For years before his death, London’s October Gallery emerged as a committed advocate for Aubrey Williams’ work. This advocacy and commitment has continued in the decades following the Guyana-born artist’s death in 1990. Typical in this regard was the exhibition of Williams’ “Cosmos” series, held at October Gallery 14 December 1995 - 27 January 1996.

The exhibition focused on Williams’ “Cosmos” paintings of the mid 1980s, such as Nebulic Cluster, 1985, oil on canvas, 119 x 178 cm, Collapse II, oil on canvas, 76 x 122 cm, and Nebula in Orion, 1985, oil on canvas, 119 x 177.5 cm.

This simple, plain card served as an invitation to the opening of the exhibition, on Wednesday 13 December 1995. The exhibition was, as stated on the card, to be opened by Joanna Drew.
