For just £100 (in return for the many benefits listed below) you will become one of only 100 fine art patrons of the first major museum retrospective of Chris Gollon’s work: CHRIS GOLLON: Beyond The Horizon as we publish an ISBN-numbered 42-page full-colour fine art catalogue to accompany the exhibition. This first retrospective focuses on Gollon’s music-related works and will run 12th Oct 2019 to 4th Jan 2020.

To celebrate this occasion, in an edition of only 100 Limited Edition EPs, each signed and numbered by her, Eleanor McEvoy has recorded a very special acoustic version of her song ‘Gimme Some Wine’, which was inspired by Gollon’s painting ‘Dreaming of Leaving’, which in turn was inspired by the song Eleanor co-wrote with Lloyd Cole. She wrote ‘Gimme Some Wine’ in response to Chris’s work and dedicated the song to him. He in turn was then inspired by it to paint the 2017 ‘Gimme Some Wine’ series of paintings, the last of which (reproduced on the CD) will be in both the exhibition and catalogue. The other 3 tracks ‘Heaven Help Us’, ‘The Thought of You’ and ‘Look Like Me’ are from her album NAKED MUSIC, which was also a collaboration with Chris Gollon, and which inspired 26 paintings).
