"EYE OF THE STORM"
As the London 2012 Olympic Games draw near in London, Derek Hare is preparing a body of work entitled, “Eye Of The Storm”, to be exhibited during the first week of the Games.
Inspired in part by the conditions prevailing during a hurricane, when relative calm descends before the eye passes over and the next onslaught begins, the title also expresses a sense of optimism and hope. A difficult economic situation, thousands of unknown visitors in London, set against the very special feeling of anticipation & excitement that is being generated by the Games, make the organisers feel certain that Derek Hare’s dynamic exhibition of oil paintings contains all the elements for a great success.
Gallery 27, Cork Street, London, W1, a regular venue for Derek Hare’s paintings, will again provide the location for this exciting exhibition, open July 30th until August 4th.
To enable visitors to view the exhibition outside normal gallery hours, when many people’s focus will be on the Games themselves, the gallery will be open until 9.00pm each evening, with hosted events planned, as well as Private Views.
The supported charity at this event will be Papworth Hospital, which has been pioneering new ways of treating and curing heart and lung disease for over 90 years. http://www.papworthhospitalcharity.org.uk
After almost half a century of painting, Derek Hare’s work continues to attract a wider and wider audience, the long lasting and ongoing appeal of his paintings being self-apparent. This exhibition will undoubtedly attract further acclaim.
