Laurel & Hardy Portraits
Friday 1 March - Tuesday 2 April (not Sundays)
VENUE: Bo'ness Library, Scotland's Close, Bo'ness EH51 0AH
The eternally popular 'Laurel & Hardy' provided inspiration to mosaic artist Ed Chapman in the creation of larger–than-life portraits of 'The Boys' which will be on display at Bo'ness Library during HippFest. Usually working with tiles or vinyl to create his mosaic portraits Mr Chapman utilised pennies for Stan Laurel, who was born in Ulverston, Cumbria, and cents for the US citizen Oliver Hardy.
Laurel & Hardy made more than 100 films between 1921 and 1951 and continue to influence generations of comedians and performers. Our thanks to Julian Pickford for allowing us to exhibit these works.
