Dear Diary

Gallery Seven is delighted to announce that it will be teaming up with anti-poverty youth charity Ctrl.Alt.Shift. to put on the show Dear Diary from May 11. The event supports the work Ctrl.Alt.Shift. are doing with young people in Kenya.

The show will consist of some of the best examples of journal writing you're ever likely to come across. It's a wide spectrum ranging from the intellectual musings of Anais Nin to the angst of Kurt Cobain to a rare collection of the diaries of ordinary people. For those that can't face the idea of reading, the show will also have an audio-visual flavour complete with comfortable seating to heighten the pleasure.

We will also be selling limited edition diaries with a cover design by Alexa Chung and content comprised of the epiphanies of manys a diary keeper.

It'll be a real departure for us but we're excited by the prospect. We hope you are too.

The show will open to the public from May 11 and run until 23rd May.

Gallery Seven Closed for Refurbishment

Alas, it's true.

Don't get too upset, though. 

We will be returning in the Spring of 2010 with some more knock-out shows for your enjoyment.

Until then...

Hanna Melin: Butlins

Gallery Seven is rolling out the red carpet for one of London illustration's most recognisable names as we welcome the brilliant Hanna Melin and her solo show Butlins.

As the title suggests, we're all going on a little holiday. If you've been to Butlins, you'll be expecting something: a load of old rubbish. Well, expect none of that here. Hanna will be looking at the holiday camp through the ages, at their events, their marketing and their patrons and capturing a few holiday scenes in her own inimitable way.

As usual, Hanna will be injecting her own unique twist of humour into the work and as ever the work is original and exclusive to Gallery Seven.

The show opens to the public on October 16th and will run until the end of November.

Jim Stoten Show Extended

Due to the popularity of the outstanding S. O. A. P. , the show will be running until October 9th.

If you haven't been, you're running out of time. Sort your life out and go look see.

Jim Stoten: Menace to Society

If you were among the lucky ones, you'll know what we mean. 

The private view for S. O. A. P. gave rise to what was probably the busiest room in the northern hemisphere since records began and a street that was teeming with fans of Jim's work. Someone should, and probably did, call the council on this young man.

Thanks to all those who came down and made it the night it was. 

For those who missed out, go and see what the fuss is about for yourself. The show runs until Sept 20.
