Roy Munday Exhibition at Orrell Arts Centre

PAINTINGS by Merseyside artist Roy Munday are the focus of the next exhibition at Orrell Arts Centre’s Wishbone Gallery.

The Linacre Lane venue is hosting the exhibition until August 23, featuring Roy’s paintings, some of which can be found in some of Liverpool’s most prestigious venues.

A teacher of life drawing at King George V College in Southport, Roy also leads painting workshops for Sefton Council’s arts and cultural services at venues in Maghull and Hightown.

Brian Wake, Sefton Council’s arts and cultural services development manager, said: “Much of his work is of the familiar Liverpool landscape and, conscious of the fact that the city is currently undergoing its most radical transition since the 1960s, Roy Munday is keen to create and preserve images of a Liverpool that might very well become lost in the veritable labyrinth of new buildings as it prepares for its reign as European Capital of Culture in 2008.

“With titles such as Liverpool Docks Sunset and Sunrise over Liverpool or even Lifting the Cup, Roy’s work appeals as social narratives with particular appeal for Merseysiders with a strong sense of local history.
