Snap up some never-seen-before rare prints at the Brighton gallery.
Lawrence Alkin, owner of the Brighton gallery will host a special event on Friday 15th February to launch a showcase of his rare, personal print collection.
This showcase will be a true representation of how contemporary art has evolved over 25 years, reflecting the gallery's long-standing roots at the forefront of the scene, with many rare works available to buy for the first time in years.
Lawrence has always been renowned for his unique gallery curations, placing established artists next to upcoming talent. His eye for talent has been flexing its muscle since the early ’80s, opening his Brighton gallery in 1989. Since then, the gallery has seen featured urban & street art giants such as Banksy, Obey and Ben Eine become world famous, whilst at the same time documenting the importance of established artists such as Peter Blake, Damien Hirst and Grayson Perry.
Having sold many iconic prints over the years, it’s not a surprise that a few special editions were held back for an exciting day like this. Lawrence’s ‘Rare Prints’ showcase will be a unique and amazing opportunity to snap up some never-seen-before prints at the Brighton gallery.
His philosophy since opening the gallery over 25 years ago remains the same: that art should be accessible to everyone. Lawrence aimed to demystify the art world, enabling enthusiasts to follow their heart when buying artwork. He truly believes that this way of buying makes art last for generations rather than just for interior styling.
We proudly offer the Arts Council’s ‘Own Art’ scheme – a zero-interest payment plan, designed to make buying and collecting art more affordable. With our Brighton gallery being the largest provider of these loans in the UK, Own Art doesn't just make buying art more affordable but allows the enjoyment of curating a personal art collection more realistic and attainable than ever before. What once was a luxury, is now available to everyone.
Lawrence’s Rare Prints Showcase can be viewed at the Brighton gallery between Friday 15th February and Monday 4th March. Register today for your free tickets to our opening evening on 15th Feb. Don’t miss this opportunity to own highly collectable works that have long since sold out or have never been available before.
