Beatles Exhibition 2017
In honor of Paul McCartney’s upcoming New York performances at Madison Square Garden and Barclays Center, The Beatles will be reunited at C. Parker Gallery, in their new location at 409 Greenwich Avenue, Greenwich, Connecticut for “The Beatles Art Show & Sale.” This unique limited time exhibit showcases handsigned works by Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr. “The Beatles Art Show & Sale” opens to the public on Thursday, September 14th and continues daily until Sunday, September 24th. Artwork will be available for purchase. In addition to the Beatles hand signed works, an extremely rare Andy Warhol artwork featuring the Beatles will be available for purchase. This Warhol piece was originally commissioned for a book cover for the Geoffrey Stokes book on the Beatles. The 1980 screenprint features colored graphic art paper collage on a board. Warhol designed the artwork based on a photograph by celebrity photographer Dezo Hoffmann. He then incorporated blocks of irregularly shaped color, which although screenprinted, appear like collaged fragments of colored paper. Only a few of these pieces are known to exist, one is featured in the National Gallery of Scotland.
Paul McCartney’s art distributor and Ringo Starr’s art publisher, Neal Glaser will be on hand to meet with patrons and talk about these very special and collectible works. This is a rare opportunity to see the creative artistic minds of Fab Four. Attendees will have the opportunity to witness each artist’s different personalities emerge and the different styles they favored. Lennon is the line drawer in the style of Hirschfeld and Thurber. Paul is an abstract expressionist similar to De Kooning and Dali, while Ringo is the pop artist in the style of Warhol and Haring. “The Beatles Art Show & Sale” opens Thursday, September 14th and continues daily until Sunday, September 24th at C. Parker Gallery, 409 Greenwich Avenue, Greenwich. This will be the largest collection of Beatles autographs and their respective artworks on display. This exhibit is free to the public and all works are available for purchase. Come to the base of Greenwich Avenue and enjoy this incredible show.
