Join us for a special viewing of Graham Hudson’s Jimi Hendrix collection – celebrating 80 years of the rock icon.
Graham’s fascination with Jimi Hendrix began as a nine-year-old boy, sneaking into his brother’s bedroom to listen to music. Since discovering one of Hendrix’s albums, he has felt an almost celestial connection with the artist. Graham has now spent the past 45 years trying to decipher the profound impact Jimi Hendrix has had on his life, expressing his thoughts through his artwork.
Now – for the first time – Mustard Tree will be exhibiting a collection of Graham’s Jimi Hendrix paintings to commemorate 80 years of the rock icon.
Works will be available to purchase on the evening, with a percentage of the proceeds being donated to Mustard Tree.
The event will take place on the ground floor of our Ancoats hub outside of public hours. For any queries, please email email@example.com.
Thursday 24th November, 5:30pm – 8pm
Mustard Tree, 110 Oldham Road, Ancoats, M4 6AG
A word from Graham
“Mustard Tree gave me the opportunity to paint again when I arrived at the centre in 2009, when I was in desperate need of love and support. I received both along with much needed forgiveness and chances. As a service user and volunteer, I began and developed a series of Creative Programmes. Creativity and the opportunity to express it have helped change my life massively, positively and continues to do so”.
