“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.
