After thirty seven years consistent trading from our building here in Battersea, we are temporarily closing, to carry out major renovation and development work, and will be closing the doors after business hours on Saturday 7th February 2015.

We plan to re-open the gallery at the beginning of May and to celebrate the new space at the Preview of our Annual Exhibition of Folk Art 7th May.

So once we return from Exhibiting in New York, we will be sorting through a professional lifetime's worth of stock, reference materials, fixings and clutter, before we all move over to run the office from our Design Studio nearby.

During the works, we plan to increasingly use our Website and Social Media to keep you all informed of our new acquisitions, movements and progress.

This is an exciting moment in our story and we look forward to exploring the extraordinary potential and possibilities of running a “virtual business” during the building project.

Our website and internet presence have played an increasingly significant part in our development and we will now have a little more time to concentrate on them.

At the same time, we have noticed increased traffic and business at the Gallery during 2014, partly due to the Tate Britain’s first National Exhibition of British Folk Art and also possibly because of the rapid development of the Battersea Design District and the new Royal College of Art Dyson and Woo buildings in our immediate neighbourhood.

However, we also feel a genuine change in the air, we have noted a growing interest in the works we show, particularly from a younger generation, and believe that it is the right time to invest in the future and create an environment that will continue to be inspiring to visit.

We are finalising plans for our exhibition at the Winter Antiques Show and fly to New York City at the end of next week.

This will be our fifteenth consecutive year at this prestigious show and we are excited to be participating again.

America’s oldest and most respected Antiques Show is held in the Seventh Regiment Armory on Park Avenue and showcases leading specialist American and International dealerships.

It is an inspiring way to start our year and we look forward to installing our collection of recent acquisitions.

We hope to see many of our friends and clients again this year and to introduce ourselves to those of you we have not yet met.
