Brook welcomes Brit Art icons to Budleigh

Renowned names from the British art world joined the team to launch the Brook’s major Christmas exhibition, The Coriander Studio Show. This ‘blockbuster’ of an exhibition opened on 9 December 2009 and runs to 10 January 2010.

The guest list for the private view on Tuesday 8 December included names from the British Art elite such as Brendan Neiland, Brad Faine, Bruce McLean and Sir Peter Blake.

World renowned for its techniques in silkscreen and digital printing, The Coriander Studio’s reputation was honed in the 60s. Now under the direction of Brad Faine, the 500 or so international artists with whom he works are a roll call of Britain’s best, many of which are included in this stunning exhibition. The Brook is also thrilled to be given the opportunity to exhibit for the first time anywhere, two absolutely gorgeous brand new pieces by Damien Hirst – a real coup for an independent gallery.

The exhibition will take your breath away with other works by John Hoyland, Gary Hume, Michael Craig Martin, Maurice Cockrill, Sir Terry Frost, Tom Phillips and Storm Thorgerson, all beautifully and passionately printed by Coriander Studio Ltd. British art and its icons are truly celebrated at this exclusive Christmas show and this last exhibition of the year, truly sets the standard for yet another exceptional 12 months of art in 2010.
