Its a shame this first Annual Commercial Exhibition at the Royal Standard is only on for 3 days. It doesn’t give people much time to see and buy the works. And its well worth a visit, there are over 40 pieces by local, national and international artists, prices range from £2 to £2000.
You could buy one of John O’Hare’s painted chairs or Nicola Fitzsimmons tower block made out of staples or a painting by Hamish McLain, James Buso, Paul Luckcraft, Jen Davis, Ian Law, Geoff Molyneux etc.
Some works I would class as more commercial than others but as a non-buyer I found them all interesting especially this 800RPM piece by Alan Dunn which is a unique 12″ vinyl with a recording of 800 uses of the word ‘Revolution’ from various records. In the centre are authentic autographs from Bill Shankly, Ian McCulloch, Bill Drummond, Ricky Tomlinson, Kenny Dalglish and John Peel.
