Saturday in Fitzrovia will be quiet this holiday weekend, when many people will escape for a short break. It’s an ideal time to wander around Fitzrovia’s streets and visit the galleries without the hordes of people and motor traffic normally around in the week.

Two of Fitzrovia’s galleries are between exhibitions of specific artists but have mixed shows taking place and it’s an opportunity to explore a variety of artistic talent.

At the Rebecca Hossack Gallery, 2A Conway Street, W1T 6BA there are 10 artists displaying works. Among them are pieces by Petra McCarthy (pictured). See for more details

The Woolf Gallery, 89 Charlotte Street, W1T 4PU has a group exhibition with works by a dozen of its artists. For more information see
