LONDON.- A new upstairs gallery is to be opened by The Fleming Collection, which has become an embassy for Scottish art in London, enabling it to show rotating displays of major works from its permanent holdings. The new space, above The Fleming Collection’s existing gallery at 13 Berkeley Street, London W1, will be formally launched at a reception on Tuesday 10 May 2011 and open to the public from Friday 10 June 2011. “This development is an important step for us to undertake in our eleventh year”, says Selina Skipwith, Keeper of Art at The Fleming Collection. “It will ensure that works from our permanent collection, comprising works from 1770 to the present day, are always on show, reinforcing our existing programme of exhibitions. The latter draws on pictures from a wide range of public and private collections as well as our own.” Two generous donations covering half the cost of the lea
