Renowned artist and bassist from 1970s ska icons The Specials will be at a night showcasing an exhibition of his pop art paintings on Thursday.

Too Much Too Young, at Evergreen Art Café in Daventry, will see Horace Panter paying tribute to some of his favourite musicians and iconography.

Following sell-out exhibitions in Birmingham and Singapore, Panter is now almost as famous for his art as his music with celebrity collectors including the likes of disco genius Nile Rodgers.

Ben Riley will also be showcasing his work.

Riley’s uses broken vinyl to create his pieces.

Audible Fidelity will be providing the sound track to the evening and showcasing some their audio equipment.

Art originals and limited edition prints from Panter and Riley will be available to buy on the night.

There will also be a free prize draw with the chance to win a signed print from each artist.

Audible Fidelity will also be giving away a set of Denon headphones and wireless music dock.

The night runs from 6.30pm to 9.30pm. Admission is free, but an invitation is required which will also be needed for entry into the prize draws. Call 01327 878 117 or email sales@evergreenartcafe.co.uk.
