Own your very own John Byrne exclusive print

A special limited edition print by leading Scottish artist John Byrne is available to buy in support of Aberdeen Art Gallery’s £30million redevelopment to inspire art and music.

The three-colour screen print titled ‘E St’ features a bold portrait head against a mythical New York streetscape and was produced thanks to the generosity of Peacock Visual Arts (PVA) printmaking studio.

An avid supporter of the campaign to redevelop Aberdeen Art Gallery, John Byrne from Paisley is an award-winning writer and artist whose career has spanned almost 60 years. His works ranges from plays (The Slab Boys), TV (Tutti Frutti and Your Cheatin’ Heart), to book and record covers, illustrations and paintings

The prints, of which there are only 50, cost £400 each and can be ordered through the Inspiring Art and Music fundraising campaign. Contact Michael Hodgson, campaign manager, via email: mhodgson@aberdeencity.gov.uk

Proceeds from the sale of the print will go directly to the Inspiring Art and Music fundraising campaign supporting the transformation of Aberdeen Art Gallery, Cowdray Hall and Remembrance Hall.

The scale of this project is unprecedented in Aberdeen and is creating a world class cultural centre, celebrating the inspiring power of art and music in the North-east of Scotland.
