dot-art announces its largest-ever Christmas exhibition The Liverpool Collection, taking place across the Metquarter and dot-art Gallery this winter. The fourth annual showcase will feature over 100 spectacular artworks by local creatives, each celebrating Liverpool’s iconic landmarks, famous faces and rich music culture in a variety of artistic media.
Over 40 artists’ work will be for sale, from oil paintings to photography, embroidery to sculpture, giving discerning festive shoppers the perfect opportunity to buy the gift they won’t expect, with unique Christmas presents from as little as £25.
In the Metquarter from 22 November, pick up a truly special gift from a curated selection of Liverpool themed art. Award-winning portrait artist Jacob Gourley creates stunning, ethereal portraits of people on Liverpool’s public transport, highlighting the beauty in the ordinary. Jo Gough adds a vibrant flourish of hand-painted flowers to Liverpool’s most-loved landmarks, from the Albert Dock to the Radio City Tower. If her originals are just out of your budget, she has also produced a limited edition of fine-art prints from only £65.
In the dot-art Gallery from 28 November, Liverpool Art Fair People’s Choice winner James Chadderton will be exhibiting a new digital artwork, depicting a well-known Liverpool scene in his compelling dystopian style. Oil painter Kathy Dereli shows a different side of Liverpool, painting the city’s historic streets from beautiful, unseen angles – the perfect gift for someone in need of a little bit of home.
Finally, to celebrate the fourth year of The Liverpool Collection we are selling our popular Christmas baubles luxuriously wrapped and ready to post! Each gift box will include 3 must-have collectables; Sefton Park Palm House, Liver Building and Metropolitan cathedral editions. Pick up a box and post straight to that special person this Christmas!
Double the festivity and join us for two private views; one on Thursday 21st November, 5-7pm at Metquarter, and on Wednesday 27th November, 5-7pm for mulled wine, mince pies and Christmas carols from the Liverpool BID choir!
