Sir Peter Blake’s festive treat at RedHouse…
7th December, 2011
A YOUNG, cutting edge art gallery in Harrogate has launched its Christmas exhibition.
Being held at RedHouse Originals gallery on Cheltenham Mount, The Time Is Now features a collection of 21st century Pop, modern and urban contemporary art.
The show will run across the festive season and will feature recent work by artists including Sir Peter Blake, Pete McKee, Terry Cryer, Replete, Rourke Van Dal, David Rusbatch, Even and Tomo.
Initially established online, the gallery have been actively involved in exhibition work since 2006.
In 2008 RedHouse curated Project One: Icons at 108 Fine Art, a group exhibition celebrating the use of iconic imagery in Pop Art and Urban Art that featured artists including Banksy, Blek le Rat, Gerald Laing and Dudley Edwards.
The gallery offers work from both established and emerging artists and recently hosted the retrospective exhibition by Godfather of Pop Art Sir Peter Blake.
Twenty Years of Printmaking 1991-2011 was opened by the artist himself and featured a unique collection of the artists printed works on paper.
RedHouse will mark the end of a highly successful year which has seen it build on the successes of exhibitions with Sir Peter Blake and Terry Cryer by previewing recent and unseen images by both these celebrated artists.
The show also includes a newcomer to RedHouse, Pete McKee who will be exhibiting at the gallery for the first time. The artist’s distinctive illustrative has really caught the imagination with collectors of his work including Noel Gallagher, Damien Hirst, The Arctic Monkeys and Paul Smith.
McKee’s international reputation also continues to soar with recent shows taking in New York, Paul Smith’s Tokyo gallery and his first London exhibition opened at Snap Galleries, London this year to commercial and critical acclaim.
The gallery is open seven days a week and the show continues across the Festive Season until Monday, January 30, 2012.
