"World Tour" by Peter Blake. Now showing at the Mary Ryan Gallery in NYC through June 18, 2011

Peter Blake is known as the Godfather of Pop Art.  He designed the cover art for the iconic “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” by the Beatles.  The British artist’s latest exhibition “World Tour,” marks his 3rd solo exhibit in New York since 1962.  Using digital technology, including computer manipulation, scanning and ink jet printing, Peter Blake pays tribute to New York, Venice, Paris and Los Angeles in his colorful and whimsical collages.

You will not want to miss seeing these wonderful works in person. The detail alone will make you get lost in the worlds Peter Blake has reimagined.  Head over to the Mary Ryan Gallery, located at 527 West 26th Street in New York and take in Blake’s “World Tour.”  “World Tour” by Peter Blake runs until June 18, 2011.

I attended the gala opening night reception and I got to meet Peter Blake!  I expressed how much I love his work and he was extremely nice!
