Gallery4allarts - Newsletter 2007


March - April - May 2007


27th April to 3rd June

You are invited to an exciting new exhibition at the Kitchen Gallery:

“You Are Here”

Private View 29th April 1.30-4pm.

Confirm your free entry to Norton Priory's Walled Garden by RSVPing to the
return address or phoning us on 0772 987 3001/ 01928 577487

You Are Here explores the notion of location in many contexts; spatial,
philosophical, economical, historical.

With artists including Nicola Dale, David Lunt, Julie Jones, Jane Fairhurst,
Susan Toler, Emily Hudson, Stanislaw Krakiewicz and Ann Goddard.

The positions of boarders and edges have always fascinated artists. Each of the invited artists showing in this exhibition at the Kitchen Gallery considers these shifting parameters in different ways; by use of objects or paint each artist explores a distinct site to create unique and engaging dialogues on the theme.

Whether the metaphor is mutated toys falling through space (Jane Fairhurst) to explore the distance which our consumer desirables travel to reach us, or the gap between solid and gaseous states (Susan Toler), You Are Here will connect the viewer with a special sense of the artists' perception of place.

Exhibition continues from 27th April to 3rd June.

Opening times Fri-Sun & Bank Holiday Mondays 1.30-4.30 and by appointment.

Entry fee to Gardens Adults £4.95, Children/concs £3.25/ under 5s free but
Gallery is free.

The Kitchen Gallery, Norton Priory Museum & Gardens, Runcorn, Cheshire, WA7 1SX



Tel: 01928 577 487/0772 987 3001

Richard Ashworth – “No Frills”

Invited to exhibit by Tony Dash from the Sefton Arts Development Leisure Services, Richard Ashworth shows paintings, drawings, assemblages made from non-traditional and re-cycled materials at the Wishbone gallery, Orrell Arts Centre in Bootle. The exhibition is open until the 4th of May 2006 and it worth a visit for sure.

A surprising collection of works made of unconventional and recycled materials such as plastic bags, paraffin wax, salvaged wood, matches, dried dates, hair.
I mentioned to Richard, while observing and analysing his work, the “found object” definition and he replied immediately about materials and objects that “…they find me”; “I’m just an opportunist..” in terms of using them. He has an eye for detail, texture and organic structure. Although, he is strongly using figurative elements as an almost daily exercise he tries to “escape” the figurative and enjoys experimenting and continues to express abstract or symbolic shapes of the soul. Some of his works have the predominant centred motif of a ‘circle’, ‘hole’, which to me suggests a way to openness, to release or communicate with the outside space, but also suggests further the ‘stored’ unknown, immaterial or spiritual ‘depth’ package or space. Richard is pointing out that this has to do with his previous figurative work; it developed from there, as a symbol “to do with the soul”. “A face is a symbol of the soul”, “a mirror of the soul”- he says.
Richard Ashworth has been involved in many exhibitions around Liverpool, including the Kitchen Open competition at Kitchen gallery and most recently, in the Cornerstone Gallery curated by Loop - Arthur Roberts and in two successful shows in 2006, as part of the Liverpool Independents Biennial curated by Nicole Bartos.(text by Nicole Bartos) Click here to read more about Richard and his work.

‘Why this title?’ you might ask. In short, we have chosen this name because we believe that the concept of the Festival – Past Imperfect, Future Continuous – plays on the strengths and weaknesses of modern Romania. One could say that that single line is a synopsis of the country’s history. We all know what our imperfect past was – communist dictatorship. After 1989, Romania entered years of transition, a transition that hasn’t ended and still has no clear end in sight. Only the entry into the EU has managed to bring a sense of timing to this problem. This is our ‘future continuous’.

The film directors in this festival try to make various pieces of the puzzle fall into place. Our festival aims to present an image of Romania which is unknown in the UK.

At the core of this year’s programme are a number of daring, irreverent, often hilarious takes on Romania’s past imperfect. Many of the film-makers included in the programme invite a meditation on the uses of imagery in the construction of an idea of history and historical consciousness. Some of them touch on the production of historical memory, and on the collisions and collusions among individual and collective memories.

Past Imperfect, Future Continuous is an invitation to see some of the best Romanian films of recent years.

Paddy Gould's studio exhibition: 'TUBER VOLCANO'

@Studios located below The Royal Standard, 2 Grey Street, off Windsor St, Liverpool L8 1XN.

OPEN Friday 6th April - Sunday 29th April
Thursday to Sunday 12.00 to 6.00pm

PRIVATE VIEW Friday 13th April from 7.00pm

The Gallery is a temporary space located in the studios beneath The Royal Standard, accessed through the old beer hatch (visitors enter at their own risk). Please call at The Royal Standard for entry.
The opening will be at 7pm on Friday the 13th April in the basement below The Royal Standard, followed by drinks and music in the bar in the early evening.

"It's a refreshingly fun show and will be well worth a visit, ..."(Eleanor Hawkridge)

Paddy Gould

"It is believed that the Hawaiian Islands-Emperor Seamount chain occured as the result of magma from a single well, bursting through weak points in the Earth's crust as it moved laboriously overhead. The volcanoes themselves being no more than holes breached through rock and the islands the violent and sporadic build up of lava.

The centrepiece of the Tuber Volcano exhibition is a beautiful but innocuous fibre-optic flower display. Initially conceived by the artist as the eye of a volcano monster, it is a gentle, if crass, symbol of funnelled power. Thinking of the blossoming Volcano and the Tuber as simple allusions was the beginning of these sculptures. Made of unprocessed and often discarded materials and strung together by a loose logic these scanty and hopeful sculptures are in various states of becoming.

The flower display itself has already passed through the exhibitions 'Objects In Waiting' and 'GIFT' (Daniel Simpkins and Penny Whitehead) as an artifact. These exhibitions' objects used to highlight hidden aspects of artists' practice and the nature of exchange. The fibre-optics now sit surrounded by the art they made possible. The eye of an opening volcano." (Paddy Gould)

Note regarding art workshops:
" You do not have to be an artist to experience life drawing, sketching, etc. Eye is taught observation, investigation and turns this into ways of meditation and relaxation, which is why art is so benefic, terapheutic and practised by so many.
Skills, personal expression and techniques develop the more you practise this exercise, and you find yourself that even if not a born artist you become one, in spirit, mind and body.
Try it out; see what happens."
Nicole Bartos (Artist and Curator)


21 April - 13th May

@Almiro Gallery, Liverpool

Victoria Hepworth is a local Liverpool artist who after graduating from
Staffordshire University, is now stepping out into the world of art.

Her work consists of abstract paintings were she has explored the use of acrylic
paint combined with watercolours, creating textures that form the main structure
in her paintings.

The technique is primarily what Victoria has a keen interest in, and how the
manipulation of the paint creates textures and colours that take the form of
landscapes, seascapes and waterscapes.

Victoria's paintings have a simplistic approach which penetrates into the inner
naivety taking the principles of traditional art and allowing the imagination to
create the viewers own reflection of representing and balancing their own notion
of reality.

The Successful ONLINE Exhibition of International Digital Art is Calling for Entries for May 2007 Exhibition
To be launched May 10th 2007
Call for Submissions (Deadline April 30th, 2007)
digitalshow.co.uk is an International Digital Art website created by artinliverpool.com. The intention is to show online-only exhibitions of high quality digital art. The first exhibition was held as part of the Independent Biennial Liverpool in 2006 with great success (see the Gallery pages) and this year for our 2nd show we hope to tie-up with Futuresonic 2007 Urban Festival of Electronic Arts and Music in Manchester, UK. (to be confirmed) Entry is open to all worldwide
Digital Art for the purposes of this exhibition is defined as artwork that has been entirely or at least substantially created using computer software. e.g. Photoshop, Illustrator, Painter, Flash, 3ds Max, Maya, Bryce etc.

The Theme is ‘Psychedelia’.
In 2007 the centrepiece of Futuresonic Live will be Futurevisual. This will be a homage to the 40th anniversary of seminal multimedia events in 1967 which, like Futuresonic, came not from film but a collision of music and art worlds. At events such as The 14 Hour Technicolor Dream and Games For May, and the UFO club, London's psychedelic underground exploded into the daylight. These were at the beginning of a year which saw a coming together of the worlds of music and visual art.
See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychedelic_art for more information and examples.
This is not a competition and there is no money involved but there will be selection as the show is limited to 100 images.

An exhibition at The Cornerstone Gallery, Liverpool guest curated by Arthur Roberts from Loop Gallery.


Private View - Thursday 22nd February, 6-8pm
Exhibition open - Friday 23rd February to Friday 23rd March 2007

Loop is celebrating Liverpool’s 800th birthday with a survey of abstract practitioners working within and around the city in 2007. OVERVIEW 07 demonstrates the diverse and colourful energy that is generated by many individuals working within the inexhaustible realms of abstraction.

Loop, which is the city's foremost independent promoter of abstract art on Merseyside is bringing this collection together to spotlight the celebration of today’s living homegrown artists.

This pioneering exhibition consists of thirty abstract artists who work in and around the City of Liverpool and have contributed to a new vibrant resurgence of visual arts.

The artists represent a new Avant-Garde which is filled with dynamic colourful energy whose diverse approaches make an inspiring landmark upon Liverpool’s cultural renaissance. The works on show range from colourful painted compositions, print, photography, constructions and sculpture all encapsulating a driving force of intrigue and contemplation.

This show represents the heart of the creative community of Liverpool, these are the artists who highlighted the creative bedrock which Capital of Culture was built upon. When the all flashing and dancing lights are slightly dimmed these are the practitioners who will constantly add colour to Liverpool’s cultural landscape.

Loop organizer Arthur Roberts says,
“ Its extraordinary to witness such a vibrant and varied language that abstract art is, to see thirty diverse artworks sparkling with energy and life is a privilege to behold”. Arthur continues, “working in partnership with Hope University has be an absolute pleasure. It has taken a lot of patience and hard work, but the combination of exceptional artists and an impressive venue at the Cornerstone has made this whole experience a joy”.

Artists included:

Richard Ashworth, Craig Atkinson, Nicole Bartos, Colin Beckett, Derek Boak,
Edward Bruce, Michelle Burrows, Terry Duffy, Peter Collins, Peter Corbett,
Derek Culley, Fanchon Frohlich, Barbara Jones, Jason Jones, Julie Jones,
Steve Hitchin, Vincent Lavell, Sue Milburn, Geoff Molyneux, Callum Moncrieff,

A document that historians of tomorrow will undoubtedly study with astonishment. (Christian Caujolle)
Open Eye Gallery proudly presents the first solo exhibition in the UK of Lars Tunbjörk, a major figure in contemporary European photography.Working mostly in his native Sweden,Tunbjörk presents us with a series of reflections on modern life that are by turns poetic, wryly humorous and devastatingly incisive.
Tunbjörk photographs the spaces, such as the office and home, in which we choose or are compelled to spend most of our time. He picks up on the small things we habitually overlook: an office carpet, a flower bed, a birthday cake bathed in fluorescent light. He questions them and gently points up their absurdity. This exhibition features three recent bodies of work - Office, Dom Alla and Madrid 2004 - all of which explore the changes brought about to modern urban life by consumerism and globalization.
Artist Talk: Lars Tunbjörk
Friday 9 February, 12.30pm
Lars Tunbjörk will be in the gallery to introduce his exhibition and talk about his unique approach to colour documentary photography, with opportunities for questions and discussion.
After the event Lars Tunbjörk will be signing copies of his book Office, which will be available on the day for £37.00 (usual price £42.00).

"Portraits of Great Composers and Musicians" by Wong Li Xian

Wong Li Xian was born in Beijing, China in 1959 and works as a construction engineer/building designer. He devotes his leisure time and passion to drawing portraits of great classical music composers and musicians to satisfy his artistic expression.

Wong has always been very fond of classical music and attends various classical music concerts, holding a pencil in his hand as he listens to the music to capture the image of the musicians. He emphasises that drawing out the musician's spirit is more important than creating photo-realistic images. Wong believes that pens have power to connect with music and that his works, therefore, have a musical resonance.

Portraits include some of the great classical composers such as Bach, Mozart, Brahms, Puccini and Wagner as well as contemporary musicians.

This is Wong Li Xian's first UK exhibition and is curated by Liverpool-based artist
Xia Lu, featuring 18 portraits created entirely with pens.
The exhibition runs through to 27th March 2007

All works are available to purchase.
