The 16th of August is the 35th anniversary of the passing of Elvis Presley, the legend that started rock ‘n’ roll and still inspires millions of people to this day. Generation gallery in the heart of Manchester city centre will host the Elvis fine art collection from the 16th of August until the 1st of September. www.generationgallery.com. “Elvis is iconic; a lot of performers today look to that for inspiration.” -Beyonce' “There have been a lotta tough guys. There have been pretenders. And there have been contenders. But there is only one king.” -Bruce Springsteen “He was a unique artist - an original in an area of imitators.” -Mick Jagger “Before Elvis, there was nothing.” -John LennonEach piece of artwork is officially approved and accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Graceland. The artwork on show, in some cases will have only been seen before by fans, if they were lucky enough to visit the home of Elvis in Memphis, Tennessee. We flew a number of pieces over at the beginning of the year to show at the European Elvis Championships which were held in Birmingham, the response from the fans was amazing. – Robert Marks, Gallery Manager.
