“THE RINGO STARR FINE ART SHOW” IN ROSWELL

By Posted on 0 6

An opportunity to meet a music icon is coming soon and the first step is going to the Ann Jackson Gallery in downtown Roswell. Beginning on Nov. 8 and running through Nov. 11, the gallery will host “The Ringo Starr Fine Art Show.”

He will make his return to Georgia by way of the Fox Theatre in Atlanta for “Ringo Starr & the All-Starr Band 2017.” “I started in the late nineties with my computer art. While I was touring, it gave me something to do in all those crazy hotels you have to stay in on the road,” said Ringo Starr in a previous interview from 2005.

“We have hosted other shows with the Ann Jackson Gallery, specifically a show with Beatles Yellow Submarine animator Ron Campbell, the Beatles and Bob Dylan. We love working with the gallery. The staff is the best and the gallery is so inviting. There was no other choice in our minds to host this show,” said Scott Segelbaum.

Ringo will take a photo backstage at the Fox Theatre with customers who purchase select pieces of his hand signed art work. The special featured exhibit at the gallery is celebrating Starr’s upcoming concert. Hand signed, limited edition art from Ringo Starr will be featured and available for purchase. All proceeds from the work will benefit the Lotus Foundation.

Purchasers will have the opportunity to donate to a cause and meet Starr himself before his concert on Nov. 11.

Ringo will personally meet and take a photo with customers who purchase select pieces of his hand signed artwork. Exhibit hours are 12 to 8:00 p.m. on Nov. 8 through 10 and 12 to 2 p.m. on Nov. 11. Similar shows have been presented on previous tours in Chicago and Boston.

Patrons wishing to view The Ringo Starr Fine Art show can do so at no cost. This opportunity is only available to customers of the Ann Jackson Gallery exhibit, previous purchases do not qualify. The event is “a special, once in a lifetime opportunity as a way to say thanks to the people who support the Lotus Foundation,” said a news release. All proceeds from art sales will benefit the Lotus Foundation, which works to “fund, support, participate in and promote charitable projects aimed at advancing social welfare in diverse areas including, but not limited to: substance abuse, cerebral palsy, brain tumors, cancer, battered women and their children, homelessness and animals in need.”

“At this point, we are limiting it to eight couples however if demand is bigger, there may be a way to add a few more. There are several dozen pieces of Ringo’s artwork on display but only a few selected pieces will qualify for the backstage meet and greet,” said Segelbaum.

Segelbaum describes this opportunity as “a great way for fans to get a photo with Ringo and raise money for the charity.” “There will be a wide assortment of Ringo Starr’s art from 2005 to the present. ‘Peace & Love’ is one of his newer, popular pieces,” said Segelbaum. Described as one of the highlights of Starr’s pop art releases, “‘Peace & Love,’ features Starr armed with spray paint cans proclaiming ‘Peace & Love,’ his mantra for the world.” Each piece is individually numbered and hand signed by Starr.

More information about the Lotus Foundation is available at www.ringostarrart.com/lotusfoundation. Ann Jackson Gallery is at 932 Canton Street in Roswell.

Since 2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album, The Mersey Beatles will be performing the entire album live in Kent.

On stage, Baird will be introducing the band, showing videos and talking about Liverpool and Beatleweek.


JONAS MEKAS: ‘AT THE TIME I SAW A LOT OF JOHN AND YOKO,AND I ALWAYS ENJOYED OUR TIME TOGETHER’

I began taking pictures in a serious way just after the second world war. I had been in a labour camp and, when the war ended, a displaced person’s camp in Germany; so my earliest images depicted the life of refugees.

I came to the US on 30 October 1949, aged 27. I knew someone in Chicago and he guaranteed me a job so I could get my green card. But when I landed in New York I decided it would be foolish to go anywhere else: it was electrifying, exciting. Everything was changing in the arts world – it was about to explode, with Marlon Brando, Ginsberg, the beat generation.

I didn’t care for the city itself; I barely noticed it. It was the intensity of life that caught me: I immersed myself in poetry, theatre, ballet and cinema. A few weeks after I arrived, I bought a 16mm film camera and started to make movies. The war had taken my growing-up period away from me, so I decided to catch up.

By 1960, I was editing Film Culture magazine, and that’s when I first met Yoko Ono. She was studying in New York and making her earliest work. In order to settle here, she needed a green card, so she came to me for a job. I was her sponsor.

A few years later, she went to London and met John Lennon. They returned together, and on his first night in New York, we all met for coffee. In December 1970 they came to the Invisible Cinema, a specially designed theatre I had just opened on Lafayette Street. I organised a little film festival and Yoko made two films for me in 10 days: one called Legs, and one called Fly. Legs consisted of a camera panning around different legs, mostly belonging to John and Yoko’s friends; Fly followed a fly in close up as it walked over the body of a nude female.

The cinema was designed for 70 people; when you were in your winged seat, you saw only the screen – not your neighbour or the person in front of you. The walls and seats were black velvet so that during the projection everything was dark but the film. In this photograph, we’re waiting for a movie to start.

At the time I saw a lot of John and Yoko, and I always enjoyed our time together. He was open, relaxed, very spontaneous. It felt like anything could happen, at any moment. Yoko was more controlled, but she was very warm and we remain good friends. She loved New York as much as I did. She once wrote to me from Japan, where she was working: “I’m coming to the end of my wits,” she wrote. “New York is my only town. Kiss the pavements… for me.”

It was through her that I came to dance with Fred Astaire, for her 1972 film, Imagine: he danced across a room, and I followed him, with no rehearsal. It was brief, but memorable.

I think Yoko is misunderstood. Those who blame her for the breakup of the Beatles – that’s not the woman I know. She and John were very sweet, very much in love. I’m lucky to have met them; I was lucky, too, that I had to leave my country, and arrive in New York when I did.
