Kirkby Gallery is delighted to present Five, an exhibition showcasing five of the best painters currently living or working in the borough: Gary McGillivray, Gill Cowley, Leslie Briggs, Mike Kirby and Nick Daly.
The exhibition also coincides with the fifth anniversary of Kirkby Gallery in its new, contemporary home within The Kirkby Centre. Since 2013, we have presented 15 major exhibitions here and celebrated the work of over 388 artists.
In this exhibition, we explore the practice of each artist and show a rare insight into how they develop their ideas from sketches through to fully accomplished paintings. Within the gallery will be ‘The Artist’s Studio’ – as the name suggests, on numerous days each week, the exhibiting artists will take residency and work within the space, enabling the public to observe and engage with them.
There will be an additional display of the work of five young artists from Knowsley schools in the entrance stairwell and corridor.
Open Monday-Friday 9am-5pm (last admission 4.30pm), Saturday 10am-1pm (last admission 12.30pm)
