DON’T WALK WALK Gallery, Deal: Buying art for Valentine's Day

By Digby Kennard

With Valentine's Day fast approaching, many of us are scratching our heads to find that unique, meaningful and personal gift that says so much.

Something that ticks every box is a work of art.

However, given its subjective nature, it is no wonder that buying art for a loved one can be a profoundly challenging and can easily be passed over for a safer, mass produced option.

But it doesn't have to be that way and as we approach Valentine's Day - yet another event in our 'commercial calendar’ - do you really need to be filling your loved ones living space with cards, flowers, expensive fluffy toys, chocolates and other gimmicks blazing cliché messages of love?

Why not invest some love and thought into giving a piece of art?

Not only will it not go in the bin in a few weeks time but it will also live and grow in significance on your walls or shelves and collectively become an object of deeper meaning, encapsulating a moment of love and becoming part of the your joint existence.

Kent gallery owner and artist Neil Horenz-Kelly, said "It’s my fundamental belief that art should be for all budgets and mindsets.

"Indeed it’s the little unexpected moments when someone wanders in my gallery not knowing what it is they are looking at and has a deep connection and dialogue with an artwork that fuels my desire to make work and expose all audiences to it."

Neil is the curator at DON’T WALK WALK Gallery in Deal which showcases works from 25 artist from LA to Dover.

The pieces on display offer fresh, alternative perspectives in painting, printing, photography and sculpture.

Coming under the banner of Tainted Love, the show explores themes, symbols and imagery related to love.

It is running at the gallery in Victoria Road until Wednesday, February 14.
