Transport problems messed up Ian's Viewing plans last week but they did get to the press viewing of the Aubrey Williams show at the Walker. Its a good show, really interesting painting techniques. I interviewed the curators - Reyahn King of NML and Leon Wainwright from MMU. And that interview will be published in a few days.
They also went to Mad About Art in Clayton Sq. - 'its a good group show of works relating to the city'. So they have yet to see the exhibitions at Ceri Hand, Egg, The Gallery Liverpool.
