The Drifter’s Escape; an exhibition of paintings by Barry Charlton/Gareth Kemp/James Quin/Nick Sykes/Chiz Turnross.

The Drifter’s Escape is an exhibition of new paintings by five Liverpool artists. The exhibition is part of Liverpool Art Month and will include an exciting event called John Wesley Harding Revisited.   All five artists show paintings that pertain to the theme of The drifter’s Escape, either in very direct terms or very loosely; from Charlton’s historical portraits of Outlaws, Kemp’s paintings of constructed American landscapes showing scenes of death and tragedy, Nick Sykes’ quasi abstract landscapes/portraits steeped in myth and the outcasts, cowboys and drifters in the works by Quin and Turnross.

Curated by: Gareth Kemp

The exhibition takes place in the gallery within The Bridewell Studios and Gallery, housed in a former police station.
