The Old Sweet Shop is proud to present an exhibition of new drawings and prints by Tom J Newell.
A selection of Tom's original drawings from an on-going project to illustrate the 'Seventy-Two Spirits of Solomon' will be available to buy alongside a new print, hand-printed by Tom and Dan 'Phlegm' at Dan's home studio.
The gallery's back room will host a selected retrospective of Tom's drawings, paintings and prints, all of which will be on sale exclusively from The Old Sweet Shop.
The opening night will also see the launch of the gallery's new publication, 'Pick 'n' Mix'; an A5, 32 page, full-colour 'zine, compiled by Matt Jones and made up entirely of Tom's work. The Old Sweet Shop will continue to release 'Pick 'n' Mix' with guest artists for each issue to accompany future shows at the gallery.
In conjunction with Artfelt, funded by The Children’s Hospital Charity, Tom will be hosting a series of workshops with patients of Sheffield Children’s Hospital during the exhibition. The children will create a collection of 'Monster Magnets' based on the creatures from the SWEET DEMONS show, which will be exhibited alongside Tom's work at a 'Pop 'n' Crisps' daytime re-launch of the show later in the exhibition's run. Watch this space for details!
Join us at the gallery for opening night drinks provided by The Broadfield Ale House and The Kraken Rum, from 6pm 'til 9pm on Thursday 6th June, and after show ales 'n' spirits round the corner at The Broadfield from 9pm 'til Last Orders.
