The Icon Collection - Don't Blink...!

On Saturday Paul Horton was here at the Acorn gallery to unveil his stunning 'Icon Collection'. The five new releases are very special as there are only 25 of each one available!

Each image was shrouded in black and unveiled piece by piece... The audience were enthralled as Paul told the story behind each character and each iconic scene...

Champagne corks popped and nibbles were nibbled as Paul chatted to the collectors who had come along to share this proud day...
One lady had proudly brought in her pride and joy...two of the Noahs Ark pieces which she had bought in previous years with the intention of eventually passing them on to her two sons... She is now the proud owner of a third Noahs Ark 'Man of God' which she is delighted with!

Part way through the day we were told by Washington Green that The 'Icon Collection' is now fully sold out and the only images still available are those in galleries.

At the time of writing we have just three images remaining and the details are as follows:

'Love Shines Down' No.21 of 25 Priced at £995

'The Powerful Truth' No.21 of 25 Priced at £995

'The Legend' No.21 of 25 Priced at £995.

We have just one of each and they will be sold on a first come, first served basis.
Amazingly we still have two originals available, both uniquely exquisite! Firstly the Wizard in a piece entitled 'I Will Lead You Out of Darkness', simply stunning and priced at a very shrewd £2,250.

Paul Horton - Getting Excited!

Here at the Acorn Gallery we are getting very excited about Saturday's imminent appearance by the legendary Paul Horton!

Paul will be here to unveil his fantastic new 'Icon Collection'. This is a superb collection of five brand new and incredibly limited editions... with only 25 of each image being printed! 

Each piece celebrates one of Pauls central characters who appears throughout his work, each on their own journey...

The five images, some of the largest prints produced to date, will be unveiled one by one, by Paul, as he tells it's story to the waiting audience... 

This little bit of theatre will enthrall and entrance you and in doing so will help you to truly appreciate this stunning new collection!

So, come on down to the Acorn Gallery on Saturday, 11 June... Paul will be here from 12 noon and you can help us celebrate the launch of this fantastic new work with a glass of chilled bubbly and hopefully some summer sunshine...

Alexanders Angel...

We have just taken delivery of the brand-new Alexander Miller sculpture entitled 'The Angel'... 

This iconic piece is simply stunning and shows the much loved gadgie at his best! Nobody can ignore the link to the artists own background as a window cleaner and knowing this you can't help but see this piece as the cornerstone to any collection and it will certainly be an item of pride in years to come!

Of course the obvious link is to Anthony Gormley and his famous 'Angel of the North' but Alexander Miller's gadgie, with his good nature and his heart of gold, has captured our hearts and he is, in his own way, 'The Angel' of the North...
