You are invited…CANCELLED

Monday, March 9th, 2020

Unfortunately we have had to cancel the private view, but we still expect the show to take place as scheduled – and you can come along any time from 19th March to 22 April to view it.

Perhaps not the best time to be having an opening, as the whole country could well be in lock-down by then. But I hope there will be no problems in going ahead with this. The hospital main entrance is just across the top of Tottenham Court Road from Warren St station; turn right immediately you enter for the show, which you will have seen through the windows as you walk along to the entrance.

My contribution is 12 panoramic images taken on a number of walks along the Regent’s Canal over the past year as a small celebration of the 200th anniversary of its opening.

If you can come, please RSVP to help planning for snacks and wine etc. But anyone can just turn up at the event – or go and see the show any time until 22nd April.

If you would like to print out the invitation you can download a PDF.

Regents Canal 200

Friday, February 14th, 2020

If you are in London next month you are invited to the private view of the exhibition ‘2020 Vision – Vistas and Views’ at The Street Gallery, University College Hospital, 235 Euston Road, London, NW1 2BU. The gallery is along an area at the front of the hospital – turn right immediately you go through the main entrance – and will be on show until 22nd April 2020.

As well as paintings by Hilary Rosen the show includes a dozen pictures from a project I’ve been working on when I’ve had time over the past year, ‘Regents Canal 200‘.

The Regent’s Canal, which runs from Little Venice on the Paddington Arm of the Grand Union Canal to Limehouse Dock was completed and opened in 1820, 200 years ago this year. There are other, more official, celebrations later in the year but I began this project in complete ignorance of these.

I’ve photographed the Regent’s Canal occasionally over the years since the late 1970s, and have hundreds or probably thousands of pictures from it, both in black and white and colour. But since space is limited in the gallery I will only be showing a small selection of the several hundred colour panoramas I’ve made over the past year.

Please RSVP to Laura Bradshaw – 020 3447 7146 – though you will be welcome anyway, and Hilary and I will be pleased to see you there. If you want to print out a copy of the invitation you can open it as a PDF.
