The events are as follows:
Saturday Mayfair art tours
From January 18 2014 Brown’s Hotel will be hosting exclusive weekly Saturday morning art tours introducing art lovers to hundreds of private shows (many yet unseen) that collectively make Mayfair one of the world’s greatest art destinations. Guests will discover that London’s art world takes place not only at street level in galleries in Cork Street, but also behind the doors of magnificent period townhouses and in upstairs ‘appointment only’ offices and studies.
Each week a different participating gallery director or art dealer will take guests on a personal tour of some of their favourite Mayfair shows and galleries. The tour begins at Brown’s Hotel, home itself to numerous notable art works by artists including Tracey Emin, Mat Collishaw, Bridget Riley and Michael Landy.
It is hoped that by drawing attention to the significant cultural and economic impact provided by Mayfair’s galleries, the hotel’s initiative will encourage the preservation of the galleries in Mayfair and maintain the area’s unique status on the global cultural stage.
The Brown’s Saturday Art Tour is open to all, and costs £60 per person and includes:
Coffee/tea in The Library at Brown’s Hotel on arrival (10.30am - 11am)
Tour of 4 galleries in the surrounding Mayfair area, guided by one of the principals of the partaking galleries.
Set 3 course lunch in HIX Mayfair following the art tour at approximately 1pm (excluding wines)
Numbers are limited to 8 guests per art tour so advance booking is recommended.
