Big excitement in our little corner of Lancashire as a piece by Tracey Emin will feature in an art gallery in Rossendale this week.
See Galley is giving the first northern showing to an exhibition that's just been a huge hit in London. The exhibition includes the work of Emin, Billy Childish, John Squire, Pennie Smith, Liam Spencer and Humphrey Ocean.
The exhibition was inspired by the 30th anniversary of the iconic album cover London calling by The Clash. The designer of the cover Ray Lowry died in 2008 and in tribute to his artistic talent; a number of prestigious artists were invited to create their own interpretation of London Calling.
Exhibition dates – 23/07/10 to 07/08/10
Opening times – Monday to Sunday 10am to 4pm
Late night – Thursdays 9pm close
Admission - Free
Venue - The See Gallery, Oddfellows Hall, 1 Binns Street, Crawshawbooth, Lancashire BB4 8AA
The exhibition was listed as The Guardian’s “pick of the week” event, it featured in the NME and Mojo magazines, gained the front cover of the London Evening Standard and the homepage of BBC News.
This year marked the launch of the Ray Lowry Foundation which has been set up to provide scholarships for creative further education courses.All the artwork has been donated by the artists and will be auctioned across the three gallery venues with all the proceeds going to the Ray Lowry Foundation.
The exhibition will be at the SEE gallery in Rossendale, Lancashire close to where Ray Lowry resided for most of his adult life. An exhibition of Ray Lowry’s own work will be held at the SEE gallery in September that will include some unseen work.
