Sir Peter Blake, the man dubbed the godfather of British pop art, is bound for Padstow to kick start a two week exhibition of his work.
Best known for creating the album cover of Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Sir Peter Blake is an internationally renowned artist whose striking prints explore his interest in popular culture. He is particularly renowned for his ties with the music industry, having produced iconic album covers for the likes of the Beatles, The Who and Oasis.
Now more than 40 of his printed works are coming to the Drang Gallery in Padstow, where an exhibition will run from Tuesday May 1 until Sunday May 13. The man himself will be at the gallery for the preview evening on Monday April 30 from 6pm until 8pm. His visit has been arranged to coincide with the start of Padstow’s Obby Oss Festival, a traditional festival held at the beginning of May.
The preview evening is by invitation only. So if you would like to meet the godfather of British pop art in person, call the Drang Gallery on 01841 533114 or book online at www.thedranggallery.com.
