Review by Philip Key, Daily Post
WHILE the Liverpool Biennial has given us a cornucopia of art in Liverpool, it is pleasing to find that the region’s smaller commercial galleries continue on their own individual ways.
Typical is artroom, a fairly new gallery on the promenade at Parkgate, where a new group show featuring artists, both local and regional, has opened.
Some nine artists are featured in an exhibition which has no particular theme.
Among them is Alexandra du Gard, who paints quite large works featuring birds in trees, seen in silhouette and graphic-like in style.
Also African-inspired wash-and-inks by Heswall’s Michael Horgan, neat still life by Andrew Tolley, intriguing ‘Echo’ painting by Greg McDonough, action painting by Carys Bryn, wonderful swirly creations by Liverpool’s Julie Anderson and graceful Ancastor stone sculpture by Ian Bennion and large, restful beachscenes of Formby by Andrew Tolley and Steve Galloway.
