Summer Evenings 2019 at Corke Gallery
21 June – 26 July 2019
Corke Gallery, Liverpool, UK
Corke Gallery’s new Summer Evenings exhibition, curated by Nic Corke, features a floor to ceiling ‘salon-hang’ in the Gallery’s five rooms, displaying a diverse range of large and small paintings by over 30 artists, until the end of July 2019.
Works featured in the show include artists for whom this is their first show at the Corke Gallery. Gareth Kemp who is also exhibiting in this year’s Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, the 2018 and 2019 Winners of the Hope University Fine Art Degree Exhibition Prize, selected exhibitors and winners of prizes in the John Moores Painting Prize in the UK and three winners of the 2018 JMPP China, Duan Xiaogang, Huo Xumin and Xueqing Zhong, plus two times winner of the JMPP Visitor’s Choice Prize Nicholas Middleton. The exhibition also features a large selection of works by writer and broadcaster Andrew Marr, fresh from exhibiting in Venice and his sell out show in Edinburgh, who the Corke Gallery has represented, as an artist, since 2017.
Given the number of artists and paintings in the show there is only one way to display them so visitors will be treated to an old-fashioned ‘salon hang’ of the sort that used to be de rigueur, in which each painting is placed not at eye level and in isolation but with paintings tightly crammed in uneven ranks up and down the walls.
To reflect the range of artists featured in the Summer Evenings exhibition the hung will be in a non-hierarchical, visually accessible and exciting format so that works by less well known and established artists can be discovered next to each other.
Artists included in Summer Evenings 2019 are: John Afflick, Abiana Bore, Brian Burgess, Stephanie Carr, Paul Collinson, George Drought, John Elcock, Louise Emily Stewart, Clare Flinn, Harry Garner, Paul Gent, Jason Jones, Mia Jones, Gareth Kemp, Andrew Marr, Clement McAleer (RUA, RHA), Eleanor McCusker, Paul Mellor, Nicholas Middleton, Ruth Morrissey, Zahara Parwez, Peter Philip, Jon Pontain, Louise Emily Stewart, Mel Sullivan, Aurel Tar, John Vesty, Jules Ward, Duan Xiaogang, Huo Xumin and Zhong Xueqing.
Also new for this exhibition, our summer opening hours will be every Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening from 6.30pm – 8.30pm until Friday 26 July 2019.
The show opens on Friday 21 June from 6.30pm. Regular and new visitors to the gallery are welcome to come and enjoy the work and a complimentary drink.
