Kirkby Gallery 14 May – 1 September 2018

Kirkby Gallery is delighted to present ‘Five’, which is an exhibition showcasing five of the best painters that are currently living or working in the borough.

These artists are Gary McGillivray, Leslie Briggs, Gill Cowley, Mike Kirby and Nick Daly.

In this exhibition, we explore the practice of each artist and show a rare insight into how they develop their ideas from sketches through to fully accomplished paintings.

Complimenting this and taking a central position within the gallery, will be ‘The Artist’s Studio’ and as its name suggests, on certain days in the week, the exhibiting artists will take residency within the studio, enabling the public to observe and engage with them about their work.

Exhibiting alongside the main exhibition in the corridor and stairwell are five Knowsley school children who are budding artists, showing some of their artwork for the very first time.

If you haven’t been to Kirkby Gallery already, this is a great opportunity to visit a contemporary gallery which hosts exhibitions by local, regional, national and international artists. The gallery also has art courses for adults and children, including drawing, watercolour and sculpture.
