"While people continue to flock to London's museums and historic houses, the vast majority are unaware of the commercial galleries that offer some of the best free shows in town..."
London Art Week is a major showcase of the best that London's art world has to offer in the area of pre-contemporary art. Led by a flagship Summer event, to which has recently been added a second week of events and exhibitions in the Winter, London Art Week aims to show the very best paintings, drawings, sculpture and objects available on the market, dating from Antiquity to the Twentieth Century. Every year, London Art Week attracts numerous private collectors from around the world, curators from national and international museums, as well as welcoming those who are just curious to learn more. Talks and Events are scheduled throughout the week and Exhibitions are hosted at a wide range of participating galleries and auction houses in historic Mayfair and St.James's; two areas which have long represented the centre of the fine arts trade in London.
