Patrick Henry, Director of the Open Eye Gallery, Liverpool talks to us about its history, its activities and its future in a brand new space.

Open Eye started in the  1970’s and was based down in the Whitechapel area of Liverpool, in the Grapes Hotel by Victors the barbers. Liverpool was on the dole and the Open Eye was there to reflect the times of the once great city.  Open Eye History


As the years have gone by the city has changed, and the now Open Eye GALLERY is still there reflecting the changes in the city.

In 96-97 the Open Eye moved from Bold Street, it;s home for many years to Wood Street – it had a new space and a new identity has emerged from that.
