Thanks to an initiative spearheaded by Guernsey Arts, in partnership with local bank, Skipton, there are numerous exciting events planned to celebrate the Fab Four and their impact on islanders.
In July, the ‘Twist & Shout’ Beatles exhibition will launch. Taking place from 21 July through to 2 September at the greenhouse gallery this exciting exhibition will celebrate the 13 albums of The Beatles, recorded from 1962- 1969.
Guernsey Arts have asked 26 local artists to visually interpret songs from these albums, celebrating the legacy of the Beatles as storytellers. Guernsey talent from the era is also being celebrated, with the legacy of local photographer Fiona Adams being referenced. Fiona’s image of the band for the ‘Twist & Shout!’ E.P. the cover has been declared one of the defining images of the 20th Century by the National Portrait Gallery.
Guernsey Arts will also be celebrating the work of Peter Le Vasseur, who sold a selection of his pieces to Ringo Starr and visually interpreted a song for the original Beatles Illustrated Song Book.
