Finding inspiration in Abstract Art

November 2015 we are launching our new project ‘HYG Editions’ with an exhibition of new and unseen works from 8 artists who have collaborated with us in the past. The pieces include limited edition prints, selected drawings and collage work, and will be available for a limited amount of time only.

The exhibition – which is running parallel to ROOMS Magazine`s programmed show ‘ The Decline of Conscience’ by Nick JS Thompson  – ties in with the Gallery`s 4th anniversary.

This is our opportunity to say thank you to artists who have supported the Hundred Years Gallery over the last four years and to encourage recent entries to engage with the project. The works are a wide selection of new and exciting work by practitioners with a passionate commitment for the arts.
 

'HYG Editions' artists include: Yvonne Yiwen Feng, Hellen Bermingham, Victoria Kovalenko, Mary Lemley, Nick JS Thompson, Lex Thomas, Jaime Valtierra & Rita Says.
