Solo Exhibition of New Work by Laura Beaumont Laura Beaumont uses the pre-existing media of antiquarian books to explore the sub-text of human interaction. The absurd, the comic and ironic; scandals, traumas and sorrows are all depicted in miniature tableaux.
Solo Exhibition of New work by Keith Haynes
In this exhibition Keith Haynes stays true to his exploration of popular culture, and whilst new elements are shown in this exhibition - neon, badges, guns and the detritus of teenage experimentation - there is still a preponderance of his original material - beautiful black vinyl. Unashamedly nostalgic and evocative, his work, now widely collected, occupies a special niche in the pop art genre.
A welcome return to the gallery for HOLLIES lead singer PETER HOWARTH who will be entertaining with an accoustic performance of some classic hits (He Aint Heavy, The Air that I Breathe, Carrie, Pretty Woman) as well as some of his own compositions from his album, Evermore. Star of the Roy Orbison Story in the West End and long time guitarist and vocalist with Sir Cliff Richard, join us to hear his amazing vocals and wonderful accoustic arrangements of some familiar songs.
He will be joined by his special guest IAN PARKER who launched his own album PACIFICA at the gallery in 2015 to great acclaim
Fellow Hollies band member Ian Parker is a composer/producer/keyboardist/vocalist and DJ. A graduate of the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, he has been a member of the Hollies and Clannad for many years and has performed with Elkie Brooks, Joan Armatrading, The Three Degrees, Chuck Berry and the Tom Robinson band to name but a few. He will perform tracks from his scifi chillhouse album Pacifica and tracks from Count the Waves, Clannad, Tom Robinson.
