Bird Watching at the Bluecoat

cathy milesDamn! I missed the opening yesterday. Had a look today (have to peek through the gates) and its rather good, as one now expects from Cathy Miles who also currently has work on show in the Cornerstone gallery.

In a world of noise and chaos there is beauty……

The Bluecoat Display Centre Liverpool is delighted to announce the completion of an exciting new public art installation entitled ‘Bird Watching’ by the Liverpool based metalworker Cathy Miles with assistance from the 2nd. year design students at Hope University.

Commissioned by the Bluecoat Display Centre to enhance the hoardings visible from our windows out onto the former Bluecoat Garden, Cathy Miles has taken trips on the Liverpool Duck and the Beatles Tour armed with her sketchbook and camera, events which happen throughout the day trip influence a series of writings, a dialogue begins, the seagulls start to humanize.

Cathy trained at London Guildhall and London Metropolitan Universities in silversmithing and this year she completes a two year artist placement at Liverpool Hope University’s Art & Design Department.
