Mr John Ogden - Artist

A while ago now, through my connection with Bill Zucker -comedian, recording artist & long time friend of Mr Kelsey Grammar ("Frasier Crane") I was lucky enough to be introduced to an amazing artist - the wonderfully talented Mr John Ogden.

John is having an exhibition here in the UK at Room212 Gallery in Bristol, here are the details:

Mr John Ogden "Capturing The Dream"
July 10-17th 2011
Room212 Gallery Bristol

How to get to Room212
Room212 is on the Gloucester Road in Bristol, at number 212, near the junction with Bishop Road, one block down from the Golden Lion pub. This is the web address for the gallery: http://www.room212.co.uk/

Also pls see Johns own UK website for further details of his incredible works, how to purchase them and also details of his eagerly awaited Fan Club: http://www.johnogdencapturingthespirit.co.uk/  This is where you will also find John's ethos on working with, and bringing out the beauty within all women.

Just so you can see what you will be missing if you dont attend, here is where you can find a newly released (today) photo of his latest, as yet untitled, work: http://twitpic.com/5dukps

New Poem: "Mi Cantante Norseman"

Despair dissolves in pools of blue/green,
Occular Heaven!
The most astonishing sight I have ever seen,
My heart's beacon.

You speak - I dissolve into mist,
A state of Zen!
Your words merge, one, with me.
Mi Cantante Norseman.
