Fused Glass - No paint Was Used In The Making of This Artwork
Alec Makinson's was here at the Lincoln gallery in June and he brought some fantastic artworks with him! It was great fun to chat with Alec and find out about the exacting process of working with glass to create recognisable landscapes with stunning colours when you have to kiln the piece at least three times and each time it's liable to react differently! Work by Alec is still available so pop and take a look at his masterpieces for yourselves.
Salvador Dali and his 'Immortals of Art'
“Immortals of Art” Series, produced 1968
Printed by the Collector’s Guild in New York City
The ‘Immortals of Art’ are a series of etchings produced by Dali in 1968. An etching is typically created when a metal plate is drawn upon and then treated (usually with acid) so that incised lines become pronounced. Ink is then applied and the plate is pressed with immense pressure against paper to produce an image. Albert Field states in “The Official Catalogue of Graphic Works of Salvador Dali” that this series consisted of 15 etchings: ‘Pegasus’, ‘Narcissis’, ‘Telephone Mou’, ‘Rhinocerus’, ‘Mantre Molle’, ‘Elephant’, ‘Mercure’,‘Leonardo da Vinci’, ‘Michelange’, ‘Picasso’, ‘Chagall’, ‘Rembrandt van Rjin’, Van Gogh’, ‘Toulouse-Lautrec’ and ‘Autoportrait’. This run of etchings was published by the Collector’s Guild in New York City. They originally put out an edition of 150 of numbered and hand signed etchings before having Dali add his name, “pour G.C” (or for Collectors Guild) and 1968 to the plate for printing. Dali was doing this backwards and hastily hence why in many of the images his signature and these details are difficult to read.
We are lucky enough to have four pieces from this series - "Rembrandt van Rjin", "Van Gogh", "Leonardo da Vinci" and "Toulouse-Lautrec". Each pieces comes with a gallery certificate of authenticity. These are great examples of Dali that capture not only Dali but his views of other great masters. While these were produced in quantity in 1968 very few complete sets still exist and the pieces are rare to come to the open market. It is also worth noting that these are etchings from 1968 not printed reproductions. And as with all works from the great masters they are only increasing in rarity!

Keith Drury's Lincoln Launch
Artist to the stars and royalty - Keith Drury came to The Little Red gallery in November! Keith Drury Art Ltd was honoured to have had the opportunity to present a limited edition London Way artwork to HRH Princess Anne in London in April 2016 and recently Keith's artwork appeared in the TV series 'The Fall' with Gillian Anderson also. As an art style it is unquestionably quirky and contemporary in its interpretation of the urban landscape. Each artwork is created with meticulous attention to detail, so the artworks often yield surprises to those who are eagle eyed or use magnifying glasses! All of Keith's work is created at Woodstone Studios located in a small forest in the heart of County Down.
Keith created a Lincolnshire based pictures for his launch and show with us in November. You can take a look at some of Keith's modelling and the Red Arrow he created for his Lincoln piece by clicking here!
It was a really fabulous show where we sold out of Keith's 'Lincoln Way' twice in the weeks following! Limited editions are always available to order so come get yours before they are completely sold out!
NORTHERN ART AND L.S. LOWRY
L.S. Lowry - Market Scene, Northern Town
Following on from the success of our 'Modern Masters' exhibition last year we put together a showcase of Northern Art featuring the quintessential Northern Artist - Lawrence Stephen Lowry. We had a variety of work by Lowryin to view and a number of contemporary artists inspired by him, sitting alongside. This including a rare limited edition by John D. Wilson, an original Leigh Lambert and work by David Cowden and John Ormsby. We were so excited to be able to put this incredible exhibition together and show off this amazing selection of artwork for everyone to come and share with us!
While most of the work is gone now, we do still have a selection of signed and unsigned Lowry prints available as well as access to a whole range of other pieces that can be brought in upon request!
