A great shame and a loss to Liverpool, not only the gallery and interesting, challenging exhibitions but Ceri has been an influential part of the local scene for years working with the other galleries, the Biennial and local art schools.

I like the positive spin from Juan Cruz in this Daily Post report and he’s right. Ceri has shown that with hard work and good artists there is a commercial market even in Liverpool but obviously an even bigger market in London or any capital city. Good to read that she hopes to continue to have some presence in Liverpool.

Daily Post report – Liverpool’s Ceri Hand Gallery will move to London

Meanwhile I’m looking forward to the show she’s put together at CUC from 25 Nov to 16 Dec – Notes Towards a Supreme Fiction then the final show at her gallery – Henny Acloque: Lugar de Culto next January.
