Drawing on the names of the three pubs – The Lauriston, The Hanbury and The Regent – the series is entitled LHR, (‘it’s nothing to with London Heathrow Airport’, he assures us).
The first show in the series is Whisper, opening at The Hanbury Arms in Islington next month.
The exhibition is showing work created through a sort of visual game of Chinese Whispers.
Mr Gresty describes the works as ‘a sequence of repetitions of a story, each one differing from the previous, so that the final telling bears only a scant resemblance to the original’.
The images will be hung chronologically throughout the space, meaning visitors can more easily follow the strange narrative.
As well as attending the exhibitions, artists, friends, fans and any other interested parties are invited to, well, party on the opening nights.
The idea, says Gresty, is that people can ‘make contacts, set up collaborations and the artists can find out about those that showcase artists work, that blog and exhibit.’
In running the shows, it’s hoped that the venue benefits from having great art on show; and artists can use the events to spread the word about their work, whether they specialize in printmaking, fine art, illustration, photography, painting or filmmaking.
Whisper runs from 11 October – 22 November at The Hanbury Arms, 33 Linton Street, Islington, N1. For more information visit the Facebook page here
