This is an interesting show where gallery artists are in dialogue with their ‘Faux Amis’ or false friends. Spread over two floors, including the new first floor exhibition space, the work of gallery artists is hung next to their chosen ‘faux amis’ and the result is never dull.  Some complement each other while others show signs of discord and indeed, just as a faux finish in interior decoration, some are even better.
