The Liverpool Academy of Arts
As we are celebrating our twenty fifth year in Seel street we thought we would set a 'silver' theme to this years exhibition.
This exhibition celebrates the longest continuous period of operation that the Academy has had in its two hundred year history. It was reopened in December 1988 by sculptor Arthur Dooley with the help of local businessman Allan Johnstone and June Lornie, since then thousands of artists from Merseyside and beyond have exhibited their work.
It runs until December 18th. Open Tuesday to Saturday, 12 to 4pm.
Christmas Carol Concert
This will be on Wednesday 18th December with the carols as usual accompanied by Ellesmere Port Concert Brass
Tickets are £10 each, available from the gallery.

An exhibition of work by Chinese artist Jill Zhang. Jill uses digital photography and the blending of images to create what is the digital equivalent of a sculptor's maquette. Using this as a basis she then painstakingly builds up the image putting layer on layer of oil paint onto canvas to produce a final translucent image which crosses time space and emotion Click on her image above to learn more about her and see samples from the exhibition.
An exhibition of paintings by local artist Brian Beattie. Brian needs no introduction to regular vistors to the gallery through his mastery of impasto techniques, applying acrylic paint with a pallete knife, he gives all his works a style uniquely his.
