Took a walk down to Sharrowvale Street Market in Sheffield and called into A Month Of Sundays Pete McKees Art Gallery.If you are ever in Sheffield visit this gallery to see some fantastic paintings many with a music theme.
LMM are huge fans of this brilliant,witty artist and are proud to have known him for a number of years.Check out his website for samples of his work http://www.therealmckee.co.uk/
I blogged at length about Pete some months ago in a blog called The Godlike Genius Of Pete Mckee which you can read here http://www.lmmuk.com/agentblog/?p=530 but today was the first day I got to look around his fantastic gallery.
In the Gallery you can find many examples of his work including a bespoke Mckee scooter and a pair of the limited edition desert boots he designed for Clarks.
Of course there are many of his best prints and some great originals in this two floor space.You can buy many of these and also some beautiful merchandise including cuff links,T Shirts,scarfs and postcards.
We came away with a copy of the 22 Views Of Sheffield Book as a present for a family member but we are now wondering whether to keep it!!
We also got a set of charity Christmas cards.
In keeping with the space and the cool atmosphere there was some 60s music playing and we were lucky enough to bump into Pete and his missus to have a bit of a chat.
If you are in the area pop in…if not visit his website and find out why Noel Gallagher,Paul Weller,Richard Hawley,Paul Smith and LMM etc etc are all big fans
