Some images of the gallery yesterday almost ready.

Although not absolutely ready, I took these images of my ‘Silent Spaces’ show yesterday. The gallery really suits my small intimate mixed media landscapes and I feel privileged to have been offered this exhibition by Alan Kluckow Fine Art.

Gallery Image 5

The main entrance space has a short run of three pieces, then to the right is a run of 9 works towards the back of the gallery.

Gallery Image 2

The exhibition catalogues are on a central table and on shelves at the back wall.

Gallery Image 4

The show has been curated and hung by Alan Kluckow. I got to see my work completely afresh when I walked into the gallery space and saw the hang for the first time.

Gallery Image 3

This run of three can be seen from right up the approach to the gallery, they are the only works in the whole of the front space. The main glazing is on the right and opposite some way away is the main doorway structure. (see previous post).

Gallery Image 1

To the left of the main doorway, is this run of six pieces, with a grouping of four on the returning wall. There are then two vertical pieces just around the corner.

Gallery Image 6

I will be at the show off and on showing people around until May 10th. If you do come, please do say hello. I would love to meet you. Sunningdale is just off the M25 and there is lots of inexpensive parking nearby. The final image below is a bit lower resolution than the others, but it shows the view of the group of three from the door.

I saw my show yesterday afternoon, fully curated and the hanging almost finished. Here is a view through the door into part of the gallery space. There were still a few things to do, absolute alignment and then, at dusk, the lighting details. Very excited to be showing at Alan Kluckow Fine Art. Private view tomorrow! More images to come….

Recent Portrait (2016) for Exhibition Catalogue

NH Portrait 2 B&W 2

As I needed a new up-to-date portrait for the exhibition catalogue’s artist biography, Annie and I decided to go to a place near Bison Hill, as I make some pieces from this position. Annie took this image of me working on a new mixed media piece on an iPad. I like the mix of diagonals made by the tree and the incline. I have attached a landscape (L891, Near Bison Hill, The Chiltern Hills) made from near this spot late last year and which is being exhibited in my show ‘Silent Spaces’ at Alan Kluckow Fine Art. It was a very cold and ferociously windy day when I started making this. The noise the wind made as it blew up and across the escarpment was almost deafening and so constant that it made working very difficult. It is easy to forget when one looks at work in a gallery or studio, that the one element that is not present is the audible sound of the place itself. My show is called Silent Spaces for many reasons…….

Link to ‘Silent Spaces’ Exhibition Catalogue in iBooks

A number of friends have asked me for a link to the free ‘Silent Spaces’ exhibition catalogue as an iBook. If you are on a Mac device then the link below will take you to an iTunes preview page from which you can then click through to view in iBooks. This will open up a modal window in iBooks and you can then click ‘get’. The catalogue is free. Most users of Apple devices have the iBooks app preloaded. This is the link:

https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/nicholas-herbert-silent-spaces/id1095132416?mt=11

If you are not on a Mac device, then I can email you an ePub file that you can download and open in any reader application that is compatible with the ePub file format. (Adobe Digital Editions for example). Not sure how the file will work on Microsoft devices though as it is really optimised for Apple. Let me know if it is ok or not. Just email me at info@nicholasherbert-drawings.co.uk  Subject line ‘EC ePub Version’

As a last resort you can click on my home page link to the online catalogue which is a PDF file. Ideally ‘save as’ and download to your desktop as a .pdf file and then open it in Adobe Acrobat Reader and set view to ‘two pages up’ so it mimics the spreads in the printed version. Or simply scroll through it on the webpage.

Hope that all makes sense. Best wishes, Nicholas.
