I went to 2 viewings on Thursday evening, across town to the Cornerstone then a long walk down to Editions in Cook St.
Both very good but I don’t have much time to write about them as I’m going to watch the Brouhaha carnival then off to Manchester for the weekend of Futuresonic music and art. So I’ll just quote from the blurb…
Dot-art group exhibition at Cornerstone.The exhibition showcases a selection of work by artists represented by dot-art, and demonstrates their range, diversity and talent.
The dot-art artists range from the well established and respected such as Peter Corbett, who was the subject of a retrospective exhibition at last years Liverpool Biennial and Alex Corina, who was responsible for the “Mona Lennon”; to those who graduated from art school less than a month ago, including Katy Rees and Rachel Woods. The wide variety of age, experience and expertise of these artists can be seen in the exciting and stimulating contrasts of both media and subject found in the exhibition.
dot-art is a Liverpool based art agency and online gallery,
specialising in high quality original and limited edition contemporary
art. They promote, exhibit and sell the work of local artists through
external exhibitions and the dot-art website, www.dot-art.co.uk.
