This is Women’s Work! Pop-up Art Show in Chelsea

Stella Tooth painting Art Dealer Roger Baresel in The Chelsea Art Gallery

This is Women’s Work! is a new pop-up show at the Chelsea Art Gallery in Sloane Square.  All works are by women, and all are at the affordable end!

"“What unites these artists is that they are affordable.  At The Chelsea Art Gallery we hope to create art buyers out of people who love art but have been put off by prices. We want everyone to be able to own a piece of art that is distinctive and has meaning for them. Here you get a choice - and there's something for everybody."
The art on show includes narratives of street life around Sloane Square by Lucille Cranwell, linocuts of London’s landmarks by Jenny Ing, and drawings of farm animals by Imogen Man.
“When considering the subject matter of women's art, you might think: mother & baby, flowers, home life and the odd seaside trip. In fact, women's art has a frame of reference as wide as the great outdoors. Their unique reaction is visible in their work, which embraces the human experience in virtually every respect,” Barasel said.
The work of all the artists is accessible both in terms of style and price, with prints ranging from £40 unframed to £490 framed and original paintings from £200 on unframed stretchers to £3,000 framed. 
And for those interested in commissioning a portrait of a friend, a family member or even themselves, portrait artist, Stella Tooth, will providing insight into what’s involved, by starting a painting from life of Roger Baresel in the gallery on Saturday, 24th November.  The painting will go on show in the gallery when completed. 
Baresel said, “Women artists have been at the back of the shop too long!  Taking the lid off women’s painting has released a tidal wave of creativity - and revealed some highly collectable artists.”
The artists featured are:  Natalya Avdeeva, Noel Barker, Jane Bristowe, Sopho Chkhikvadze, Corinna Button, Lucille Cranwell, Jenny English, Rebecca Fontaine-Wolf, Jane Hall, Jean Harvey, Jennie Ing, Imogen Man, Lana Okiro, and Stella Tooth "
