Hurry – Pete Dredge exhibition finishes this Friday

June 13, 2017 in General

The Bank Street Gallery in Kirriemuir, Angus has been hosting the work of one of the PCO’s most esteemed gag cartoonists.

Some gallery regulars will be familiar with Pete’s wonderful cartoons through his contribution to the Gallery’s celebration of Private Eye’s 50th birthday in 2011. Most people, however, will recognise the great man’s work by virtue of his being published in pretty much any British newspaper or magazine you’d care to mention.

Pete’s beautifully judged captions perfectly complement his seemingly effortless, brilliant penmanship: a combination guaranteed to tickle the viewer’s funny bone with hilarious regularity. Indeed, you would be wise to follow the gallery’s advice:

“Make sure you give yourself a little time to wander around the Gallery.  Every cartoon will bring a smile if not an outright guffaw.”

  3. Fantastic artist whose work in Oink! I simply adored as a child and which holds up remarkably well today!  Pete, your work made a huge impact on us as kids and you were one of that hilarious group from that comic who formed the senses of humour of so many impressionable young ‘uns like me!

  4. Thanks Phil. I’m deeply touched.(I hope you’re not mistaking me for someone else.)
