Danny John at Almiro

ab1 c. Danny JohnSpeaking of Antony Gormley, Almiro gallery in Waterloo just up the road from Crosby beach now stocks ‘Another Place’ merchandise. Calendars, prints, postcards etc.
But I was there to have a look at the exhibition of Danny John’s paintings on show for the whole of January. The gallery has a good space in a former workshop at 45 Mersey View, it opened in October 2005, this was my first visit and I was made very welcome by the whole McCarthy family who own and run the place.
Danny John has his studio in 50 Parr St. and is currently working on various commissions as well as exhibiting here. These are mainly abstracts but with a couple of figurative pieces which I prefer to be honest as they have their own distinct style which I find appealing.
There are some works by other featured artists such as Roy McCarthy, Eric Orme, Jazamin Sinclair and Paul Butler and a good selection of prints. The gallery is open Thurs/Friday 10-19.00 and Sat/Sun 11-18.00.
