Well, dreams begin to materialise …
For years I’ve wanted to open an Andie Airfix gallery space that could accommodate pop-up events as well as a conventional (well maybe not that conventional!) gallery displaying my work – a space that not only shows one-off rock art exhibitions for artists like Metallica, Led Zeppelin or Def Leppard –but also now and again opens in the evenings for discussions and chats about design and graphic techniques sadly lost in the all-pervasive computer age; a Space that invites guest speakers and designers who’ve been involved in music graphics – and generally have a good time over a beer or a glass of wine.
Ambitious probably – but then how do you get stuff done without going for it?
Well … it’s begun … opening as part of the BRIGHTON FRINGE, the largest arts festival in England, ROCK BRIGHTON presents the AIRFIX LOUNGE, an exciting month-long event in May 2013 where, in addition to seeing Airfix art never previously exhibited, you will have the chance to see ‘B*B G€LD*F STOLE MY SUNGLASSES’ – LIVE – a unique opportunity to hear the stories of working in the chaotic rock’n’roll world for over thirty years. Sometimes hair-raising, usually hilarious and always informative the talks will also demonstrate how many iconic album sleeves were created and the processes used to create them
It’s a great start and, and over the next few months, details will be outlined here.
Dates for exclusive events like the METALLICA and
DEF LEPPARD Weekends, will be announced in February
