ART ON THE WALLS: KATE ROBERTS
Daily, 8.30am – 5pm
Kate Roberts is a Liverpool-based artist who works as the Head of Art and Design at a local secondary school. Art has always been a big part of Kate’s life, training in Fine Art Sculpture at the University of Central Lancashire, she went on to do a PGCE at Liverpool John Moores University and in 2011 completed the Artist Teacher Master’s Degree. Her exhibition will be on display until Sunday 1 March.
Sharing her love for art, Kate has been teaching for nineteen years, and enjoys exploring new creative processes to inspire and engage her students. When it comes to her own artistic practice, she is inspired by her two favourite things: nature and animals, particularly horses.
Collections available are Horses and Woosh:
Horses Collection: The Horses collection encompasses three things that encourage mindfulness and celebrate the present; firstly, nature with its patterns, rhythms and the fleeting beauty of the changing seasons, secondly, horse riding – a sport that holds you in the present as you work in partnership with a powerful and beautiful animal, and finally the act of creating artwork.
Whoosh Collection: Whoosh is a children’s story book written by local author Barbara Bell, illustrated by Kate Roberts. One day while driving home from work along Princes Avenue, Barbara saw a little red umbrella being swept around in the wind. This glimpse on a windy day, led to the story of Whoosh! The little red umbrella gets carried around Liverpool, pursued by his owner Jo, ending up in the beautiful Calderstones Park.
Artwork can be purchased from The Reader shop (card payment only).
Art in the Mansion is a collaboration with dot-art, who curate a rolling programme of exhibitions of local artists’ work within the public areas of the Grade II listed Mansion House.
