The Gibraltar Culture & Heritage Agency, as part of its development programme, says that Gibraltar House in London and the Culture Agency have collaborated with Clarendon Fine Art, a prestigious art gallery in Mayfair, for an exhibition of works by Gibraltarian and Gibraltar-resident artists.

The selection of works by Gibraltar artists took place last weekend. A total of 135 works were submitted for selection, of which 42 were selected, representing 18 artists. The selection was carried out by Rachel Simkiss, Director of Clarendon Fine Art. All works have been selected as finalists for the Clarendon Art Prize.

The exhibition will be officially opened at a Private Viewing by the Chief Minister, Fabian Picardo, on Tuesday 16th October, and will continue till Saturday 20th October.

Clarendon Fine Art in Dover Street, Mayfair, is dedicated to the presentation of the finest National and International artists, introducing exceptional contemporary art to established and emerging collectors.

Rachel Simkiss said, Having visited Gibraltar for many years I was delighted at the prospect of curating an exhibition of works by Gibraltarian artists at my gallery on Dover Street in Mayfair.

I was so impressed by all of the talent and thank all artists that entered the competition.

“All of the art that I have selected will be on show at the gallery from 16th to 20th October and will be available for sale to all of our clients. From this show, one lucky artist will win the Clarendon Art Prize, a contract with one of the most prestigious art galleries in London, Clarendon Fine Art.”
