Cyril Gerber Fine Art

Late August.   Short trip to Glasgow to see Anthony Fry Exhibition at Cyril Gerber Fine Art.

A lovely peaceful journey on the train up to Scotland, my favourite part of the journey anticipated with glee, and it did not disappoint – Berwick upon Tweed – magical scenery of farmland joining great grey sea, cliffs and little secret beaches.

Hotel Blythswood Square, once apparently a brothel, still with red lamps in the windows.   Beautifully designed, luxurious rooms and charming staff

Visit to Jigsaw on Ingram Street.   Manageress Emma, as always, enthusiastic and welcoming.   Cabbages & Roses department, a little sparce, awaiting new winter collection, but what was there looked beautiful.   Extraordinary shop, once a bank, grand and elegant.

Cyril Gerber Fine Art, a lovely gallery at 148 West Regent Street, Glasgow.   Surprised to see so many people attending the opening, old friends and new friends, all beautiful, beautifully dressed – as befits an Anthony Fry show.   The paintings are breathtaking, his work just gets better and better as the red dots testify.   ‘Fry’s work depicts dreamlike landscapes and figurative works, incandescent hues and textures, infused with vivid colour inspired by travels in the exotic subcontinents of India’.   What more can I say? except that I would like to own Hill With Kites!
