This gallery on the 1st floor of 31 Mathew St is closing down this Saturday April 2nd. The website www.lennonart.co.uk will be upgraded to focus on online sales of their John Lennon prints and Beatles photographs and artwork by the likes of Robert Whitaker, Klaus Voormann and Astrid Kirchherr. The gallery has been there for 6 years but not many locals seem to know about it but its popular with tourists and many ‘celebrity’ fans have called in.
The manager Melissa Storey tells me they hope to still hold occasional exhibitions at local venues including their usual presence at the Adelphi during the Mathew St festival at end of August.
So do try and call in and see it before it goes, you’ll need more than pocket money to buy a print but there is a bargain desk at the back.
