Press Releases - Lesley Kehoe Galleries

Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Many times over the last twelve to fifteen months, I have empathized with Eddy Murphy’s young donkey. The destination seemed elusive, always further away. Older, and supposedly wiser, than Shrek’s companion, I had forgotten about the importance of the journey, of the truism that an ending is another beginning, and a beginning another ending. So while it is obvious that we are at the starting point of a new gallery, the journey, past and future had to be considered.
At the commencement of a new phase in our gallery life and the commencement of a promising Year of the Rabbit in the Oriental zodiac cycle, it seemed appropriate to acknowledge our beginnings. Thus the opening show returns to our roots in historical works of art. In 1983, in humble surrounds, no capital and no clients, this business committed to a specialization in Japanese works of art.
Along the way, the philosophy of Lesley Kehoe Galleries’ approach to art was refined and distilled and is beautifully expressed in the opening quotation from fourteenth century playwright Zeami: Art makes a huge contribution to our quality of life; its appeal is universal; it arouses passion - it is a starting point rather than a destination or an end in itself. It is the meeting place for sharing appreciation, swapping stories and bearing witness.
