Welcome to The Wick

— Katy Wickremesinghe
Dear All,

The excellence of London Gallery Weekend saw art addicts spread out across the capital as over 130 of London’s emerging and established galleries have opened their doors to celebrate London’s cultural and creative art scene in all its glorious forms.

Temperatures are rising and the sunglasses, shorts and espadrilles combo is getting a parade around town and there may still just be time to check out the outdoor sculpture trail and Contemporary Arts Society (CAS) charity pop-up to boot.

World Environment Day (Saturday 5 June) and Ocean Day on 8 June, shine a spotlight on our precious planet and how we now need to live (gently) upon it this week. Nature is now at its peak of beauty. From the roses blooming in gardens to the hedgerows on Devon lanes to the tastiest fresh garden peas, it is a joy to behold and will provide more solace from scuppered foreign travel plans that are still a touch-and-go affair with testing and quarantine complexity.

Unpredictability is becoming the new norm. Perhaps the best escape is to roll over in the clover and forget flight booking. Welcome back from Portugal campers.

With best wishes,
The Wick - Home
