That is a good point which could very well be interesting, let’s see if we can introduce them to each other as their style and content is very similar

Please take a few minutes to read the story on the link in the original post, Interesting read and well worth checking out Paul’s back story

Paul has helped the Disabled Supporters club In the past raising several thousand pounds for them from sales of his work

This time he is helping the Dunfermline Athletic Heritage Club from sales of the prints of the originals (which have now been sold to private buyers)

I am happy to take orders for the prints if you email me directly, just click on 1970par for my email addy

If you collect on the exhibition day then you can have your prints signed by the artist and players who played in the Trilogy of great European ties at East End Park

Good sales again today with people taking this opportunity to purchase a one of set of beautiful artwork, most people are taking the set of three but a few taking a single piece which is equally fine

Snap them up as the numbers available are limited

Currently there are 52 pre ordered prints, the current order is for x 75 (25 of each) if we need more then it is a possibility but we don’t really want to be left with some we can’t sell so the best thing to do is to place a pre order to avoid disappointment

Print sales have been steady and are going well, drop me an email should you want to place a pre order

I’m really looking forward to the exhibition day, sure to be lots of interest in Paul’s beautiful originals, those who have purchased these will have a truly unique piece of the Pars history adorning their home

The prints are your chance to have these beautiful paintings at a vastly reduced price form the originals

Buy them now and you will have Christmas/ Birthday presents for a family member sorted

Come along to see the originals on exhibition day and meet the Pars Legends who played in these historic games for our club

They will sign prints and have a chat about what it meant to play on the European stage in the 1960’s

Four of the heroes of the sixties who played in the three featured games have agreed to come along, chat to supporters about their memories of the games, and sign the limited edition prints. The Former Players Association have been most supportive. They are talking to additional players over the next few days.

We will have players covering all three games.

For example, can you imagine owning a Roy Barry signed print of the Slovan Bratislava game? That would be something special in my eyes......

Appeared on the clubs twitter page and on COWS so plenty interest in the exhibition

Prints selling steadily, the opportunities to be in the first (and perhaps only) batch of x75 (25 of each print) are now limited, best to get in early to ensure you don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to own these fantastic prints

An art exhibition at a football match, not the first which was at Hampden earlier in the year for Queens Park but very forward thinking of the Club to allow this to happen

See the collection of the original works above, this would give an idea of how the prints would look together

Come along and see the originals in the flesh at the exhibition day before they go their separate ways to their new owners, probably the only chance there will ever be to see them in one place

You can have prints of these originals for a fraction of the price, come along and have them signed by players who actually played in these iconic games and meet the artist, my good friend Paul Town

Hi TwinPar,

The exhibition will be in the Purvis suite (where hospitality is) there will be time before Hospitality starts to come along 11am -12 noon to meet the artist and former players, collect your prints have them signed if desired and of course view the splendour of the three original works before they go their separate ways with their new owners

We do intend to try to get up into Legends after the match to allow those in that area to view, this will obviously depend on Legends opening post match so no guarantee that may happen and the former players will not be there at that time

Really best to come along 11-12 or of course book hospitality and make a day of it, I think the normal former guest player for the day is Kenny Watson (not to be confused with the former players we have invited who played in the matches featured in the paintings)

I hope this answers your question

We now have orders for x77 prints, more than the original plan was to have produced

We need to increase the order and satisfy the demand

Great to see the club also making a few pounds with people taking hospitality, sure to be a busy day and something a little different from the norm with the art exhibition and the European players present

As stated above the clubs guest is Kenny Watson, I loved him as a player, if I remember correctly he went off to South Africa to be a dentist

We have increased the order now due to demand but it is really best to place a reserve order to ensure you are not disappointed, these are a limited edition and won’t be publicly available

We can confirm that we have four of the players who played in the featured games coming along for definite, plus another couple who hope to make it.

Thanks to the Former Players' Association for all their help in this regard.

All the games are covered.

Players confirmed at this stage are Willie Callaghan, Roy Barry, Alex Smith and Bert Paton.

Come along, pick up your pre-ordered prints and chat to the lads who actually played in those wonderful games. 11 am - 12 noon in the Purvis Suite. They would be happy to sign your prints.

Profits go to the DAFC Heritage Trust who are putting up historical information boards around the ground currently, and many other activities to promote the history of the Club.

Pre-order to be safe: contact Kenny.mclachlan7@googlemail.com

If you go on COWS , you will be able to see Paul’s presentation on his Hampden Trilogy which I had the pleasure to help with earlier this year

This was (we believe) the first art exhibition ever to take place in Scotland at a stadium before a match, DAFC are the second Club to have that accolade

It’s worth a look to see Paul’s thinking and influences are and how he constructs his paintings, he’s just a normal working class lad who loves to paint old fashioned stadiums
