While our gallery doors have been closed during lockdown, we've brought you a whole host of online entertainment, including our virtual Stuart McAlpine Milller exhibition, 5 Questions With YouTube series and now our painting masterclass with the celebrated landscape artist Lawrence Coulson.
Filmed at our state-of-the-art Mailbox gallery in Birmingham city centre, this exclusive video takes us behind the scenes of Lawrence's breathtaking art, which has been likened to that of the English Romantic painter J.M.W. Turner. His imaginative and expressive landscapes use light as a central focus, with the lightning in his two new pieces symbolising the sheer power of nature.
These awe-inspiring limited edition prints also feature his tiny figures, which add another narrative to the countryside and coastal scenes. Hand-signed by Lawrence, the high-quality canvasses have been hand-varnished by our specialist atelier team and framed in a sustainable pine with a metallic finish that highlights the inner glow of the works. In a rare opportunity, the original artwork Lawrence painted live, 'Daylight Dissolves', is also available.
With our galleries set to open on Monday 12th April (England and Wales), and Monday 26th April (Scotland), we're busy planning an exciting programme of events and exhibitions, plus refreshing our gallery displays with all of our latest art. If you'd like to find out more about our newest releases in the meantime, subscribe to our emails or contact us.
When we asked our gallery staff what they missed most while working during lockdown, the answer was unanimous: our collectors! Although we're still available via phone, email, video and for our free click and collect service, there's nothing quite like meeting our collectors at the gallery.
Gallery manager, Danny Wigley, told us: "It was an honour to have Lawrence at the gallery for his painting masterclass – I think we all learnt a few tricks! We can’t wait to open our doors and welcome everyone inside our gallery for more exciting events in the future."
