Could it have anything to do with the opening of the City Gallery opposite their Copthall Street headquarters by my favourite gallery owner, Kate Dawson, and her beautiful assistant, Catherine Ainscogh? The pair sell contemporary art to City types who are too busy to keep rushing to the West End. With most galleries offering a meagre diet of huntin' and shootin' prints, their modern works are a welcome change.
In March they plan an exhibition of work by Royal Academicians. The fight for invitations has already begun.
