Christmas Open 2013

Christmas Open As we were celebrating our twenty fifth year in Seel street we thought we would set a 'silver' theme to the 2013 Chrismtas exhibition.

This exhibition celebrated 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.

Jill Zhang Work 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.

An exhibition of recent paintings by Marc Jones, Marie McGowan and June Lornie.

We had the wood reliefs, paintings and collages of Marc Jones, the abstract paintings of Marie McGowan and June Lornies largely colourful and dramatic pieces.

The exhibition, a pastiche of works apparently so different in style and technique, highlighted the diverse ways in which an artist works to turn an initial concept into a finished piece of art.

The Scene Changes

Recent work by artist Grahame Ashcroft.

Grahame is a professional artist, based in New Brighton, whose paintings grace a number of private and municipal collections both in the UK & abroad.

'Joyful' is perhaps the word that encapsulates Grahame's paintings best. His works are brilliantly coloured, rather magical pieces, including landscapes which have a nostalgic, picture-book quality, like images of a world like ours, but not quite.
