CLAUDI CASANOVAS Galerie Besson Final Exhibition 4-27 May 2011

Galerie Besson’s final exhibition presents two important new works by the Catalan artist, entitled Pòrtic Marí (Gateway to the Sea), alongside a selection of earlier works, dating from 1988 – 2009.
This is Claudi’s fourteenth solo exhibition at the gallery since he first showed in its opening year programme year in 1988. Fittingly, one work in this show (Wall plate, ill. left) was exhibited in that first London exhibition 23 years ago, and is shown again at this final exhibition for Galerie Besson.
We were very sorry to hear that Anita Besson is closing Galerie Besson at the end of this show. I personally will miss my visits to the gallery and the enjoyment of the stunning work displayed, but wish Anita well in her new projects. Her note from her website is copied below:
DEAR FRIENDS…
Mar 2011
The gallery opened in 1988 and it has been an extraordinary and exciting 23 years for me. I have met many wonderful artists who have given me encouragement, support and friendship . I have learnt so much from the public, enthusiasts and above all from the artists. Now, after 245 exhibitions and aged 77, I have come to the decision to close the gallery at the end of June and start a new phase of my life – just as exciting but less demanding than organising 10 exhibitions each year!
It has been my intention that my gallery should be useful in promoting ceramics on the international market. I feel that that has been achieved.
My recent trip to Japan for the Lucie Rie travelling exhibition in six museums, which, so far, has attracted more than 400,000 visitors, and the wonderful reception I received there, has made me realise, more than I had ever expected, the possibilities which are still open to me.
On a personal level, I am sure that you can imagine that the decision to close the gallery has not been easy but I feel that this is the right time to change direction while I still have the energy to do so.
I shall continue to work, but without a gallery, and look forward to new projects as a consultant. I hope we shall remain in touch
With my best greetings,
Anita Besson, March 201
