Spectrum Fine Art launches Artists and the City November 2004

Spectrum Fine Art launches its second exhibition Artists and the City on Wednesday 10th November 2004 at Spectrum Fine Art, 77 Great Titchfield Street, London W1.

The gallery’s desire to showcase emerging talent from across the UK manifests itself in its second exhibition, Artists and The City, which presents three young artists gathered together to create an innovative view of the world around us, presenting timeless and traditional city images with a distinctive contemporary twist.

Artists and the City exhibits the 2004 Hunting Prize Young Artist of the Year Marco Amura, whose images of London and New York are almost exclusively in screen print. Amura will be exhibited alongside Glaswegian Brian Love, short listed for the 2002 BP Portrait Award, who works in pastel & oil with remarkable dexterity and Richard Tait, a traditional painter whose body of work focuses on London’s square mile.

The mission of Spectrum Fine Art is to bring the work of a new generation of artists to the public - providing a springboard for newly graduated talent and a space designed for the beginnings of a completely different kind of arts community, one which offers an alternative to disinterested super collectors and stifling arts cliques.

September 2004 saw the gallery launched with the Artists of Fame and Promise exhibition, where the best new graduates from national art schools, including Kim Rugg and Sam St Leger, shared exhibition space alongside internationally-renowned contemporary artists such as Andy Warhol, Eduardo Paolozzi and Peter Howson. Artists and The City provides a similar range of subject and talent, but provides a more specific focus on the routine and everyday nature of city life. The gallery received much attention for its September launch event which was billed as London’s only “Anti-Fashion Week Party”.

Spectrum Fine Art - People

David Roberts - Founder

David Roberts is a committed patron to the UK arts scene. Glasgow-born Roberts’ development has been matched by his ability to collect and as a result his support for the gallery stems from personal fulfillment placed above financial return. These high ideals relieve Spectrum Fine Art of the financial constraints and pressures which stifle creative shows at other West End gallery spaces and dictate exhibition policy. From its launch in 2004, Spectrum Fine Art will remain committed to supporting graduates and young professionals at early stages in their career, alongside their more established peers.

Benn Linnell – Director

The launch of Spectrum Fine Art in September 2004 marked the fruition of nearly two years work for gallery director Benn Linnell. Benn Linnell studied drawing at RWA and attended Liverpool School Of Art, where he was awarded The John Moores Painting Fellowship. During his time in Liverpool, Linnell became increasingly interested in developing the mechanisms in place for public arts display in the city, and he organized annual breakthrough exhibitions in the city. After these successes, Linnell transferred the innovation within the public sphere into the commercial sector. After running a successful national gallery, Linnell set in motion the plans which have led to the opening of Spectrum Fine Art
