The ‘Summertime’ exhibition at the Egg Cafe actually opened last Friday so I’m a bit late reviewing it but I wanted to go back and take some pictures.
The Eggspace exhibitions are now curated by Headspace – a new group of North West artists lead by Jo Derbyshire, Jo Gough, Karen Henley, Jazamin Sinclair and Carolyn Sinclair.
Good to see the space looking better than it has for a long time, new boards on the walls and freshhly painted. As you can guess from the title, the theme is Summertime, not all the pictures adhere to this but the overall effect is still bright, summery, seasidey.
There’s a lot of photography (not only here but everywhere in Liverpool lately) including Jazamin Sinclair’s photos of Barmouth (more interesting than it sounds). There’s a whole section devoted to works by children aged from 4 to 14 which is nice. In fact the first sale was of 2 small paintings by 4 yr old Joseph Brown. He claims his watercolours titled ‘Water’ and ‘Splash’ were inspired by Jackson Pollock. Not a bad start but he’ll need to come up with something more original than that.
There’s Alice Lenkiewicsz’s installations made from found objects – mostly found on the beach and Janette Ireland’s pebbles and a couple of Michelle Campbell’s faery pictures.
Other artists include Lis Edgar, Chris Gjertsen, James Holz, Lucia and Stazia Lenkiewicsz, Adam Nankervis, Alexandra, Daniel and Kaya Sinlair and Jacqueline Stevens.
