CB1 Gallery is pleased to present a summer works on paper exhibition, A Few of My Favorite Things, organized by gallery director Clyde Beswick. “For this group exhibition, I wanted to gather work by a selection of some favorite artists, several we represent and others we don’t. The artists in the show range from some whose work I collected beginning in the early ’80s through mid-90s to several recent discoveries,” said Beswick. “Like Maria and Oprah before me, these are a few of my favorite things.” The exhibition, not by any means a complete list of favorite artists, opens on June 30 and closes on August 18, 2013. A reception for the artists will be held at the gallery on Sunday, June 30, 2013, 5 – 7 p.m.

The exhibition consists of works on paper or, more accurately on or using paper in some way, by fourteen artists. Some draw or paint on paper, others collage, fold, cut, burn or weave. For some the paper pieces are, more or less, studies for work in other media; for others their work is exclusively on paper. The entry wall to the exhibition will be dedicated to a jam-packed salon style hanging that might have existed in Beswick’s home had the work shown been included in his personal collection, during his intense collecting days.

Referencing several of the artists in the exhibition, Beswick said, “Karen Carson was one of the first artists whose work I acquired when I moved to LA. A more recent discovery, Emily Davis Adams’ watercolors, brought to my attention by gallery artist Alexander Kroll(whose new work is included too), are also in the exhibition.” Other gallery artists’ work in the show includeLorenzo Hurtado Segovia’s woven paper pieces, drawings by Laura KrifkaLarry Mantello’s temporary tattoos on paper, a new series of collages by Timothy Nolan plus paintings on paper by Jaime ScholnickMira Schor. and Craig Taylor.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
