— Exhibition Introduction by Charles Nodrum

The Laverty Collection has grown legendary in recent decades.  Of special note is the extent to which Colin and Liz focused on particular artists who they then proceeded to collect in depth - of which Allan Mitelman and Michael Taylor are two examples.  I have always admired both these artists and have dealt in - and also collected - their work over the years.  Mitelman’s unwavering commitment to a subtly textured minimalism is in stark contrast to Taylor’s vigorous gestural brushwork evocative of wind, water and weather.


Since its establishment in 1984, the Charles Nodrum Gallery’s exhibition program embraces a diversity of media and styles - from painting, sculpture & works on paper to graphics and photography; from figurative, geometric, gestural, surrealist & social comment to installation & conceptually based work.
