Above is the address of the facebook group for the exhibition 'Frankophilia', a dedicated memorial exhibition to the late and great Frank Sidebottom.

Earlier this year, fans responded to the sad news of the death of Frank’s creator, Chris Sievey, with a touchingly creative mourning. Images of all kinds of Frank-inspired objects made their way on-line; artwork made in response to the news, or years previously out of sheer Frank-love. Frankophilia is an attempt to collate this disparate creativity and revel in its beautiful daftness.We know Frank’s fans are a creative lot and we want your drawings, paintings, cardboard sculptures - anything in the image of Mr Sidebottom! From doodles to papier-mâché to full-blown animation, well-loved and tatty or made especially with Frankophilia in mind, everything is welcome.

Forthcoming exhibition of fans' artwork of Frank Sidebottom...illustration, animation, sculpture, scarecrows..!

Wed 17 Nov - Sat 18 Dec (Wed - Sat, 12 - 5)

Opening event: Tues 16th Nov, 6-8pm

Chapman Gallery,

University of Salford
