RedHouse Originals is delighted to announce details of a dedicated solo exhibition by the Godfather of Pop Art Sir Peter Blake.
This special exhibition will be opened by Sir Peter Blake himself and is the first part of an exciting programme of events culminating on Saturday 12th March where the artist will be awarded an Honorary Doctorate in Music at Leeds University.
Collectors are invited to view and purchase works during the exhibition at RedHouse including some of the rarest and most sought after original and limited edition prints Blake has produced. Highlights include portraits of Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe and his seminal artwork for The Beatles’ 1967 album Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.
The exhibition will also feature the unveiling of Blake’s recent portrait of Ian Stewart; the legendary keyboardist and co-founder of The Rolling Stones. The artist has designed the artwork for Boogie for Stu; a tribute album to Stewart recorded by Stu’s protégé Ben Waters and featuring contributions from The Rolling Stones and Jools Holland.
“Ian Stewart. I’m still working for him. To me the Rolling Stones is his band. Without his knowledge and organisation … we’d be nowhere.”
The artwork will be available to view and pre-order as a limited edition silkscreen print with proceeds going to the British Heart Foundation’s Mending Broken Hearts campaign.
