On the first Thursday of every month, the galleries and museums of East London open their doors late for a chance to see amazing art, culture, and events after hours. In November, after months of planning we finally launched the first solo exhibition by music photographer Tom Sheehan. We think it was well worth the wait. See how we got on and who we bumped into here.
Analogue by Tom Sheehan Private View
This exhibition had been planned way back in the summer so by the time November came around I was itching to tell everyone about the new show from Tom Sheehan. We got everything set up and were kindly given two big boxes of lager from the wonderful Saint Beer company.
The show opened at 6pm and by 6.45pm we were already at full capacity. I couldn’t open the beer bottles fast enough!
Everyone wanted to know more about the photographs and Tom spend lots of time talking through is work with people and explaining the techniques used.
At one point I started chatting with a guy called John who was a music producer. He told me he’d produced The Stone Roses XTC, The Fall and was responsible for The Bends by Radiohead. It wasn’t until the next day I realised that it was super famous producer John Leckie. EEK!
The night was such a great success and there wasn’t a drop of lager left!
Mon – Sun: 11pm – 7pm
