Paul Holder and I met Alan Davis - yes that Alan Davis! - on Saturday 30 July, more about this meeting another time, promise! We both went in to look around the exhibition, this being the first time I had been to the gallery, despite its history of showing Bellamy's work one way or another.
The gallery has two large very open exhibition spaces and all walls had artwork on them.
|Biography of Bellamy|
|Bellamy nearly takes up a wall|
|Gallery Sales table and the right hand side of the 'Bellamy' space|
|From Garth: The Mask of Atacama (G182)|
|From: Garth: Bride of Jenghiz Khan (H301-303)|
Owned by the Gallery
|Various from Garth: The Wolfman of Ausensee|
|Placing original paintings from the collection with comic artwork|
Overall, I have to say I'm a bit jaded having already seen a lot of what was on display of Bellamy's work, but it is so good to see his work being celebrated locally.
John Freeman has an article about True Brit and how to order high quality prints of original art by Bellamy and Colin Noble reviewed the exhibition for John's Downthetubes site.
