Loughran Gallery at Muriel's Kitchen Art Takeover
Loughran Gallery joined forces with Muriel's Kitchen, one of Soho's most popular places to eat, to produce a whole new approach to buying art. Think delicious, fresh recipes and cool, contemporary art works in one quite literally sensational experience.
Set up by Charlotte and Sam Miller, the concept of Muriel's Kitchen was inspired by Charlotte’s true ‘no-nonsense’ Grandmother whose kitchen was the heart of her home. Many of the secrets of her recipes, which have been passed down the generations, live on through the dishes seen on the menu today.
All who come to the Art Takeover in Muriel's Old Compton Street location were encouraged to enjoy and take in the art over a plate of wholesome food, making the whole process of viewing and buying art relaxed and enjoyable. Our contemporary pieces were shown at their best in a homely setting, and showed just how easy it is to bring any work of art into your home.
The Loughran Gallery crowd saw works from some of our favourite artists - Dave White, Lara Carew-Jones, Marc Quinn, Tracey Emin and Takashi Murakami - alongside some wonderful treats courtesy of Jessica Zoob and Damien Hirst.
Jessica Zoob brought Endless Love to the Art Takeover - a stunning centre piece evoking the Sussex countryside which took pride of place in the Takeover shed. And towards the front of Muriel's Kitchen, nestled amongst the frames, copper pans and rustic paint brushes you could find Loughran Gallery's newest member, Mickey, the most adorable of Damien Hirst's creations.
