Linda Green features in the Godfrey & Watt Christmas Exhibition 2023
'Linda's new work 'On The Move' exemplifies her precise way of working and her uninhibited approach to breaking the rules remaining unstifled by the constraints that technique can sometimes impose. Woven fragments integrate with drawing, blurring boundaries between visual languages. Fluidity of movement, change in tempo, offer a hint of mystery.

Linda Green, recently featured
in the ‘Ten Years of Past Masters’ exhibition at the Scottish Gallery
We are pleased to announce that our artist, Linda Green, has recently been featured in the ‘Ten Years of Past Masters’ exhibition at the Scottish Gallery in Edinburgh.

Her artwork was created in collaboration with the Dovecot Studios in 2010 and in connection with her colour consultancy work for The Maggie’s Cancer Care Centre in Edinburgh.

The colours in Linda’s design were painstakingly colour matched by Dovecot Master Weaver Douglas Grierson to create the desired effect. The carefully spaced dots are typical of Linda’s wider interests in order, random processes, and geometry.

The piece has been sold.

‘We Have Been Deeply Shaken’: 92 Museum Leaders Release Statement Addressing Climate Actions That Target Works of Art
Following weeks of increasingly frequent actions by climate activists targeting works of art in museums around the world, the National Committee in Germany of ICOM, the International Council of Museums, has issued a statement to address the vandalism.

‘In recent weeks, there have been several attacks on works of art in international museum collections. The activists responsible for them severely underestimate the fragility of these irreplaceable objects, which must be preserved as part of our world cultural heritage. As museum directors entrusted with the care of these works, we have been deeply shaken by their risky endangerment.'

Her Majesty The Queen 1926-2002
Out of respect for Her Majesty The Queen.

She was the embodiment of positive human values: loyalty, integrity, respectfulness, optimism, politeness and perseverance.

A true and committed life lived and we thank her for her service and dedication to our country. An unwavering promise held since her inauguration - a promise she kept for seventy years.

God Rest the Queen. Long live the King.

‘Fat Finger’ Errors or Bad Investments?
Mistakes happen! It just seems they happen more often when it comes to Bored Apes.

We hear a lot about major NFT sales where the prices go up and the seller makes lots of money. But in the past few months, many NFTs have sold for way less than what they were bought for. The crypto markets have plummeted, taking NFT sales down with them. But in contrast to fungible tokens — that is, cryptocurrencies — the NFT market is a lot harder to decipher, and trades on individual NFTs often carry their own stories.

For the moment, however, a number of art events, including major biennials and triennials, as well as must-see exhibitions around the world, are sticking to their opening dates and preparing to showcase art and culture to the world in 2022.

At Frieze London, the Art World Inches Toward Normalcy
The fairs, exhibitions and auctions of “Frieze Week” are in-person events once more. But the art world has changed, and so has Britain.

In London, Frieze visitors were required to wear wristbands proving Covid vaccination. They were also required to wear masks, but many didn’t, and enforcement was lax.
