Tidal is the final exhibition focusing on the river Mersey by artist collective Markmakers, taking place in their home borough of Halton at award winning Brindley Arts Centre, Runcorn.
Markmakers are a group of contemporary visual artists using a diverse range of media. Tidal sees a new textile and collage installation by Val Jackson, copper sculptures by Tony Evans and Sue Sharples, a wall painting using mud from the Mersey by Cliff Richards and a host of other works in photography, print, wood, felt and ceramics. Each work has taken its inspiration from the river Mersey in some way, whether from its people and stories, its landscape, the movement of the water or found objects emerging from the river bed.
