FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

Catalina Island Museum Announces Opening of Pattie Boyd Photography Exhibition

 

AVALON – April 4, 2011

 

Having inspired such classic songs as The Beatles’ Something and Eric Clapton’s Layla and Wonderful Tonight, Pattie Boyd is undoubtedly one of the most celebrated women to have witnessed the 1960s.  Her marriage to George Harrison in 1966 allowed her to witness personally the revolution The Beatles inspired in fashion, art and music.  After separating from Harrison in 1974, she married Eric Clapton, who is considered one of the greatest blues and rock’n’roll guitarists of our era.  Exhibiting over 50 photographs that are rarely seen together, Yesterday and Today: The Beatles and Eric Clapton as Photographed by Pattie Boyd was organized by Ms. Boyd for a special exhibition at the Catalina Island Museum.  Boyd’s photography has captivated international art critics for their unique brand of intimacy and the insight they lend into the private lives of George Harrison, Eric Clapton, The Beatles, and Pattie Boyd herself.

 

Opening Reception for Yesterday and Today: The Beatles and Eric Clapton as Photographed by Pattie Boyd

The opening reception for Yesterday and Today will take place on Saturday, May 7th from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m..  Tickets to the opening reception are free for museum members and $5.00 for the general public.  This exhibition will run until July 31, 2011.

 

A Rare Personal Appearance and Book Signing by Pattie Boyd

The public is also invited to a rare personal appearance by Pattie Boyd at the Catalina Island Museum on July 2, 2011 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM.  During the reception Ms. Boyd will be signing her best-selling book Wonderful Tonight, George Harrison, Eric Clapton and Me, which will be available for purchase in the Museum Store.  Tickets to this event are free for museum members and $10.00 for the general public.
