Stony Stratford art hub the Stani Gallery is always a good bet if you are searching for stand-out, original art and on Sunday they’ll add works by MK based painter Peter Evershed to their collections.

Peter, as regular GO! readers will know already, is a prolific artist who still paints with gusto – at 88 years young.

The pictures being highlighted at Stani relate to the 1950s when Peter was based in New York and spent time capturing the jazz greats at work in various venues – Louis Armstrong, Nat King Cole, Miles Davis and Ray Charles are featured.

The limited print runs of the pictures – just 50 of each are available – are a treat for the eye, and music fans will love them.

Peter went from sleeping rough in Central Park to holding exhibitions in prime locations in NYC and other states including Washington, Philadelphia and San Antonio.

His work can be found in galleries and personal collections all over the world.
