Interested in seeing world-class contemporary art over lunch or after work?
Regent’s Place makes the perfect starting point for a spring stroll through nearby Fitzrovia towards Oxford Street. Long established as a creative hub, Fitzrovia is home to a cluster of well-established and emerging artistic ventures. Our art curator, Rosie Glenn, has been taking a closer look, here’s her suggested route from the office to the West End via amazing art, all free to view and mostly open daily.
First stop, just off Cleveland Street, is Rebecca Hossack Gallery in Conway Street where Barbara Macfarlane’s map inspired works are showcased in Landmark showing now until 1 April. One of Fitzrovia’s longest established residents, Australian born Rebecca Hossack manages a second space in nearby Charlotte Street which is showing Soliloquy, a series of dreamlike and fantasy themed photographs by Queensland artist Toby Burrows on now until 1 April.

At the end Charlotte Street head east for Richard Saltoun Gallery in Great Titchfield Street. Specialising in post-war conceptual and performance art, the Gallery is hosting Integration alone is not enough, a group exhibition to 24 March which looks at the relationship between painting and poetry, literature, sound and typography. Alongside its exhibition programme, the Gallery also produces and publishes a range of monographs of leading British artists.

Next stop is White Rainbow in Mortimer Street. Established in 2014 to display international art with emphasis on current Japanese creative trends, the gallery will be exhibiting Lightness from 17 March, a group exhibition exploring the theme of weightlessness with focus on the ways in which artists combine materials in order to shift the viewers’ perception of the objects presented.
Further South make your way to Margaret Street to Bartha Contemporary which is presenting an exhibition of new work by the celebrated American abstract painter Winston Roeth from 10 March. Founded in 2000, throughout Spring 2017, the Gallery is celebrating 5 years in this Fitzrovia location.
