The global pandemic is giving rise to an emergency in mental health as vulnerable people in society are experiencing incredible pressures. Although the current focus is on treating people critically ill with the COVID-19 virus, the new wave of effort is going to have to be directed at those suffering from impacts brought about by the virus.
Tanya Baxter from Tanya Baxter Contemporary art dealers in central London said:
The mental health impact surrounding COVID-19 is already growing into a national crisis. Whether it is single parents struggling to home-school whilst paying the bills, business owners facing bankruptcy, or family members suffering the loss of loved ones in isolation, this crisis will be played out in a myriad of ways.
We developed the Healing Art campaign to be able to direct funds to the Maudlsey Charity's campaign to raise money for the NHS mental health crisis. We are particularly pleased to be working with contemporary artist Pip Todd Warmoth who has agreed a limited run of lithograph prints of his beautifully elegant portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. The prins are strictly limited to 100 and are hand-finished by Pip.
The UK's no. 1 luxury wedding planners are wishing you well in these times of uncertainty. We are currently consulting with clients who are impacted or need advice regarding any distress caused by the pandemic to your wedding plans. Please do contact us if you need advice. All information is on our website.
Charities sare also suffering by a huge amount of fundraising events such as the 40th London Marathon that would have taken place today. The cost to charities is running into millions of pounds and efforts like the Healing Art Appeal are trying to make up for some of those losses.Tanya Baxter Contemporary is reducing the cost of the print by 50% and asking the buyer to donate the remaining 50% to the Maudsley Charity NHS appeal. The portrait will be framed and shipped once the charity has received the funds.
The art industry has been impacted by the cancellations of art fairs and exhibitions that are a key source of sale revenue for dealers. This has meant effort has pivoted to online where galleries are reaching out to collectors to help sustain both their business, the artists and others dependent on normal business practices.
The question remains how long it will take to return to a safe environment for doing business and also how much of the old normal will reemerge after the lockdown. Could virtual life offer more positives than negatives once we have adapted fully and recovered from the impacts of COVID-19. Time will tell.

The Dulwich Picture Gallery’s fascinating new exhibition titled “British Surrealism” courts the viewer through an extensive collection of artworks, showing many that predate the accepted Surrealism era. Coursing back centuries, it suggests the British psyche has been long adept at contemplating a certain otherness.Add a comment

The Dulwich Picture Gallery maybe the oldest purpose-built gallery in the world but it’s security systems are still avant-garde. Two of the Dutch master painters masterpieces were removed from their hangings but didn’t leave the gallery grounds as the Met police swept in and scared the robbers off.Add a comment

How many times have we heard local wine-o friends tell us categorically that red wine cannot be served with fish? It is a malady of gibberish first experienced in childhood but that has a habit of reoccurring throughout life. In order to put this dubiously fishy nonsense to bed, Harry Niazi, of Olley’s Fish Experience in South London’s Herne Hill, decided to investigate with a group of wine and fish enthusiasts including Andy Neather, former wine writer for the London Evening Standard.

Talk of vintages is usually the preserve of the wine industry but we should keep in mind that other drinks that we like to consume are also dependent on the terroir characteristics such as climate, altitude, soils, and other factors relating to the place where crops are grown.
The Copper Rivet Distillery, ideally situated on the banks of the River Medway in Kent, welcomed delivery of its Holy Trinity of cereals from the 2019 harvest, ready to distil the next vintage of its Dockyard Gin.Add a comment
