Sesame is proud to announce “Five Years”, our five-year anniversary show of exciting new art from across the world to coincide with the re-launch of the new gallery on Friday 12 December 2008.

As you may know, Sesame is currently being extended and refurbished, creating a new, bigger gallery with three spaces over two floors. To celebrate this important milestone in the gallery’s growth, and coinciding five years to the day with when Sesame first opened its doors in 2003, “Five Years” brings together an exquisite range of exciting new works from exciting emerging artists across the globe, along with works by established gallery artists. Among the works featured will be:

  • Teddy-bear buddhas by South Korean sculptor Ki June Park
  • An ethereal paper wonderland installation by Mexican artist Marifer Barrero
  • Fantastical painting by German artist Miriam Jarrs
  • Hard-edge portraiture from Swedish rising star Johan Andersson
  • Calligraphic characters by Japanese Jerwood Prize winner Yuko Nasu
  • Found metal painting by urban art star Matthew Small
  • Plus new works by Jon Braley, Henrijs Preiss, Kate Westerholt and others

The show opens with a Christmas Garden Party in the gallery on Friday 12 December, 6 – 8pm, and will certainly be an event to remember – I look forward to welcoming both old friends and new to celebrate this special occasion. Please RSVP to info@sesameart.com.
