On Saturday 1st July, Oberon Gallery of Leicester will welcome the critically-acclaimed artist, Leigh Lambert with a celebratory Blitz Street Party, to showcase his collection of originals, limited edition prints and sketches and original pieces – shown together for the first time in Leicester.
Inspired by his own childhood, his pieces feature monochromatic terraced streets with minimalistic colourful figures capturing the joy of youth at the time and evoking fond memories of a time gone by. His work has been described as “Restropective urban life with a quirky twist” and is highly sought after, with a lengthy waiting list – sometimes up to two years.
This ‘Saturday Showcase’ will allow guests to not only view his collection, but also meet Leigh in person. Purchases made on the day will also be personally signed by Leigh Lambert, too.
Hot on the heels of the successful Timmy Mallett event in April, Oberon Gallery of Leicester is passionate about Fine Art and backed by 30 years’ experience in the industry. The two-level gallery offers a unique experience and personal service in a relaxed and friendly environment.
Oberon Gallery Manager, Donna Marie Cross, comments; “I’m really excited to be bringing Leigh Lambert to Oberon Gallery for this very special event. Leigh is one of the most talented and identifiable artists of our generation and this is another gallery first for Oberon – and Leicester! We’re committed to not only making art accessible and enjoyable, but also something that is exclusive to Oberon Gallery”.
Open to the public as well as esteemed VIP guests, the Blitz Street Party will evoke times gone by when times were hard but life was good with catering by The Boot Room, drinks by Veeno and war-time entertainment from Pin Curls Vintage. So, don your tin hat and come and enjoy this unusual and evocative event, which takes place Saturday 1st July, 2-5pm.
