4 Horsemen - an Exhibition of Oil Paintings and Rock and Roll
4 Horsemen opened last friday (2 June) with a huge party. I'm exhibiting some paintings with Jimmy Willing, Ben Cahill and Chas Glover until 29 june at Newsagency Gallery, 332 Stanmore Rd Petersham. The gallery is open from wed-sun from 11-5 so there's plenty of time to get along and its well worth a look.
A real photographer is going to come in and take images of everything but in the meantime here's a few photos of the paintings on the walls, starting with me (John O'Driscoll - more here) With my paintings I've put links to the blog posts where I published their creation and development.
Thanks to Bess O'Malley at Newsagency for putting on the show
