The Possibilities are Endless, 108 Fine Art, Cold Bath House, Harrogate.

A TRULY memorable evening took place in Harrogate as part of Harrogate International Festival Fringe.

An exhibition of paintings and drawings by internationally acclaimed musicians and artists, Edwyn Collins and Adrian Wiszniewski previewed to a full house at 108 Fine Art’s new gallery on Cold Bath Road.

Fresh from the MOJO awards the evening before where Edwyn had been honoured with a prestigious MOJO Award the artist attended the preview of his exhibition of wildlife drawings in Harrogate.

Guests were entertained with performances by the Scottish Philharmonic Orchestra and actress Danielle Stewart who read La Befana, an old Italian folk tale, re-written by Wiszniewski himself.

This was followed by a powerfully delivered rendition of Rip it Up and Girl Like You by Edwyn Collins and accompanied by the Scottish Philharmonic Orchestra quintet.

Adrian Wiszniewski’s series of huge coloured story tale paintings on paper attracted considerable interest form old and new collectors confirming he is now producing some of his finest paintings to date.

The event, which was filmed by Ian McLeod, will shortly be available to view at 108fineart.com

‘The Possibilities Are Endless’ Paintings and Drawings by Adrian Wiszniewski and Edwyn Collins will run at 108 until Saturday, August 27.
