I know what I want for Christmas! One of these big chocolate fountains, you can hire them from thebigchocolatefountaincompany.co.uk, complete with fruit, marshmallows, fudge etc. to dip in. Forget about the photos on the wall, this is the real artwork.
This was the launch of Ikonography at 31 Mathew Street, Liverpool which used to be the Mathew St Gallery selling John Lennon and other Beatles-related artworks. Ikonography are commercial photographers, they cover weddings and civil partnerships, portraits, special events etc. Mathew Street will be their studio and office as well as a gallery showing regular exhibitions by local photographers.
The current exhibition includes work by Alan McKernan, Lonn Landis, Sue Sumner, Laurence Pratt, Neil Richards and Colin Serjent.
Actor Dean Sullivan (pictured here with proprietors Kathy and Barry Cheung) cracked open 5 bottles of Champagne. One each for: The Gallery opening, The launch of the website, The first day of Civil Partnerships (same-sex marriages)in the UK, The Winter solstice and Kathy & Barry’s wedding anniversary. Hoorah!
So, it was a good evening, chocolate, champagne, belly-dancers (again!) – and the photographs are pretty good too.
