Recently Mike Simmonds (Stan's great nephew) made contact with Billingsgate market which was a subject of Stan's attention for many years. You can read the outcome of the visit here
Please join us from 6-9pm on Friday 9th May for the launch of
Stanley Simmonds 1917-2006, A Retrospective Exhibition
at Lewes House
High Street, Lewes BN7 2LX
As well as Stanley's work on view, there will be live string music (organised and played by one of Stan's great nephews, Mike Simmonds), drinks and a chance to meet some of the artist's family.
A range of Stanley Simmonds paintings are on show in the Members' Room at www.officreche.com. The co-working space has been recently revamped by the stylist Leesa Whisker (http://www.whiskeragency.co.uk) - she's the one mimicing Cynthia Simmonds' pose beneath her portrait in the photograph below?!
The images of the gorgeous space were taken by the photographer Mi Elfverson (www.truenorthphoto.co.uk). Elizabeth Moody-Stuart, the director of Officrèche, is married to Ben Simmonds, a grand-nephew of Stanley Simmonds. Please contact her directly on 07957 555125 for a viewing of the works.
