Matthew Alexander Fine Art Reopens After Almost Two Years
Art lovers now have the chance to visit one of Thanet’s most prestigious art galleries owned by internationally acclaimed artist, Matthew Alexander.
Matthew Alexander Fine Art re-opened at the beginning of December, after a closure due to lockdown of almost two years. Alexander’s Gallery will show a continual exhibition of Matthew’s work with occasional exhibitions of other invited artists.
To launch the reopening, the gallery is currently showcasing a collection of Matthew’s masterful landscapes which capture the alluring Kent coast and countryside and its open skies. The exhibition features his most recent project ‘In the footsteps of impressionists’, a project where Matthew has re-visited many of the locations where the famous French Impressionists painted over 150 years ago.
Situated in the heart of the Kent country side, between Canterbury and Ramsgate, the Architect designed large barn with high ceilings is, in Matthew’s own words, “a fabulous space.”
During March, the gallery will be exhibiting a collection of Matthew’s Father’s work, Christopher Alexander. The exhibition will feature a selection of drawings and paintings. Christopher modestly described himself as a ‘draftsman with a brush’. Many would know Chris from his many years of teaching at Canterbury College and Margate adult education centres.
Information regarding current and future exhibitions are detailed on the new website. The gallery is open Tuesday to Friday 10am to 3pm and Saturdays 11am to 5pm.
If you would prefer a more personal experience, during the current pandemic situation, the gallery is able to offer bookable ‘private viewings’. Please call the gallery to arrange a convenient time for you to visit and view the exhibition in a safe and distanced way.
