Rowson works go under the hammer

Martin Rowson Creations in Bad Faith
Bloghorn attended a charity auction at the Martin Rowson exhibition Creations in Bad Faith on Tuesday (June 8).

The exhibition features artwork from New Humanist magazine, which is published by the Rationalist Association.

Many items were sold for quite impressive sums, with the artwork for Rowson’s meeting of Richard Dawkins and God, above, and for his “God Trumps” series – Top Trumps-style cards on world religions – being particularly fought over. Radio presenter and New Humanist writer Laurie Taylor was auctioneer.

The show runs at the Menier Gallery in Southwark, London, until Saturday (June 12) and many items are still for sale. Admission is free. More details here.

And, don’t miss … You have until June 18 to see the show Alex in Love at the Last Tuesday Society in Hackney. Your correspondent saw this last week and it is very much recommended.

If you’re not a regular Alex reader– perhaps you have no interest in City matters – fear not because the strips, as the title suggests, are all about love, sex and relationships. And they are very funny.

The exhibition is free, but if you pay £1 you can also get access to the Last Tuesday Society‘s “museum of curiosity”, a chance to see shrunken heads, some creepy taxidermy and all manner of bizarre artworks. Not for the faint of heart.
