A Cabinet of Curiosities at Orleans House Gallery
What do you treasure? What do you collect? Orleans House Gallery in Twickenham is staging a quirky exhibition next year titled Collectors: A Cabinet of Curiosities. Drawing from the prestigious Richmond upon Thames Borough Art Collection and a range of private loans - many never shown to the public before - the exhibition will run from 14th January until 12th March.
Mark De Novellis, Curator of Exhibitions and collections is requesting individuals to come forward with their collections:
“Over the last few years, I have been astonished by some of the items I have viewed in local private collections and would like owners to contact me to exhibit their items to a wider public. The aim of the exhibition is to explore collectors and the relationship they have with collecting. Whether you amass rare porcelain or collect tea cosies or Royal memorabilia, each collection is unique and a reflection of its owner…”
Alongside sections on the Borough Art Collections- including founder Nellie Ionides - the exhibition will feature collections of postcards and even botanical samples.
“I aim to convey the breadth of objects collected - from the valuable to items which - though loved by their owners - have sentimental or other value. The final display will feel a bit like entering a vast Cabinet of Curiosities or Aladin’s Cave of treasures…”
To lend an item please contact Mark De Novellis on 020 8831 6000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
