A really good show this, featuring recent work by 6 Merseyside artists, opening today at Liverpool Academy of Arts. There was good turn out for the Private View last night. Should be a popular show, I can see a lot of these works being bought for Christmas presents etc.
There’s also an exhibition of portraits and charcoal drawings by Phil Pyros, a well known figure in the Liverpool art world in the seventies.
