ORGAN THING: An East London Gallery Crawl? Don’t know about that but “Somewhere I have never travelled, gladly beyond” is well worth catching at Nicoletti Contemporary…

Apparently last Friday evening something called the East London Gallery Hop (or some such thing along those lines) happened, it went on through the weekend, you wouldn’t really have known about it though, publicity was not exactly flowing freely.
