Brighton Exhibition of Bob Layzell Artwork in May

Renowned SF artist Bob Layzell is due to open a retrospective exhibition of his work at the Dynamite Gallery in Brighton in May.

Bob, who is now in his 70s , is renowned as an incredible cover artist. He produced classic cover art for many science fiction novels in the 1970s, including works by Harry Harrison, Barrington J. Bayley, Robert Silverberg, Isaac Asimov and J. G. Ballard.

This will be Bob Layzell’s first ever show, and will open with a private viewing on 2nd May at which attendees collect a free poster and meet the artist. The artist will also be available to sign those posters on two other dates to be confirmed. Originals and Limited Edition Prints will be on sale throughout the show, including a new pieceĀ created especially for this exhibition, to be auctioned off on the 10th May.

Those interested in attending the private viewing are encouraged to contact the gallery at the address given.

About Donna Scott

Chair of the BSFA since June 2013. Prior to this I was Awards Administrator, taking over that role from Claire Briarley in 2008. I am officially Donna Bond since getting married in May 2013, but continue to write and perform under my previous name, Donna Scott. My short fiction stories have been published in various anthologies and magazines, and I was winner of the inaugural Short Cuts at the MAC in 2005. As a comedian, I have performed all over the UK. Comedy has also given me the opportunity to perform alongside big names like Sarah Millican and Jasper Carrott! As a poet, I've also performed all over the place, including lots of science fiction conventions, and sometimes my poetry and comedy get kind of mixed up. I was the first official Bard of Northampton, it's true. I've got a tankard that says so... I love being a part of the BSFA - I've always been a devourer of books and being part of this association has enabled me to explore some great science fiction classics - and classics of the future, that I might otherwise have not heard about. I've met some lovely people with an enthusiasm for the genre, made firm friends, and got to meet some of my favourite writers, too! As a writer, I also have to say that FOCUS is the best magazine for writers I've ever come across - and as a member I get that for free. Who wouldn't want to be a part of this?
