Pick of the week
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).
