Kirkby Gallery is delighted to present ‘Five’, a special exhibition showcasing the work of five of the best artists living or working in Knowsley – Gary McGillivray, Leslie Briggs, Gill Cowley, Mike Kirby and Nick Daly.
The exhibition explores the practice of each artist, with each one personally sharing an insight into how they develop their ideas from initial sketches to their finished work. During ‘The Artist’s Studio’, the artists from the exhibition will be visiting Kirkby Gallery for visitors to have the opportunity to observe them and talk to them about their work.
You can also see the great work of five young and budding artists from local schools outside the main exhibition. These children may grow up to be Knowsley’s next best artists and it would have all started here!
Five opens on 14 May 2018 and will run until 1 September 2018.
If you are teaching staff and would like to see the exhibition before the general public, you can attend the ‘Teacher First’ preview for a ‘behind the scenes walk and talk’.
The Teacher First preview takes place on 10 May 2018 from 3.45pm to 4.30pm and the exhibition then launches at 4.30pm (until 6.30pm) at a private view.
If you would to attend either the Teacher First event or the private view, you can book your place by contacting Tina Ball on 443 5617 or email@example.com
