2012 has been a year in which Dave Pearson's reputation has been seriously enhanced by an important exhibition in London; the publication of a catalogue containing major essays on his work by the noted art historian and writer Edward Lucie-Smith and others; and coverage of his work by BBC1 TV.
The ‘Works on Paper’ exhibition was a tremendous success and attracted many visitors from all parts of the UK.
Cameron Muir, currently on placement at the gallery has created a short film detailing the works on paper exhibition.
See gallery will work closely with The Dave Pearson Trust and continue to host exhibitions throughout this year and the coming year. We are currently working on Dave Pearson’s ‘Bestiary Series” and as always with Dave’s work it is looking amazing.
The Bestiary work was created between 1988 – 2000 and inspired by interpretations of mediaeval bestiaries, making links between qualities associated with animals (especially predatory) and the human condition.
There are 27 pieces on display, which range in size and are mainly oil on canvas.
Thursdays and Fridays 10 – 4; other times available by appointment
Exhibition opens on the 17th January 2013
Opening event details to follow shortly
