• Update on the exhibition Patrick Procktor: The Last Romantic. With additional gallery space available, the show I am curating for Arts University Bournemouth is now to be expanded. I have recently had confirmation of loans of important works by the artist from the collections of The Arts Council and Imperial War Museum. There will also be substantial loans from private collections and from the artist’s estate. Many of the works in the show have not been publicly exhibited for many years.
• Two excerpts from my recently published essay on Alice Mumford are now on this website, along with a slideshow of photographs of the artist’s paintings from her recent Belgrave St Ives exhibition.
