#279: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! Debra Dee is a supremely talented Australian artist who has produced some excellent portraits of The Move and ELO co-founder Roy Wood amongst others. You can catch a glimpse of her work if you visit Woody's Bar at The Robin 2 in Bilston near Wolverhampton because you will find one of her wonderful Roy Wood portraits proudly displayed just inside the front door [unveiled back in June 2011] thus:
Yours Truly KJS has been talking to Debra about her portfolio and have some exciting news pertaining to her work dedicated to Roy Wood. An exhibition of many of Debra's interpretive paintings of Roy Wood will open on Thursday 2nd February and run until Thursday 23rd February 2012 at St. Pauls Gallery in Birmingham in a three week run. And with painting titles such as "Reflections", "The Muse" and "White Magic" - one can only count down the days until the exhibition begins.
The opening night will see a host of 1960's and 1970's music personalities in attendance and hopefully Roy will be in attendance too. This whole three week event is a must for fans of Roy Wood, ELO, The Move and Wizzard to see not only these great paintings of Roy but also appreciate the talent and artistic licence of Debra. I hope to attend the premiere with Martin Kinch of Cherry Blossom Clinic. You can visit their web sites and/or Facebook pages via these links thus:
ELO Beatles Forever [ELOBF] recommends Debra Dee's Exhibition Of Roy Wood Art to those enlightened folks who also like ELO, Jeff Lynne, Roy Wood, 'Brum Beat', The Idle Race, The Move, The Beatles and related artistes. Please make the effort to visit the exhibition next February to support both Debra and Roy.
Until next "Time" in the ELO [and related] Universe ... KJS ... 03-Dec-2011
