An Exploration of the Relationship Between Music and Art by Steve McDowell

TIME: Thursday 29 March – Sunday 15 April

Venue: Georgian Gallery, Ards Arts Centre

Opening: Thursday 29 March, 7-9pm

Inspired by music all his life and a previous incarnation from running his own music shop for years, Steve produces hand painted Acrylic images of some of his favourite musical artists through the years.

A fan of stark graphic simplicity, clean lines, the work of Andy Warhol and the POP ART movement Steve tries to recreate the inspiration on canvas of the spirit each of these artists have given him through music.
