Kenny Schachter's Rove Gallery Hoxton Show is a great success

The Friends and Family show made the news today. The London Evening Standard used up all of page three to tell a story involving Tracey Emin's bronze sculpture which is one of many exhibits on show at the Rove gallery until April the 15th. http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/standard/article-24039216-breakdancer-party-girl-sends-emin-art-flying.do

While Hazza was "working the room"  upstairs, Joffers was manning the ever popular 99p art shop. In this photo you can see him standing behind a happy shopper who has just snapped up 2 old 7 inch singles with brand new designer sleeves.
Various celebs were at the bash including Rolling Stone Bill Wyman:

Live music was provided by Raff Law & friends who despite being young in years were all surprisingly good
The price for the Emin sculpture is believed to be about £10,000 . The point of J&H's contribution is that everyone can be a collector even if they are down to their last £1.

There aren't many left but if you're lucky you may still be able to purchase a J&H 99p mono print which was inspired by Tracey Emin. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder - some will say Joffe and Pye's prints are better than the real thing.

Please note: Although some of the individual 99 items have now sold out all though it's still possible to buy a £99 limited edition box that features one example of each product.
