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.
