On display: Reel Poster Gallery to exhibit at London Art Fair

Each year we select an art show to exhibit to give customers the opportunity to see our posters up close; last year it was LA, this year it’s London. Having run a gallery store in the capital for many years it’s always a pleasure to curate an unforgettable selection of posters for the audience at home. This year we join the galleries at London Art Fair, now in its 27th year, this event is London’s premium event for wall art. As the Fair team describe, you can expect to find “Museum quality Modern British art is presented alongside contemporary work from today’s leading artists, covering the period from the early 20th century to the present day.”

Taking place at the Business Design Centre, Angel Islington, the show runs 21-25 January with some late nights (9pm close) during the week to make viewing easy. As well as the many exhibitions on display, there is an impressive programme of speakers to enjoy from top curators to art critics, artists to major collectors.

You can find Reel Poster Gallery at booth G28. Our display will show the full spectrum of original posters to cater for all genres, tastes, eras and budgets. To whet your appetite, here are our top five favourites that will be on show:

    1. Fistfull of Dollars (1964)
      Rare advance poster capturing Clint Eastwood before the star was famous; this film also marked the dawn of the Spaghetti Western era
    2. 4th San Francisco Film Festival (1960)
      Outstanding and rare original poster by legendary poster artist Saul Bass (1920 – 1996)
    3. A Midsummer Night’s Dream (1935)

    4. The Party (1968)
      A Peter Sellers classic captured in this one-of-a-kind original artwork (gouache on board) by Jack Davis
    5. The Wizard of Oz (1939)
