Brian Neish

‘White’ Paintings Exhibition

This abstract series is the latest iteration of Brian’s passion for rendering multiple layers of oil colour upon canvas or board, a process he began in earnest back in 2011.
White not only brings a sense of calm to the paintings, it also cleanse them. Grids on the other hand give an opportunity to vary each painting’s ‘look’ and character.

On view at London Contemporary Art Gallery, 32 Store Street
19th July – 11th August 2019
Admission: free

Keng Wai Lee & Marco Araldi


The collaboration between Keng Wai Lee and Marco Araldi is based on the contrast between the techniques used.
Marco uses ink pen and gold creating geometrical patterns and graphic illustrations.
Lee’s technique is in his use of acrylic, he paints subjects taken from nature: flowers, picturesque scenery and birds.

The canvases are gilded in order to give the art work an extra dimension based on light refraction. The two different styles are merged creating a unique amalgamation of hard lines and soft painterly brushstrokes.

Admission free

Brian Bartlett

Featured Artist | 3rd – 27th April 2019


Brian’s paintings can be seen as celebrations of colour which are both decorative and sensual. Colours glow and sing with a vibrancy and sensuality that become expressions of the joy of life.


On view at London Contemporary Art Gallery, Store Street 32 till 27th April 2019

Val Hudson

Store Street is proud to present new collection of paintings by Val Hudson.

Val’s artwork is a combination of oil and wax on canvas which is then scribed into, revealing layers that have gone before.

Val Hudson – trained at St. Martins School of Art – is a painter drawing on a wide spectrum of ideas and influences.
Her paintings present a dreamlike quality of ephemeral spaces punctuated with half seen evocations of memory, experience and sensory imaginings.
The paintings are also imbued with a strong visual presence because of their human scale and strength of colour and composition.

She currently lives in Derbyshire.

VAL HUDSON – featured artist
At Store Street Gallery from 23rd November – 10th December

ONE MAN SHOW – John Butterworth F.R.S.A.

A Collection of Mixed media paintings produced over 20 years

25th September – 3rd October

Private view / Tuesday 25th September / 6 – 8 pm


John’s artistic influences include the work of Kurt Schwitters, Antonio Tapies, Per Kirkeby and Gerhard Richter and like them John relishes the broad use of a variety of materials and processes. His images evolve through a dialogue between the internal idea or source of inspiration and the medium/media used to produce it.
The work therefore becomes an autonomous entity with its own logical coherence with sometimes only a glancing relation to what exists outside its frame.

He mainly uses the media of oil paint, acrylic, watercolour and various print making techniques (including etching and lithography).

John has exhibited widely, both in this country and abroad, participating in two Biennales in Monaco and one in Cleveland, UK. His work is in many public and private collections, including those of Bristol education authority, Kent authority and Hampshire County Council.

John lives and works in Winchester, Hampshire.

Russell Frampton


Russell Frampton is Store Street Gallery’s featured artist for the month June.

He was born in 1961 in Hampshire and educated at Portsmouth and at Exeter Art College (B.A. in Fine Art), later taking his M.A. in Fine Art at the University of Plymouth.

Painter and musician – his nautical, maritime yet still abstract themes are resurfaced in his work mainly because of associations with his childhood, being brought up on the River Hamble.

”Being brought up on the River Hamble within a stones throw from the busy international shipping port of Southampton, The Solent and Cowes as seen from Warsash were formative landscape memories and the regular passage of tankers, passenger ships, ferries and yachts against the backdrop of the flaming refineries at Fawley etched a painterly structure into me”.

Russell is now living in Devon but also makes frequent visits to his house in Brittany.

Catching the Light


Upcoming exhibition at Store Street Gallery
9th April – 6th May 2018
Private View | Thursday 12th April| 6-8pm

Spring is upon us and the days are getting longer. As we enjoy the extra light our artists are busy capturing it with their brushes and transferring it forever to canvas or paper.

Bill Bate, Mike Hall, Theo Platt, David Walker and Claire Wiltsher are going to show their unique way of ‘catching the light’ not only as a subject, but as a structural essence of painting.

Flourishing Growth


20 Asian Artists In Their 20’s Spectacle

Zhiqing Yang and Naidi Jiang proudly present the 20 artists together sharing their very individual perspective of the self and the physical world.

“Artists in their 20’s graduating from institutions are at their growing season. Rooted in a similar culture and educated in a different environment, these young asian artists developed various paths of interests and expression. The world, either nature or urban landscape is the fertiliser, the young generation stretch their rhizome deeply and firmly into the ground and eagerly absorb for their flourishing. They are the generation of here and now.”

The 20 Asian artists from University Arts of London and Royal College of Arts together present their recent works.

Hebe Yang’s mix media work Collage Painting 2017 focuses on pure shape, form elements and techniques. Similarly, focused on the theme of ‘ruin’, the South Korean artist Won Young Chang’s painting Soft 2017 is of shape, shades and marks.

Some built the relation between their artistic selves and nature.

Angela Tonglet’s Atlantis 2017 closely binds to the very nature of the world, while Ning Jin’s Neglected Nature 2017 seeks for the signs of nature in an urban environment.

Others are very self-aware, and their work usually centres around the artist’s subjective perspective through their experience. Yunhan Chen’s Struggle of Quit Smoking 2017 is the mental self portrait of the artist’s struggle through the attempt to quit smoking.

15 – 21 February 2018

Private View: 17 February 6pm – 8pm
