The Liverpool Collection
Friday 23 November – Saturday 12 January
dot-art Gallery is celebrating the festive season with exhibition The Liverpool Collection, which returns for the third in an annual series of local art. Opening on Friday 23rd November, this year’s exhibition will comprise 19 artists from across the Liverpool region; celebrating a city steeped in culture through a variety of distinctive artistic styles.
The Liverpool Collection showcases our city’s vibrant, cultural landscape with an eclectic range of art for a variety of tastes and budgets, from indulgent, original art pieces to thoughtful limited edition prints. A watercolour Goodison Park print? A hand-embroidered acrylic painting of Sefton Palm House? Discover dot-art’s Christmas collection, filled to the brim with unique Merseyside mementos and Liverpool iconography, all from our community of local creatives. Here’s just a few things we have in store…
Liverpool is well known for its thriving music scene and Amanda Oliphant’s beautiful mixed media collages depict one of Liverpool’s most famous exports, The Beatles. These simplistic yet intricate limited edition prints are available from only £75, a stand-out gift for the music lover you know.
Phill Gornall creates stunning pen and ink renderings of Liverpool’s architectural triumphs. His brisk and energetic drawings are a keen favourite among those who love a minimal aesthetic and with framed originals starting at only £160 they make the perfect, thought-filled gift.
Whether you frequented The Magnet for years or met your best friend in Cuthbert’s coffee shop, you’re bound to recognise one of Antonio Franco’s subjects. Better known as the photographer behind ‘Liverpool Shopfronts’, Antonio’s love for symmetry and balance is depicted in each of his charming shopfront portraits and from £35 you’ll never have been a better Secret Santa!
Finally, to celebrate the third year of The Liverpool Collection we are releasing a brand new bauble design to adorn your tree alongside the must-have collectables Sefton Park Palm House and Liver Building editions. In frosted white our latest Metropolitan Cathedral bauble will glow among any Christmas themed décor and will be available online and in the gallery.
Join us for the private view on Thursday 22nd November between 5pm and 7pm for some mulled wine, mince pies and Christmas carols from the Liverpool BID choir! ‘Tis the season!
This exhibition starts on Friday 23 November and runs to Saturday 12th January. Entry is free and all are welcome.
