Liverpool Academy of Arts – People in Liverpool

Exhibition 3 July to 11 July 2008

“A sharp slice of city of Liverpool life and an extraordinary work of portraiture that stands up even if you neither know nor care about anyone in it.”

People in Liverpool is filled with the famous great and the good, and the not-so-famous but equally great and good in no order of importance whatsoever.

Playwright Willy Russell opposite Chief Constable Norman Bettinson; a grinning bobby on the beat; a smiling teenage brother and sister. And on it goes: Drummond Bone, David Fleming, Loyd Grossman, singer Connie Lush, actors Eithne Brown, Warren Donnelly (the scouse copper from Shameless who graces the cover), sacked docker Tony Nelson, and our favourite, The Mattas family, all lined up outside their wonderful shop in Bold Street.
