Samuel Johnson Don't miss your chance to see a popular London artist Ed Gray's work along with the street sketches that inform it in this wonderful, secret, historic London location. Gray is a chronicler of London who has painted the evolving story of London life over many years. Inspired by the hurly-burly of Hogarth's London Gray's mission is to unearth the passion and energy of the city by sketching London souls and preserving their precious interactions on canvas to share with the viewer. The London that every Londoner knows is here in all its multiple manifestations of joy, misery, industry and exhaustion. Migrants mix with city workers and street hustlers in a truly soulful depiction of 21stà‚ century London. Lovers, fighters, workers, gossips, carousers and the broken and damaged spill from the street to the pages of his sketchbook and finally onto canvases that celebrate the industry, passion and drive of actual Londoners and their part in the continuing story of London. Gray's admiration for 15thC religious artist Piero Della Francesca is reflected in this fantastically atmospheric historic venue. St Pancras Church was built in 1820, and if you listen carefully, you can almost hear the whispers of London Souls from days gone by. The Private View will feature soulful folk music from musician Burton Bradstock who will present a night of reimagined 19th Century English songs from the time the crypt was built. Burton will be accompanied by Dorian Ford on piano. www.burtonbradstockmusic.com London Souls The Crypt Gallery, St Pancras Church Euston Rd London NW1 2BA Tel: 020 7703 8396 info@gxgallery.com Sales & enquiries: www.gxgallery.com info@gxgallery.com 020 7703 8396 For further press information please contact: Anne Noble-Partridge annenp@edgrayart.com http://www.edgrayart.com/ http://www.flickr.com/photos/edgrayart http://www.youtube.com/user/EdGrayArtTV
