Located on Wimbledon Common and close to the All England Lawn Tennis Club, the Cannizaro House Hotel is London’s only 5* Country House Hotel. Each year it hosts four seasonal art exhibitions. Normally these feature work from multiple artists. Uniquely, the Cannizaro’s ten-week Summer Exhibition 2014 is devoted solely to a display of over 75 fine art, limited-edition photographic prints shot by Duncan Grove FRPS. Some are sized over 1.2M square.
Given that the Exhibition opens on 21 June 2014 (the Saturday before the Wimbledon Championships starts on the Monday) it will be no surprise that many of the images exhibited will be of Wimbledon tennis (Duncan’s passion and specialty)! An exhibition of this kind is very rare. Duncan’s images of other sports such as rowing and squash, as well and land and cityscapes will also be showcased.
Duncan comments “I am absolutely thrilled to have my work exhibited at such prestigious venue that is renowned for its celebration and promotion of fine art (as well as its sublime hospitality)! The fact that during The Championships the Cannizaro will be teeming with the great and good from the tennis world is a wonderful opportunity for me to show my work to a wider audience. Wimbledon tennis photography is my passion and I have an enormous respect for the event. Although my images have been published in countless newspapers, books and magazines, this type of publication does not always do them full justice. I take infinite care over the quality of my images and it’s great to be able to show them at A2 size and beyond, presented on photographic paper as fine-art prints. Many images destined for newspaper use could not withstand this type of presentation.”
The Cannizaro House Hotel Summer Exhibition runs from 21 June to 31 August 2014. Entry is free and there is ample parking.
