Recommended by Rebecca (Gallery Manager): "Summer Serenade always makes me nostalgic for the New York of the 70s. Through this image, I can feel the heat and humidity that draws New Yorkers out of their apartments and onto the stoop to chat, play music, and enjoy the night air. It is a scene that reminds me of an era but is still timeless. Even when I've just visited New York, Mershimer's portrayal makes me want to go back."

Recommended by Emma (Marketing & Communications Manager): "The architectural detail of the Victorian style is beautifully detailed in this drypoint. In a world of fast production and cheap materials, this style appeals to a longing for craftsmanship of times past. In this way it tugs at a deep desire to pursue the more fulfilling aspects of human experience, regardless of the rhythm of modern life. It prompts us to seek out artists and craftspeople, support our local makers, and reject the blitz of corporate advertising. Both the drypoint medium and the architecture depicted remind us that the best things in life require time and great care, and bring us closer in touch with our fellow humans."
