Tonight's the night

Tonight there's the private view at the See and tomorrow the gallery opens for Dave Pearson: Unseen Works. 

I was at the gallery last night titling and pricing the pieces. Julian and Jackie have made a wonderful job of selecting and displaying the work. They have been almost totally responsible for selecting the work in the exhibition and it really is nearly all previously unshown. Generally the pieces chosen don't belong to any of Dave's main series of work, so there are a lot of surprises. Some of the pieces have only been uncovered within the past week or two as I've been moving things around in the store or studio. 

What has been a particular revelation is how framing and displaying has shown just how special some of the work on card or board is - work that I had previously seen simply as sketches or minor preparatory pieces.
