Tonight, is the opening night of artist Colin Gabbidon's exhibition of twenty of his paintings at The Drum in Aston, Birmingham. In Birmingham & the People Of, Colin has captured the beauty of Birmingham city, the people and their rich cultures from the 1920s to the present day. Featuring oil paintings, pastels and water colours, the exhibits trace Birmingham's historical landmarks through the decades. Colin has already exhibited his art in Germany and in his home town of Birmingham at the Symphony Hall and Central Library, but this will be his first major solo exhibition. When he's not painting, he's the drummer with reggae group Gabbidon, and was a founder member of the internationally-renowned Steel Pulse. You can find out more about Colin's career here and see some of his paintings at the gallery section, here. (Above) Colin's painting of a church in Germany.
