Beatles’ art show at Greenwich’s Parker Gallery
The Fab Four will reunite in spirit for 11 days at the C. Parker Gallery, in Greenwich, when The Beatles Art Show & Sale will feature signed art works by Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr.
The show opens Thursday, Sept. 14, with a reception that runs from 5:30 to 8 p.m. It will be on view, Friday, Sept. 15, through Sunday, Sept. 24, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily — and it’s all free and open to the public. Artwork will be available for purchase.
The gallery said the show is in honor of Sir Paul McCartney’s performances at Madison Square Garden on Sept.15 and 17 in Manhattan, and at Barclays Center, Sept. 19 and 21, in Brooklyn.
Neal Glaser, Paul McCartney’s art distributor and Ringo Starr’s art publisher, will be on hand to meet meet with patrons at the opening reception.
“This is a rare opportunity to see the creative artistic minds” of the four musicians, Glaser said. “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.”
“In 1986, George Harrison partnered with his friend, British rock musician Keith West, to publish three works of art based on his songs, “Piggies,” “Here Comes the Sun” and “Taxman.” West illustrated the artwork based on George’s vision and both Keith West and George Harrison hand signed the artwork. These very limited edition fine art lithographs were published by Genesis Publications and have been sold out for decades,” he added.
