Fifty Years of The Who by Colin Jones

London's Proud Galleries opens with a new exhibition this month, featuring a retrospective by photographer Colin Jones of iconic British band The Who. Whilst photographing the group, Jones built up a friendship with the band, gaining unlimited access to them on the road, backstage and at home.

In a series of intimate shots, Jones captures Keith Moon thrashing riotously at his drums, Pete Townshend sitting in front of the guitars he destroyed while performing and a candid shot of John Entwistle practising the guitar whilst his mother darns his socks.

New Exhibition: Hatch Show Print - Nashville Calling

London's CHELSEA Space Gallery has just opened a new exhibition dedicated to the American letterpress art of Hatch Show Print, based in Nashville, Tennessee. Established in 1879, well before TV advertising and the internet, Hatch Show Print used their bold letterpress designs to promote Country, Americana, Blues and Jazz musicians. Their bright and colourful artworks have featured the likes of Bessie Smith, Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong and Hank Williams.

Though best known for their work with musicians, Hatch Show Print originally began by making posters for religious meetings, local businesses and political rallies. Nashville Calling features archive artefacts, photographs, film and many of the signature poster designs created by the company from the 1920s to the present day. The exhibition explores Hatch's unique history and positioning as an information network, universally respected art and design agency and cultural icon.

Nashville Calling will run until 14th December 2013, and will be accompanied by a series of talks, lectures and music events to celebrate Hatch Show Print and its history. As with each exhibition at the CHELSEA Space gallery, a new illustrated publication will accompany the show.
