Legends of Rock & Roll at ViewPoint Gallery
In what turned out to be the best-attended show ever at Halifax’s ViewPoint Gallery, March 2003 saw over 850 curious visitors stop by for a look. So many came to the Artist Talk that the Marquee Club across the street was booked to accommodate them. The popularity attracted the attention of a local rock radio station which was urging listeners to be sure to drop in. Comedian Mike Smith, who plays Bubbles in the popular Trailer Park Boys TV show is a huge rock fan, and came by for a look. Here is a photo of him with Eric at the show.
Following on the success of the ViewPoint show, Eric was invited to bring the show to the Sherman Hines Gallery in Liverpool, NS, and then to the Desbrisay Museum in Bridgewater, NS. You may be interested to know that Liverpool, Nova Scotia, sits on the banks of the Mersey River, just as it does in England, an appropriate venue for the show seeing as how it featured 2 of the Beatles.
