From Monday 5th March, we’ll be heading over to sunny Solihull, to present our latest Curator Showcase event.
We’re pitching up in the very prestigious Touchwood shopping centre, where you’ll be able to browse our extensive collection first hand, including artwork from Tessa Houghton, Adam Barsby, Paul Wright, Paul Bennett, Josie McCoy and many more. It’s a great opportunity to see original artwork that you just can’t find anywhere else, and equally a chance for many people to see great art up-close in their own home town often for the first time – totally free of charge.
As much as we love the web and do everything we can to enhance your ability to view art here at Curator, it’s very hard to express just how much more impressive artwork is when you see it for real. Enjoy the sense of scale, texture and intense colour that real life artwork brings, and on-screen viewing sadly will never match. There’s just no way to replicate that incredible sense that comes with seeing an original piece – worked on for many hours, days or weeks, and full of emotion and personality conveyed by its creator through every individual mark.
At the Showcase, we’ll have experienced, knowledgeable staff at hand to answer questions about the artists in our collection, to talk to you about finding that perfect piece of art for your home, and to give you any assurances on delivery or our returns promise that you might have. David, our company founder, will also be available to talk to directly if you’d like to know more about the ideas behind Curator, our plans for 2012, and our vision for revolutionising the art world! In fact, we’d love the opportunity to talk to you about them and get your opinions too.
Adam Barsby will be painting live on several days of the show (individual times to be announced), where you’ll get a chance to see him work on brand new pieces of art from start to finish, get insider knowledge on the techniques used by professional artists, and an open, informal opportunity to ask questions and get straight-up answers directly. Adam’s work is great to watch as you’ll see him progress at lightening speed, making rapid decisions about placement, form and colour, while keeping the bigger picture in check (excuse the pun!). He’s also a lovely chap and really enjoys talking to art enthusiasts and those who’ve never owned a piece of art alike – so don’t be afraid to introduce yourself.
You’ll find us in the Map Room at Touchwood, a large central area flanked by Costa Coffee, Dwell and Yo! Sushi.
