ORGAN PREVIEW: The Winter edition of London’s West End Gallery Hop happens this Friday evening…

“Join in the final art celebration of 2021” say the Mayfair Art Weekend people, “The Winter West End Gallery HOP! on Friday 10 December Presented by MAW and Art of London”

The gallery Hops are rather good although how you’re expected to get into the West End and get anywhere near seeing most of it in just two hours is a question, do wish they’d stretch until 9pm like most gallery openings do, but hey, it is a bit much of us to complain, entry is free and there is a glass or wine or two on offer., mostly there’s always a hell of a lot of good art to explore in one compact area of London.. 

“Galleries are offering you one last chance to celebrate the incredible year of art we have had with the Winter edition of the West End Gallery HOP! taking place on Friday 10 December”. Has it really been an “incredible” year? Difficult year maybe? Lot of green washing maybe? Heads buried in sand and I;m not sure it has been great for the smaller artist-led underground back street gallery side of things? I guess the West End and Cork Street has been revitalised and the moneyed-up establishment have had a decent enough year. The Hop is a good thing, lots of co-ordinated late evening gallery openings and do they have the green balloons so you can spot the participating galleries like they do in the Summer?  

There are curated tours all taking place during the Hop, “Keep an eye out for our map later in the week, as well as our recommended walking trails, special events, and an exciting update on the Mayfair Gallery Publication Award”We have curated guided tours for you to have the VIP experience. There is a tour to suit everyone, whether it is contemporary, modern or even old masters, each tour is totally unique. We are delighted to be collaborating with fantastic guides: arts industry professionals Lucy Scovell and Seb Summers; experienced museum guides Nadia Lawlor and Alexandra Abraham; and former Mayfair Art Weekend volunteers Claire Sanford, Alessandra Maragna and Veronika Zeleznaja”.

See the tour details here, we’re told  limited spaces available so don’t miss out!

This all comes at the end of London Art Week – – London Art Week (LAW) is a major showcase of the best that the art market has to offer, with a focus on ancient antiquities to modern, from leading galleries and auction houses. Led by a flagship Summer event, with a second week of events and exhibitions in the Winter, LAW aims to offer the very best paintings, drawings, sculpture and object. More info.
