WILLARD WIGAN MBE EXHIBITION IS EXTENDED AT HARD DAYS NIGHT HOTEL GALLERY
Liverpool, 02/10/2008: The Hard Days Night Hotel Gallery, in association with Turner Fine Arts, is proud to announce that the first public exhibition of the work from celebrated micro-sculpturist, Willard Wigan MBE has been extended until 31st October 2008. This is due to exceptional demand from visitors keen to see the work during Wigan’s first public exhibition for five years.
The exhibition at the Hard Days Night Hotel features 23 pieces from the collection. The exhibition includes various works including the unique Yellow Submarine sculpture which has significant interest to Beatles fans. Willard Wigan MBE has kindly donated this piece through the Hard Days Night Hotel to The Marina Dalglish Appeal and it will be auctioned off to raise valuable finds for the charity.
The Willard Wigan tour has been met with unprecedented reviews around the country, with each venue having to extend the time this unbelievable collection of art has been at each venue. The artwork is so minute that it is barely visible to the naked eye. The work is housed in easy to view cases with microscope lenses trained on the work. Images are available at and www.willard-wigan.com but a full understanding of the intricacies of this work can only be achieved through a viewing ‘in the flesh’.
Hotel and Gallery proprietor, Jonathan Davies commented: “The exhibition has been very popular and we are delighted that we can extend it until the end of October. It is a privilege that we have been able to showcase the work of a man who has been described as a genius and incredible artist.”
