Adrian Salmon Exhibition at the Lass O’Gowrie

Manchester pub the Lass O’Gowrie is currently playing host to an exhibition of DWM artist and all round striking artist Adrian Salmon.

Adrian Salmon ExhibitionSalmon, from Lytham, is a comic book artist and illustrator whose early work included The Cybermen for Doctor Who Magazine and Judge Karyn for the Judge Dredd Megazine. Salmon later became better known as a comic book colourist, working primarily on the Doctor Who strip and various Panini superhero titles.

He was commissioned to work on the ongoing ‘Time Team’ series of articles for Doctor Who Magazine, providing illustrations of the televised Doctor Who stories. He also provides the cover artwork for the Bernice Summerfield range of audio CDs produced by Big Finish Productions. He’s also published a graphic novel, The Faceless: A Terry Sharp Story.

It’s always a pleasure to announce a new artist on display, and none more than old favourite Adrian Salmon. We’ve had a few pieces of Adrian’s work up before, but not on this scale and never any of his much sought after and iconic Cybermen work.

Collected pieces include The Ice Warriors, Pertweeman!, The Ribos Operation, The Armageddon Factor, The Dominators, The Underwater Menace, The Feast of Stephen, The Macra Terror, The Caves of Androzani, The Invasion, Resurrection of the Daleks, The Cybermen; The Dead Heart #2, The Cybermen; The Dead Heart #4, The Cybermen; Ugly Underneath #1 and The Cybermen; Flesh Unbound #2

Ade’s work will be on display in the Snug for the foreseeable future, and Ade himself may be down in the future as part of a very special event we are planning to coincide with the Manchester Literary Festival.

Owner Gareth Kavanagh is thrilled to give the pieces on display an airing, all of which are from his private collection. "I’ve been a huge fan of Ade’s work for years and he’s a definite "one off! Comic gurus and Who fans of all ages will love what they see, trust me."
