Future John Moores exhibition contenders?

7 April 2006 by Sam

I don’t know if it’s something in the water, but there’s some serious artistic talent in evidence in these parts at the moment.

Last weekend saw the last drawing workshop in the Pre-Raphaelites Drawings exhibtion at the Lady Lever Art Gallery. Participants, helped by artist Julia Midgeley, spent the day sketching our very own Pre-Raphaelite model, Lisa. You can see some of their drawings in our online people’s gallery.


Tomorrow is the opening of Dare to Dream at the Maritime Museum, a display of paintings produced by past and present staff. The organisers, Liverpool Front House, aim to promote the creative talents of the city’s working community.

For sheer colourful exuberance though you can’t beat the cool art pics displayed on the Little Artists’ fridge in the Big Art website. These guys may be too young to enter the current John Moores competition, but who knows what the future may bring. Remember, you saw them here first!
