We are beyond pleased to present Fags, Birds and a Couple of Guns, a retrospective dedicated to the extraordinary work of Nancy Fouts. Thursday 27th of February saw us host the private view for the opening of the show. It was a lovely night that will be remembered as a favourite for us. The show is the first retrospective of the artist's work since her passing last April and we are incredibly honoured to be the galley to host this incredible show.
