Art in Liverpool FM

art in liverpool fm logo webIt's my own personal history project stretching back to 2007 - with hundreds of recorded interviews, podcasts and plays. This section of the site is pretty old so don't expect it to work all the time and ignore it asking for Real Player to be loaded. 

So Listener beware!!!

Final pod of the year? Yes
Coffee Monkey

Coffee Monkey

We called into Mankey Monkey HQ (Hanover St) last week and its looking amazing. So many strange looking monkeys, still many to be completed and only a few days before they’ll be sent out to their sponsors. If you want to help over the weekend I’m sure the Mankey Monkey Ambassadors will be delighted, they’re there every day from noon until the evening. Its a really fun project responding to the Go Penguins and raising money for the Alder Hey Imagine Appeal. They are receiving a lot of attention not just from sponsors and the media but from everyone who passes the HQ building, they all stop to look and laugh.



The postcard auction at Cornerstone was very successful raising over £2000 for the Artists Benevolent fund. We got 3 bargains and our own works sold ok. There was a surprise late addition from Alexei Sayle. The top price was £180 for a painitng on postcard by Martin Greenland. Details

David Boal at Gostins - I like his work, mainly abstracts inspired by landscapes  e.g. Nepal or buildings such as those in Duke St. Retired art teacher - first solo show.

We helped with the judging of the Best Artist prize in the Gallery4AllArts in Lark Lane old Police Station. Its a nice show of around 100 miniature paintings.

STARTS: A Sense of Place

Heralding in the New Year we have an exhibition of etchings, linocuts and screen prints by six artists living locally. They are
Ann Beare, Gill Curry, Mike Hatjoullis, Grace Horne, Eileen Summers and Lisa Who.  Over the past year this group has travelled a long way together to explore a very wide range of approaches to print, also journeying as individuals across the world and back.
