‘I Love you Because’
by Team Beswick and Pye
When A-Side B-Side Gallery discovered that this Summer marked the 60th anniversary of
Elvis Presley going into Sun Studios and making his first ever recording they said:
“Let’s have a party!”
30 artistic Elvis fans have contributed a painting, photo or drawing of The King and 30 others
have written a personal tribute. The show was curated by Chloe Mortimer and Harry Pye.
Chloe says: “Elvis Presley was strikingly handsome and his singing touched the hearts of millions.
For some, the Elvis story may have ended in 1977 but for me it goes on. He was always there for
me and I find that even now he’s always on my mind.”
Catherine & Tinsel: “A-Side B-Side Gallery is proud to be the host of a show dedicated to the
King of Rock and Roll. For 6 decades Elvis has inspired many artists including Peter Blake (who
has made 6 shrines to Elvis) and Andy Warhol (whose double Elvis work recently sold for 37
million dollars). The contributors to “I Love You Because” are from all over the world, we hope we
can squeeze everyone in and look forward to seeing you there!”
The first 500 visitors to the gallery will receive a free copy of “The Rebel magazine’s Elvis Special”
sponsored by Immprint.
