Rankin’s Glenarm Estate rib-eye steak with garlic scapes, Mat Collishaw’s flame-d duck with New Forest cherries, and Tracey Emin’s birthday cake are just some of the items on a sumptuous Hix and the Artists all day dining menu, created by chef patron Mark Hix in collaboration with the young British Artists whose works hang in his eponymous restaurant HIX Mayfair.
This is just some of the goodies that awaits all art aficionados and newbies at the second Brown’s London Art Weekend taking place in Mayfair and St. James’s from 3rd – 5th July 2015. The event has been devised by Brown’s Hotel, situated on Albemarle Street to boost the fortunes of the many galleries that surrounds it. The area has always been a popular choice for art collectors, gallery owners and artists but now seeks to attract new clients who might otherwise not visit. The event also kickstarts London Art Week with free gallery tours, walks, talks, and exhibitions.
Each participating gallery will be open from 11am – 5pm on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th July 2015, each hosting talks. Guests are advised to sign up to attend talks at www.londonartweekend.co.uk. A large team of volunteers will be on hand to help visitors navigate their way between the discrete upstairs salons of old master dealers to the cavernous white halls of the leading contemporary galleries and auction houses, and whilst it will prove almost impossible to take in everything on offer, there will be a series of suggested themed routes and formal tours from Brown’s Hotel.
