I have met Lucy Powell years ago in painting classes. She was always a very good painter but in recent year she has progressed even forward by following more classes and experiment fearlessly, and her work has become bolder and more free. Lucy, together with the painter Annie Field, is showing her work this week at The Studio, 73 Glebe Place, London. Just off the Kings Road, the show will be open until the 21st of May from 11 to 7pm.
Adele Wagstaff has been painting the Rehearsal Orchestra for many years now. The paintings and drawings she has produced in this period are now on display at St. John’s Waterloo, Waterloo Road, London SE1 8TY until the 5th of June ( 10 to 6 closed on the 26th of May).
Daniel Shadbolt is showing a large number of works at 286 Gallery in Earl's Court. Daniel is a very sensitive and dedicated painter whose work is gaining increasing recognition. Having had the privilege of seeing him painting in a number of occasions I admire how he is always ready to make changes, some times radical ones, painting with relentless concentration and energy.
The show "New Paintings" will run from the 10th to the 30th of June at Gallery 286, Earl's Court Road.
Kim Scouller and David Caldwell are currently showing together at the Caledonian Club in Belgravia. I have been following Kim for a while and I enjoyed the show very much, I particularly liked her self portraits. Her fellow Scot David Caldwell is showing a series of beautifully observed and lyrical London landscapes. The show is open until the 8th of June at 9 Halkin Street, Belgravia.
