Art Preview: Anthony Frost and Sir Terry Frost at the Brook Gallery, Budleigh Salterton

We're hoping to feature dynastic artist, zig-zag wanderer and rag meat raconteur Anthony Frost as guest on our May 2nd show.

Many Exeter residents will have seen Anthony's of paintings and prints at the Royal Albert Memorial Museum just before it closed for refurbishment. Anthony is based in Zennor near St Ives and his work features around town with three paintings at the Salthouse Gallery, an annual exhibition at the Porthminster, and Frost family allsorts at the Tate. Visitors to London might have seen his major shows of paintings at Beaux Arts - where the Frosts have the distinction of being shown across three generations - and prints at Advanced Graphics, shortly to travel to the Armoury in New York.

Closer to our Devon HQ, Anthony has a father-son double-header coming up at the Brook Gallery, Budleigh Salterton: his own work will be shown from 27th March to 15th April immediately followed by the work of the late Sir Terry Frost from 16th April to 7th May. 

The exhibition coincides with the launch of the long awaited catalogue raisonne of the prints of Sir Terry Frost. Please contact the gallery for details of the standard edition and deluxe edition of only 100 which includes a print by the artist.

Anthony has involvements across the arts. He's painted album covers and back drops for The Fall and survived the odd night on the sauce with Mark E. Smith. He occasionally acts in the play 'Art' with Bob Devereux and Phil Bowen and is the brother of comedian Stephen Frost. And poet and novelist Simon Armitage is a friend who has contributed to his last several exhibition catalogues.

We're looking forward to some great music - Anthony works to music and is a devotee of Dinosaur Jr, Captain Beefheart and P.J.Harvey among others - to accompany the repartee as Anthony looks back over his life and career and tells us where Fast 'n' Bulbous are taking him next.
