Giving album artwork the eyeball at Homes & Interiors Scotland

In this age of music downloads, it might seem that album artwork has seen its day. But, the reality is more and more people are buying signed limited-edition prints of their favourite albums to add style to their homes.

The Artists Gallery, which is the sole Scottish agent for the world's leading retailer in signed limited edition album fine art, will be drawing attention to its stand at the Homes & Interiors Scotland Exhibition with two giant eyeballs.

Valued at £15,000 and standing six feet tall, the eyeballs were made by Storm Thorgerson for the Pink Floyd’s ‘Pulse DVD’.

During the weekend, Terry Pastor, one of the best-known album artists, who includes David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust and Hunky Dory among his credits, will be making an appearance on the Artists Gallery stand.
Other album artwork the Artists Gallery stand will include The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Paul Weller, The Who and ‘War of the Worlds’.

Garvan Murray manager of the Artists Gallery commented:

“The interest in signed limited edition album artwork is growing steadily. People really enjoy displaying their favourite album covers on the wall, especially when it is signed by the album artist and the performers.
“The bonus is that, not only can you really enjoy them as a work of art, but they are also a good potential investment.”

Also on the Artists Gallery stand are limited edition artwork from children’s illustrations from the books by Quentin Blake and Roald Dahl, plus Shirley Hughes; Dick Bruna, Eric Hill ‘Spot’, Sam McBratney, Helen Craig ‘Angelina Ballerina’ and original etchings by Eileen Soper.

The Artists Gallery, is exhibiting on stand K24 along with sister company the Banchory Gallery, at the Homes & Interiors Scotland Exhibition this weekend (August 28-30) in the SECC.

The Artists Gallery and Banchory Gallery are operated by a trading company with a social focus. Providing training and work opportunities for people with a disability, they believe that being a company rather than a charity offers the best chance of delivering their objective sustainably.
