With the imminent arrival of works on loan from Her Majesty The Queen there has never been a more fitting time to spruce up the Billiard Room Gallery which has begun to look a little too ‘shabby chic’ and rough around the edges after several years of hosting events and exhibitions. In order to make the space ‘fit for a Queen’ we are preparing to give the walls a much needed lick of paint, courtesy of the generous people at Farrow and Ball who have very kindly donated a quantity of estate emulsion for the job.
Following much debate within the 150th committee (who are responsible for the facilitation of the 150th celebratory events and exhibitions) it was finally agreed that the walls should be painted with Farrow and Ball’s ‘Estate no.19 Lichen’, a calm and muted green which, with its subtle underlying blue tones is sure to offset the 150th exhibition and all future exhibitions perfectly – quietly complimenting the works on display without overpowering them.
Painting will commence this week, meaning that the Billiard Room will be out of bounds to members until completion. We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause, though we are sure that you will agree that it’s well worth the wait.
