A Night to Remember


The stunning Halcyon Gallery in the heart of Mayfair, played host to Abode2 Luxury Property Magazine’s Annual Property, Art and Design Retrospective Champagne Reception on Thursday 17th November. The Black Tie event was held in partnership with SJW UK Property, award-winning London-based design consultancy CID Interieur, Rocksure Property, 190 Strand Berkeley Group and McLaren Automotive.

250 invited guests from the world of property, design and interiors, media, banking and finance got together to enjoy a lively evening of property investment debate, art appreciation and networking.

A keynote highlight of the evening was an exclusive Private View of The Beaten Path, the highly-anticipated exhibition of new works by artist, musician and 2016 Nobel Laureate, Bob Dylan.

“The Beaten Path "collection - a name selected by the artist - show the States as Dylan has seen it on tour: images of quintessential Americana, at once iconic and quotidian. Lonely stretches of highway, bridges, ice-cream stores, diners, even Katz’s Deli in Manhattan - they are as intimate as they are universal.

Dylan also penned an essay for the exhibition catalogue - his most extensive piece of prose since the publication of his memoir Chronicles: Volume One in 2004. Dylan, as always somehow as coy as he is simplistic, writes that “the idea was to create pictures that would not be misinterpreted or misunderstood by me or anybody else.”

Dylan has been working with Halcyon for nearly a decade, after the gallery reached out as Dylan was showing his “Drawn Blank Series” at Germany’s Kunstsammlungen Museum. “It was authentic, it was fresh, it was looking at objects or scenes in the eyes of who we knew was Bob Dylan,” says Managing Director at Halcyon Gallery, Russell Green. “So that element, of course, came into it immediately because there was an immediate intellectual interest in it.”

Keynote speakers for the evening included former managing director of Abercrombie and Kent and co-founder and CEO of Rocksure Property, David Rogers and Director at Berkeley West London - Daniel Rowland.

Halcyon Gallery was established in 1982 as a platform for inspirational art. The gallery represents a selection of renowned international artists. Together Halcyon Gallery’s three London spaces and Shanghai space host a diverse programme of contemporary art, showing both established artists and new, emerging talent.
