25th Anniversary Exhibition - Part I
6 April 2017 - 6 May 2017
I can scarcely believe that it is twenty-five years since Martin Tinney Gallery first opened its doors in a blaze – well, flicker really – of youthful optimism and not a little naivety. We are all a good bit older now, of course, though perhaps no wiser. As is the nature of these things, it has been a great deal of hard work and a lot of fun. Over the passing years, it has been gratifying to witness the development of the Welsh Art market to the much broader, more vibrant scene of today. To mark the 25th anniversary we are mounting two special exhibitions. The first, as illustrated in an accompanying catalogue, features some of the best pictures that have passed through the gallery over the years by artists who are no longer with us. Some may be for sale.
This exhibition will be followed next month by a selling show of specially selected work by many of the living artists who have exhibited with us over the years, all of whom I would like to thank for their loyalty and support. I would also like to thank my encouraging and supportive clients, many of whom have become great friends. Finally, I have been lucky to have had wonderful staff who have variously tempered my excesses and energised me.
I hope you enjoy the exhibition.
