Last night was the private view of ‘ALL THE DEAD DEARS’ at WW Gallery and a fine night it was too.

The exhibition curated by Sarah Gillham & Mindy Lee – an exhibition of drawing, painting, sculpture and print by Ross Chisholm, Sarah Gillham, Mindy Lee, Emma Talbot & Sarah Woodfine, is the first in a new programme of exhibitions guest-curated by prominent artist/curator duos, which will continue throughout 2013 at WW Gallery.

The night was crowned by fine company and the great cocktails supplied by the wonderful WW’s!

‘All the Dead Dears’ continues till 15 December 2012.
