former member of Serenata, performing with the Ensemble on many occasions as soloist and chamber musician.  We are privileged that he has chosen to perform his only London concert this year at Lauderdale House (his favourite London venue) under the auspices of Serenata.

The Serenata group are delighted to have the opportunity to work with Koichiro again and proud to be sponsors of this evening’s recital in this beautiful, historic house.

Admission by numbered tickets available in advance: £15 (£10 concessions), from SERENATA Box Office, 22 Chestnut Avenue, LONDON N8 8NY

Telephone enquiries: 020 8340 2983 (Brian) or 07958 911639 (Paul)
