To commemorate what would have been John Lennon's 75th birthday we will be showing several prints by gallery artist Gerry Deiter taken during John Lennon and Yoko Ono historic 1969 eight day Bed-in For Peace at the Queen Elizabeth Hotel in Montréal.

Gerry Deiter has written capturing the event: “Being present at the birth of that powerful anthem to peace had a special significance to me, helping me to embark on a new life, both professionally and spiritually. It was a time for revolution, of social and political upheaval that, like the words and music of Give Peace a Chance, echoes down through the decades and inspires us today to bring peace, compassion and justice to the world.”
