Today, London is regarded as a crucial centre for worldwide art and the art galleries and art dealers in Mayfair are some of the best in the city. With a variety of art-exhibitions every year showcasing paintings spanning the16th to 20th Centuries, as well as numerous sculptures and rare items for global art collectors who visit Mayfair galleries in search of inspiration. But you do not have to be a collector or indeed know anything about art in order to enjoy the rich offerings of this historic culturally significant district, internationally renowned as a vibrant hub of creativity and craftsmanship, where the worlds of art, fashion and luxury converge. We will at Green Park Underground station and visit six carefully selected privately-owned art galleries and auction houses and share the stories of Mayfair's present and past. It is much easier to maintain safe social distancing at the small galleries because they are rarely crowded, unlike big busy museums, they also change exhibitions often so you will never see the same artworks twice. To ensure the smooth running of this experience, both the host and the guests are obliges to wear a face mask and encouraged to use the hand sanitiser provided by the galleries. No prior knowledge of art is needed; all levels and ages are welcome.
Hi, my name is Julia. I am an art historian, freelance researcher and a founder of www.nejasartwalks.com, a bespoke provider of the art-related experiences in London (IG @nejasartwalks). I previously worked as a Collection Research Assistant at Tate and I am now hosting one of the most successful Art Experiences in London. I currently offer Art Walks at the following London Galleries: Tate Modern, Tate Britain, The National Gallery, Wallace Collection and the privately-owned art galleries and auction houses of Mayfair. My Art Walks will give you an opportunity to learn how to interpret and respond to a broad variety of artwork and artists’ philosophies and enrich your appreciation for arts in general. Ask questions! Get excited! Let's talk about art in a way where no answer is too big, or too small, or too right, or too wrong!
We will meet at the Green Park Underground station and will walk the streets of Mayfair, the internationally renowned, vibrant hub of creativity and craftsmanship; where the worlds of art, fashion and luxury sit side by side. Mayfair is the home of dozens of world class art galleries and auction houses, we will visit 6 of them. Each Art Walk is unique so even if you book twice, you will never see the same art again.
Rest assured, this Experience is totally safe and complies with the government guidance in regards with Covid-19. Most galleries also provide hand sanitiser to the visitors. If in doubt, please bring a facial mask and your own hand sanitiser.
