This is probably the final exhibition at the National Conservation Centre and has been cut short as National Museums Liverpool restructure to cope with the recently announced cuts in funding. There have been many excellent exhibitions here in recent years, mostly photographic and I think this is only the second exhibtion showing works selected from the Liverpool Region boroughs’ Open shows.
The Region covers 6 areas: Liverpool, Sefton, Wirral, Halton, Knowsley and St Helens, the arts officers have chosen 9 works from each making a total of 54 artworks.
It’s a good exhibition showing a wide variety of styles and media but giving a nice snapshot of the current art scene across the region.
