    I am such a fan of peering at artworks so let me take you on a jaunt of some of my fave gallery haunts. I’m going to start in Soho, with a little triangle of galleries: first to Amanda Wilkinson’s new show of Oisin Byrne’s vibrant & joyful studies. Next let’s pop just up the road to see ‘Far From Anything’, a solo show of soft and languid watercolour & charcoal portraits by William Brickel at The Artist Room. A new gallery founded only last year and showing for the first time as part of London Gallery Weekend, I’ve been keeping an eye on their various exhibitions. I’m actually a super fan of Sadie Coles on Kingly Street, who is showing Seth Price’s new works: he combines gestural painting with 3-D computer graphics. Love!

     

    Heading further into the depths of east London an unmissable gallery for a stop off on the way is Modern Art on Helmet Row who have a solo show of Katy Moran’s abstract daubs which we are living for. It’s all about the intention of stroke I always say. 

     

    Arriving swiftly at the nearly-neighbouring galleries off Three Colts Lane let’s peruse Herald Street showing Michael Dean’s exhibition 'Jungle is massive'. And then let’s savour the Maureen Paley gallery as I always do & to whom any trip to the East End must include a visit. Maureen is showing Jane and Louise Wilson in both of her spaces: the other, Studio M, is in the winning surrounds of the Rochelle School. The exhibition marks the 10 year anniversary of Jane and Louise Wilson’s film The Toxic Camera which reflects upon the Chernobyl disaster.

     

    After taking in all of that, it's on to New Art Projects, with two shows: London-based, Polish-born artist Natalia Janula, and upstairs, work by James Tuitt. 

     

    At this point we’ve found ourselves in the locale of the Bistrotheque so may I suggest a fancy cocktail and lite bite. Then of course just to round the evening off, why not a visit to my local The Glory on Kingsland Road for a night cap!
