JOE COFFEY HOODLIFE EXHIBITION OPENING

Last night Joe Coffey's HoodLife exhibition was formally opened at The Cornerstone in Langworthy in a blaze of rap, lightshows and prints selling like hotcakes.

Even Peter Hook tried to get his hands on a print of the Hacienda but they had already sold out.

HoodLife is on until January 2011 and is not to be missed.

Full details and photos of the opening here…

Everyone was busy looking for artist Joe Coffey all night. But for most of the time the painter dubbed `The New Lowry' was sat in a back room signing prints, such was the demand.

The Cornerstone in Langworthy was turned into a happening venue for the night, as a slideshow of Coffey's work was projected onto the walls, while top rappers Briggzy and Samir made a special guest appearance.

Over sixty people attended the opening of the exhibition, which runs for three months, and virtually everyone there took a print home waiting for it to rise in value as Joe Coffey inevitably becomes more well known.

In fact the prints were selling so well that New Order's Peter Hook, working in Perth, Australia, couldn't even get hold of a Coffey Hacienda print. He sent his mate Twinny to the exhibition to get one but they had already sold out.

Joe Coffey's HoodLife runs at The Langworthy Cornerstone, 451 Liverpool Street, Salford M6 5QQ until Jan 2011. Open 9am-5:30pm Mon-Fri.

Prints can be bought at the exhibition for £10

Stef has been blocked from putting up posters in the local Height Library for a jumble sale and art auction in aid of restoring the old Height Youth Club, been forced to stand down as chair of that campaign and has been met with a volley of political abuse on social media. What's going on?
