A Carol Fidler exhibition on until the end of April

Carol Fidler exhibits her work in the Café, conservatory and the corridor of Blackburne House. (it has taken her fourteen years to complete this work).
The majority of her work is created with throwaway items. Carol has concerns regarding our rapidly filling landfill site and she recently had an exhibition at the Catalyst museum which carried her message “How much waste are we all guilty of? Protect Our Planet we only have one”
She also teaches primary school children how to reuse materials and have fun in art.


As part of this year's Writing On The Wall festival, the Spider Project's creative writing group are showcasing a selection of their best poetry, prose, novel extracts, opinion pieces and other written work.

Subtitled: 'Hidden Histories, Invisible Lives' the emphasis is on how these local writers highlight the often neglected aspects of Liverpool culture through their own experiences.

If this sounds worthy and dry, it won't be. Expect humour, anger, energy & passion.

The Spider's Web event is free and takes place this Thursday (20th April) at The Rodewald Suite, Philharmonic Hall, (Sugnall St entrance) from 5-7pm.

'Bluecoat Around The Corner'

Friday 31st March to Friday 5th May 2006

The Bluecoat Display Centre in association with the Cornerstone Gallery
presents an exhibition of six diverse artists that work in a range of
media to create a visually stunning exhibition titled 'Bluecoat Around
the Corner'.
Within Liverpool Hope University's Everton campus, The Cornerstone
Gallery is an independent space that strives to promote new and emerging
artists and create access to contemporary art within education and the
local community. It is the first time that the Display Centre has been
invited to curate and present an exhibition. The works are wall based
and made by Merseyside based artists whom they represent. The
substantial size of the exhibition space has given the featured artists
an opportunity to spread their wings in terms of the scale of their

The featured artists are:

Jenny Barker, her glass work takes on sculptural, ornamental and
architectural dimensions in the form of wall hangings. Much of her
inspiration comes from landscapes and nature, which is often
representative in the work's shape, texture and form.

Rebecca Gouldson works in a variety of metals to produce wall pieces
for domestic and architectural context. Her love of drawing and
printmaking is directly related to the marks made on the metal. The
artist creates distinct qualities of line and texture.

Rachael Howard designs colourful and imaginative embroidered narrative
wall hangings. The work shows her fascination with everyday life. Her
designs focus on the innocent pleasures of living.

Cathy Miles constructs three-dimensional wire wall works. She cleverly
combines iron-binding wire with found objects and materials to create
witty depictions of birds in conversion. Her characters come to life to
reveal their grumbles and gripes, bad habits, love interests and
attention seeking behaviour.

Andrew Peter's works are all unique, limited productions. He
specialises in the design of mirror wall pieces, constantly seeking to
improve the designs in terms of their aesthetics and construction. He
chooses to construct in multiples but no consecutive pieces are ever
exactly the same.

Kazuhito Takadoi is intrigued by the colours in nature, marvelling at
the constant changes throughout the year. He is interested in slow decay
when everything eventually returns to the earth. Viewing his work from
different angles and in different lights provides a new perspective.

The Exhibition is open from Friday 31st March to Friday 5th May 2006.
The Gallery is open Monday to Friday, 10am to 4pm (closed 13th to 18th
April due to the Easter Break).

25 March - 23 June 2006 - EXHIBITION:

DAN PERJOVSCHI 'The Room Drawing, 2005'





Members Room, Level 6, Tate Modern, Bankside, London SE1 9TG;

Tel. 0207887 8888
Admission Free.
10.00-18.00, Monday-Thursday open to the public; Friday, Saturday and
Sunday for Tate Members ONLY.

Should you want to become a Tate Member,
please visit www.tate.org.uk/members

Treating the walls of Tate Modern's Members' Room as a blank canvas, Dan Perjovschi creates a witty, provocative and occasionally cutting social commentary, using drawing to deal with socially relevant issues. His work follows the tradition of political cartoonists' drawings which link
humorous observations of everyday life with ironic commentary.
In 1999 Perjovschi represented Romania at the 48th Venice Biennial.

He covered the floor of the pavilion with drawings and political graffiti
about life in the post-Communist era and the role of Eastern European
art in the cultural exchange with the West. Sketched using black marker
pens, Perjovschi's cartoons literally vanished beneath the feet of
visitors - a clear allusion to the erosion of Eastern European identity
and 'old' art following the collapse of the Wall.

In the summer of 2004, Collective Gallery invited Perjovschi to be the
unofficial artist-in-residence to the Edinburgh Festival. Perjovschi
acted as a critical observer and sometime participant, mingling with
writers, performers and audiences, picking up on the cultural debates
and setting them within a broader global context. His playful chalk
drawings were seen on regularly updated display panels at three
locations within the city and in a freely distributed newspaper.
Perjovschi's drawings always respond to the social and political context
in which they are made and incorporate comments on personal, regional
and international issues. His research for 'The Room Drawing' included
interviewing Tate staff members, Tate Members and representatives from
Tate Modern's Council. The results are likely to raise a few eyebrows.
Dan Perjovschi was born in Sibiu, Romania in 1961.

He lives and works in Bucharest.
Supported by Tate Members.

News from Jazmin Sinclair:

Long Journey Home Group - Exhibition Opportunities for Artists

There is a massive exhibition coming up in St George's
, Liverpool from 3rd - 7th May, 2006
being organised by Peter
Worthington from the South Bohemia Art Gallery.

"This exhibition is part of the Liverpool 08 Open Squash Championship
in association with The South Bohemia Art Gallery, Liverpool Culture
Company and Liverpool City Council & will be a Grand Exhibition of Art,
Sport and Performance. The exhibition will promote the artwork of
Liverpool and London artists in one of the most beautiful buildings in
the country. Performances by graduates from Liverpool Institute of
Performing Arts with laser light show. Outside the hall includes
choirs, drummers, dancers, performers and artists painting the scenes."

South Bohemia Gallery are asking for lots groups of artists to show and
for the Long Journey Home Group to be one of them. I will be able to get more info to you when I receive it.

In the meantime for more details visit:

Or you can contact the South Bohemia Gallery at:
196 Smithdown Road, Wavertree, Liverpool L15 3JT,
Tel: 0151 7335120 Mob: 0779 1145190 / 07866 85488
Email: peterworthington1@yahoo.co.uk

The cost is £200 per group of artists & the whole event will have
massive media coverage including some on Sky Sports TV. This obviously
means that each artist who shows work will have to pay a fee so this
cost can be covered but between a group of us this shouldn't be too
high. I will work out this price when I have a better idea who is
interested in showing. I think that the space per artist will be
limited to one or two of pieces of work each again depending on who is
interested in showing.

If you are interested in showing work in this exhibition as part of the
Long Journey Home Group then please get back to me on this at this
email address asap with two small low resolution J-peg images of your
artwork / ideas. If lots of people are interested then this may have
to come down to a first come first serve selection process.
