In as­so­ci­a­tion with the Red­fern Gallery, from Fe­bru­ary 2 to 25, the Fosse Gallery in Stow-on-the-wold (www.fos­segallery. com) will hold its fourth ex­hi­bi­tion of works on pa­per, in­clud­ing lim­ited-edi­tion prints, by Wil­liam Gear (1915–97). Most of the 50 works have never been shown and 29 of his 50 colour­ful, ab­stract screen­prints (one of which, left), pro­duced between 1949 and 1972 are rep­re­sented with prices ris­ing from £500.

South-east of Tower Bridge Road in Ber­mond­sey, an area of post-sec­ond World War stor­age and trans­port fa­cil­i­ties is be­ing colonised by art gal­leries and spa­ces, among them Draw­ing Room in Wil­low Walk (www.draw­ingroom.org.uk). From March 2 to April 26, it will hold a bi­en­nale show and on­line auc­tion of more than 200 works on pa­per by em­i­nent and soon-to-be-em­i­nent con­tem­po­raries. Healthy in­jec­tions of hu­mour in­clude a Quentin Blake-like car­toon by Michael Landy, mock­ing his own de­struc­tion-as-art in­stal­la­tions (right).
