Celebrating Alan Davie

8 December 2017 - 30 January 2018

To celebrate the appointment of Alan Wheatley Art as the sole representative of the Estate of Alan Davie on show there is a selection of previously unseen paintings by Alan Davie 

“I don’t practice painting or drawing as an art, in the sense of artifice, of making an imitation of something. It’s something I do from an inner compulsion, that has to come out.”                 
Alan Davie in conversation with Mark Hudson
