Gallery Collection: New Acquisitions

Stanley Picker Gallery Collection

The Stanley Picker Gallery has now acquired new works from some of its recent Fellows, including artists Elizabeth Price (Fellow 2005) and David Austen (2008), the design-collective public works (2006) and the illustrator Sara Fanelli (2007), to add to its growing collection of works on paper. All works in the collection have been generously donated by Stanley Picker Fellows as well as other artists and designers associated with the Gallerys programme.

Many of these works are now on public display across Kingston University. The Universitys River House headquarters, at 53-57 High Street, has an extensive selection of pieces reflecting the Fellowships 34 year history, including a painting by Jeremy Henderson (the first Stanley Picker Fellow in 1977) and the above new acquisition by Sara Fanelli, based upon her exhibition 6 Characters in Search of an Author. Two vibrant collages by the Spanish design-duo El Ultimo Grito (2005) are also currently exhibited in the Faculty of Art, Design & Architectures main Faculty office entrance.
