There are many galleries in the Quarter for art-lovers to get their culture fix, why not take a look around while on lunchbreak or visit at weekends.
The Wallace Collection on Manchester Square is famous for its permanent collection of fine and decorative works, including The Laughing Cavalier by Frans Hals and The Swing by Fragonard. See the highlights here plus details of its current exhibition open until October, Inspiring Walt Disney: The Animation of French Decorative Arts. There are also regular events, workshops and talks throughout the year, check their What’s on page.
67 York Street gallery has a changing programme of exhibitions, their current exhibition until 10 September is Our New Window by the Spanish artist Armando Seijo. The paintings were inspired by Google Street View as a window onto landscapes and street scenes, with reflection on the abrupt Ukraine war, political volatility, altered circumstances and visions.
The Gallery of Everything on Chiltern Street is a quirky space with a current exhibition until 18 September entitled Zooooo! The exhibition features 50 artists each celebrating the wonderful world of animals, and has been specially curated to appeal to children under the age of 10 but may be equally appreciated by the young at heart!
Atlas Gallery on Dorset Street has an exciting new exhibition opening on 12 September – Moonage Day Dream celebrating the life and work of David Bowie as Ziggy Stardust, through wonderfully evocative photography. You can also see the new-for-2022 David Bowie / Ziggy Stardust figure at nearby Madame Tussauds in their special Music Festival exhibition.
