Rolf turns 80 this year, in celebration, Smart Art Galleries will be displaying a number of limited edition prints.

Ruskin Spear CBA - Spear attended the local art school before going on to the Royal College of Art in 1930. Because he used a wheelchair due to childhood polio, much of his work focused on his immediate surroundings. He rendered the citizens of Hammersmith relaxing in and around the local pubs, theaters and shops. A retrospective of Spear's work was held at the Royal Academy in 1980. His work is represented in the Tate Gallery Collection.

Carel Weight CBA - studied at the Hammersmith School of Art and Goldsmiths College. his first solo exhibition was held in the Cooling Gallery in 1933 and later exhibited in some major London galleries and throughout the UK. Some of his work is owned by the Tate Gallery and the Victoria and Albert Museum.

Leonard Rosoman - As well as exhibiting extensively in London and New York, Rosoman has also painted many murals including one for the Royal Academy of Arts restaurant (1986) and Lambeth Palace chapel ceiling (1988). His work is represented in many collections including the National Portrait Gallery, the British Museum and the Imperial War Museum, London where a retrospective of his work was held in 1989.

Will Carruthers presents: Natty Brooker, the art of Spacemen 3

INTERNATIONALLY acclaimed British artist Natty Brooker brings an exhibition of his groundbreaking work to Sheffield this July.

Natty Brooker is best know for his collaboration with legendary bands Spaceman 3 and Spiritualised and that work will be reflected in one of the year’s most important and exciting art displays.

Following successful shows in Los Angeles, Berlin, Copenhagen, Glasgow and London, The Art of Spaceman 3: The Hallucinatory Art of Natty Brooker, opens at SmartArtGalleries, at 249 Baslow Road, Sheffield, on July 17.

And with the artist now suffering from cancer, this will be a unique opportunity to buy an original piece of Natty Brooker art.

Curated by friend and former bandmate Will Carruthers, the show is the culmination of a lifetime’s work for the artist.

“Natty is a genius pure and simple,” said Will. “His influence as an artist on the British music scene was far reaching.”

The Art of Spaceman 3 has been brought to Sheffield by SmartArtGalleries owner Michael Mackevych, whose stable of well established local and national artists includes Joe Scarborough, Trevor Neal, Matt Wood, Mike Jackson, Lynne Wilkinson, Kate Jackson, Dennis Middleton and Jasper Prachek.

“Once again, SmartArtGalleries is bringing work of international significance to Sheffield,” said Michael. “With live music and DJ sets plus some special guests this is going to be a memorable opening and a great chance to see ground-breaking work by a major artist.”

The Art of Spaceman 3: The Hallucinatory Art of Natty Brooker, opens with a preview evening at SmartArtGalleries on July 17 from 8pm till late.
