A feast of exhibitions for art lovers

A feast of exhibitions for art lovers

Given London's place as one of the most artistic and creative cities in the world, it is little surprise to find the capital's cultural calendar packed with exciting exhibitions for couples and families to enjoy.
 
One such event is the Abstract America Today showcase being held at the Saatchi Gallery, which presents work from some of the most talented and exiting works from a host of US artists, including Paul Bloodgood, Lisa Anne Auerbach and Wyatt Kahn. While these names may not be familiar to many people, they will be after taking in some of the work on display.
 
British artists are also being represented in London this summer, with the Tate Britain's exhibition British Folk Art giving established as well as up-and-coming talent to show the world what they can do.
 
This is the first major exhibition of British folk art and will include various works such as a cockerel formed from mutton bones by French prisoners of war during the Napoleonic wars and a figure of King Alfred made entirely from thatch.
 
Folk art is an area that has been neglected in recent years and this exhibition aims to celebrate all that is great and good about it, so it is something to pencil in during your trip to London.
 
Over at the British Museum, an exhibition exploring some of the largest mammals to walk the earth is taking place.
 
Mammoths – Ice Age Giants provides mum, dad and the kids with the opportunity to learn more about these majestic beasts through fossils, huge skeletons and life-sized models. Their behaviour, environment and evolution will all be explored, making this both a fun and informative event for children and adults alike.
 
If you are a lover of satire then one event not to be missed is the Satirical City exhibition taking place at the Building Centre. Featuring almost 120 London cartoons by artist Martin Rowson, the showcase explores politics, history and many other subjects through the medium of cartoons. In addition to the black and white images, a mural painted by Martin will also be on show.
 
They say that an Englishman's home is his castle and if this is something you can relate to then why not pay a visit to the Geffrye Museum and experience the Useful and Beautiful: Contemoprary design for the home exhibition?
 
It features all the latest in cutting-edge design for the home, including wallpaper, furniture, lighting, technology and textiles. If your property is in need of freshening up, this could be just the thing to get your creative juices flowing to breathe new life into your interiors.
 
Another highlight of the capital's artistic calendar is the First Georgians: Art and Monarchy 1714-1760 exhibition at the Queen's Gallery in Buckingham Palace. The event marks the 300th anniversary of the beginning of the Georgian era and includes more than 300 works from royal residences from across the country. Highlights include a bust of William Wollaston and William Kent's depiction of the Battle of Agincourt, as well as many other paintings and sculptures.
