Here's Jeremy's write-up of yesterday's launch, from the local facebook group...
"What a wonderful day yesterday at the launch of Paul Magrs' exhibition at Fred's Ale House. The place was packed with lovely people being supportive.
Paul's paintings of Levenshulme look wonderful and the hospitality and care provided by Lawrence Hennigan and his staff was superb. Thanks also to Tony Hennigan for his help, to Tony Gribben for taking great event photos and to Wendy Orr for her fabulous buffet and amazing pie made with such love and care.
It was also great to have the support of so many of our local and national politicians both current and those standing in the coming elections. In particular Sir Gerald Kaufman gave a wonderful speech offering high praise for Paul and for Levenshulme.
More than anything thanks to the marvellous people of Levenshulme and to people who came from across Manchester and elsewhere in the country. Friends old and new showing their appreciation of Paul's paintings.
There was such a buzz yesterday. Levenshulme at its absolute best - warm, friendly, creative, inclusive and filled with love and laughter.
Paul's exhibition continues in Fred's and prints and cards are available to order. Now I've got to do a new print run to fill orders and restock after selling so much yesterday. Prints and cards of anything on display and more can be ordered by sending me a message through Facebook or emailing me - details at the exhibition.
Once again thank you. Levenshulme is an amazing place!"
