Alex Lowe Acoustic Show & Art Exhibition - with guest DJ Alan McGee



Brit Pop Kingpin & President of Creation Records Alan McGee comes to Sheffield on Saturday 28 April to launch exhibition at city gallery with exclusive DJ set

Alan McGee will be attending the exhibition at Smart Art Galleries which is the first major showcase of paintings by abstract artist Alex Lowe.

The event is in support of Teenage Cancer Trust and will be taking place on 28 April from 7 till 10pm at the Galleries in Totley, Sheffield.  Admission is free with donations on the night going to the charity.  Andrew Hunt, Smart Art Galleries said:  "We are supporting Teenage Cancer Trust because the charity recognises the importance of providing the essential care and education required to ensure young people have the best chance of life”.

Alex Lowe, the former front man of Creation Records act Hurricane #1, launches his new career at the event with full support of his former label boss.  Alan McGee, the man who discovered and signed Oasis, Jesus & Mary Chain, Primal Scream and Hurricane #1 to his legendary label Creation Records has described Alex Lowe as “a great artist, good singer and an amazing painter. 2012 will be his.”

Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity dedicated to improving the quality of life and chances of survival for the six young people aged between 13 and 24 diagnosed with cancer every day.  The charity builds specialist units within NHS hospitals, bringing young people together to be treated by teenage cancer experts in a place designed just for them. 

Teenage Cancer Trust has funded, built and now maintains 21 of these units across the UK including two in Sheffield, one at Weston Park Hospital and one at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital.  The charity plans to build a further 11 so that all young people needing hospital treatment for cancer across the UK have access to the dedicated, specialist support they provide, no matter where they live.
Alex Lowe shot to fame in the late 90’s as the singer with Hurricane #1 who lit up the Brit Pop era with a string of top 40 hit singles and two top 20 albums.  His new vocation, however, is taking him to even wider reaches than his illustrious Brit Pop career. Woody Allen, Mike Tyson, Donald Trump all own original paintings by Alex Lowe as does his old boss Alan McGee.  Alex Lowe and Alan McGee are also working on a new art project entitled ‘The Aquarian Conspiracy’ which is due to appear in spring 2012. There are no further details at present but Alex promises that it will be “genius with a twist”.

The exhibition at Smart Art Galleries will also include an acoustic set by Alex Lowe. Alex has continued to write and perform music alongside his painting and plans to release new music this year.
