Regent's Canal: Reflections on Urban Water
A New Exhibition of Paintings by Valerie Irving
Opening 23 October 2014
In Regent's Canal: Reflections on Urban Water Valerie Irving records a fascination not only with the subtle varieties of surface according to weather and light, the movement of barges and wildlife, but also with the looming architectures - built at different times and for different purposes - that fringe this section of water from Broadway Market to Mare Street.
'... this artificially created product of the industrial revolution, built for commerce, now provides a space for nature in a city, many of whose rivers now flow underground...' - Valerie Irving.
Regent's Canal: Reflections on Urban Water will run from October 23 to December 24.
We regularly hold events at our bookshop such as readings and book signings.
