We are pleased to announce the opening of a new exhibition at The Knapp Gallery, Regents Park featuring the work of Simon Fairless and Elaine Alderson.

Simon Fairless
Simon’s art comes in a variety of styles and is a reflection of feelings and special places that have caught his imagination and stirred strong emotions inside him. Often they're about the feeling of how beautiful the landscape around us is or an emotional response to people and circumstance. Each painting and photograph has its own story to tell and they mean a lot to him. Simon hopes that everyone gets a little something for themselves out of his art, and in a way that's another story personal to them.
