Drinks at the Fleming Collection, November 2010.
Notice for the Event (First published 2010)
Now that the nights are drawing in and the trees are ablaze with the golds and russets of autumn I have the great pleasure of announcing that the other highlight of this season of mists and mellow fruitfulness, the Annual Drinks Party, will take place at the Fleming Collection on Monday November 15th, 2010 from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm.
This year the Gallery is presenting a very special exhibition, a feast for art-lovers and of enormous appeal to everybody with an interest in Scottish culture. THE GLASGOW BOYS show consists of fifty paintings, some rarely seen in public, and features the work of Sir James Guthrie, George Henry and Sir John Lavery among others. The exhibition complements Pioneering Painters :The Glasgow Boys 1880-1900, which can be seen around the corner at the Royal Academy.
As ever, the highlight of the evening will be the conducted tour of the exhibition, with expert comment and analysis from one of the team at the Fleming Collection. But there will also be live music, a tempting selection of sandwiches and sausage rolls, the choicest wines, and relaxed conversation with friends old and new. And all for £25 per head.
For those who are yet to sample the Annual Drinks Party, the Fleming Collection is situated at 13, Berkeley Street, W1, just off Piccadilly, and the nearest underground station is Green Park (Jubilee/Piccadilly/Victoria Lines) only 3 minutes walk from the Gallery. Come out of the station on the north side of Piccadilly and turn left, then take the first left into Berkeley Street and the Fleming Collection is only a hundred yards down on the right hand side. Don’t hesitate to bring wives, partners, friends or guests: we’ll be delighted to welcome them to the party.
