One Vision brings new town art gallery to life
A FORMER college friend of Queen frontman, Freddie Mercury is to open a gallery in Cirencester.
Adrian Morrish, is launching the Boldeye Gallery as a homage to his late wife, Stella who died in December, 2018. “My drive and passion for my career in the creative world was focused by my life partner and wife Stella,” says Adrian, pictured with his daughter Olivia. Adrian befriended the young Freddie at Isleworth Polytechnic College in Middlesex after he fled with his family from the Zanzibar Revolution in 1964 and he remembers him fondly as ‘quite a character’ even back then.
Adrian, who now lives in Cirencester, says he has been impressed by the art in the Cotswolds. “The quality of the art I have seen here is to be taken seriously and my gallery is going to be a showcase for it,” he says.
His first exhibitor is local artist, Tracey Elphick. Over the coming months he intends to show a range of art from paintings, ceramics, photography, sculpture and mixed media.
The Boldeye Gallery opens at West Way, Cirencester, on Tuesday, June 11.
