Spring/Summer Exhibition 2020
The Dragon Gallery presents a group show featuring our Artists' DS, Michelle Heron, Mike England, Marco Piemonte, Soo Jin Yoo, Dave Shrimpton, Simon Tayler and Alexander de Cadenet. Our Spring/Summer Exhibitions runs from Wednesday 15th of April until Saturday the 29th August.
Featured Artist - Michelle Heron
The Dragon Gallery would like to introduce you to Michelle Heron, one of our talented artists, and most certainly one to watch. Winning many awards, her works are diverse, collectable and highly investable with her timeless capture of the disappearing shop fronts on the High Street, viewers reminiscent of shops they once knew and loved.
Michelle Heron (b.1980) is an urban landscape painter from Norfolk, England but spent many years living in London before finally settling in Italy.
Her paintings have been featured in the likes of The Guardian and The Londonist and thanks to an ever-increasing following she is able to boast private and corporate collectors across Europe, North America, Asia and Australia.

English artist Michelle Heron is a painter working in acrylic, known primarily for her paintings that immortalise the many threatened independent shops that make our high streets what they are. Her paintings were described by art curator and TV presenter Kate Bryan: "It’s such a clever way of tackling landscape, to give us a focus of a shopfront. It makes you think of the Impressionists when they loved painting people through glass, sitting in cafes or bars." Her work has been compared with Edward Hopper and George Shaw for her sensitive use of colour and light and the way her paintings capture the mood and feelings of a place.
Since earning a degree in Fine Art in 2002, Michelle’s work has gone on to be shortlisted for The Lynn Painter-Stainers' Prize (2016), The John Ruskin Prize (Finalist 2016 & 2019), The National Open Art Competition (2016) and the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition (2017). In 2018 Michelle was selected to exhibit in the 157th Society of Women Artists Annual Open Exhibition in London.
