March’s exhibitions were in places not normally open to the public. Candida Stevens galley presented part of Stephen Farthing’s collection of paintings Museums of the World in the private gallery of Simon Draper, former chairman of Virgin Music Group. The paintings were interspersed with Simon’s impressive collection of contemporary art.

A friend invited me to see her friend Ann O’Daly’s exhibition A Forward Step Back with Ann Cook. The art was interesting because it was inspired by bodily experience. I also enjoyed the colour and application of paint.
