Contemporary Art with a Rock n'Roll edge!

The Art Hound Gallery Pop Art 'Pop' Up at Benets' Cambridge, King's Parade

We're only just recovered from our first Central Cambridge 'Take Over'. Friday May 11th saw The Art Hound Team spread the Pop Art vibe to Benets' cafe on the famous King's Parade in the middle of Cambridge. As we hung works by Warhol and Robert Indiana, overlooking the stately King's College Chapel resulting in a fascinating juxtaposition, we pondered why many Cambridge people, living so close to London, seemed to often revel in a conservative approach to the arts, expressing amazement over the genres of work we stock. But our instinct that Cambridge needed a gallery with high end, cutting edge Modern and Contemporary works straight from the walls of the Tate was right...

The night was packed! Filled with members of The Art Hound Cult (that's you, our clients!) and eager new recruits. We even had to turn people away! 

We unveiled our first Cambridge Art viewing booth - 'America through an Englishman's Eyes' featuring work by Godfather of Pop Peter Blake, Sex Pistols Enfant Terrible Jamie Reid and the British originator of Pop Art Richard Hamilton. All was set to Elvis' 'American Trilogy'. This interactive art display had amazing feedback - especially from the Americans who experienced it. We'll be unleashing our signature Art Hound viewing booth at many an event, so make sure you experience it next time.

Alongside some legendary Cocktails from Benets, the first appearance of our wooden Andy Warhol and fascinating reactions to Steve Smythe's metallic works - we think we may have been the very first people to present a burlesque performer stripping to the New York Dolls next to a view of King's College Chapel. That's us in a nutshell. (Many thanks to Coeur De Plume!)
