“Alex Simpson - exhibition”
@Ullet Grange, Liverpool
This exhibition presents a selection of works by artist Alex Simpson, based in Stoke-on-Trent, who has been part of the St. Ives artists’ community in the 70s. Born in Wigan, Alex has been working and living in Stoke-on-Trent for quite a while, dedicating his life to art, particularly to sculpture making, mixed media, woodcut prints and painting. With a great admiration for Brancusi’s art, Alex Simpson ha created a body of work that shocks through inspiration, beauty and quantity. Recently visiting his residence to meet with both artist and his art, I have found an almost monastic atmosphere, through its creative spirit that habits it, powerful energy that shaped ‘chef d-oeuvre’ profiles in sandstone, marble, wood and steel. This artist’s house and garden so full of artwork almost eliminated any comfort and the idea of a contemporary home; it has become entirely a huge studio and gallery space. It worth a visit at least. With constant exhibitions in London, Alex recently has become part of the Liverpool group exhibition and competition “People and Love” (same venue), and has won the public vote award.
Part of the exhibition are also 15 mixed media wooden boxes, mostly admired through their storry- telling, nostalgia or humor qualities. Some of these works are particularly created for children, to inspire, educate and bring joy. Following the instructions of the artist, these works have been hanged at young children's eye level.
People easily fall inlove with the work and the venue. (N Bartos)

Terry Duffy - "STANDING STONES"
@Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool
Standing Stones will features a very new and fascinating diptych Somewhere between life and death we make decisions 2008. This diptych further demonstrates Duffy's fascination in experimenting in oils on sheer 'hot pressed board' which he rips away creating dynamic shapes that suggest the human form whilst retaining ambiguity.
Standing Stones will be the first of a series of exhibitions
by Terry Duffy to be held at various venues in Liverpool
during its year as European Capital of Culture.

British Glass Biennale - Call for Entries
Calling all artists
This year the UK's premiere selling exhibition of contemporary glass has £14,000 in prize money to be won alongside its growing international status as the leading showcase for British based makers.
The British Glass Biennale is delighted to be working in association with the Worshipful Company of Glass Sellers to offer three prizes, with a student section incorporated for the first time. The British Glass Biennale Award is increased to £8000 for the 'best in show'; the Glass Sellers Award is worth £5000 and the Glass Sellers Student Award of £1000.
An expert panel will be judging the submissions; comprising:
Will Farmer Director, Fieldings Auctioneers
The names of the selected exhibitors will be published at the end of April 2008 with the prize winners announced at the Awards Ceremony on 21 August at the Ruskin Glass Centre.
In 2006 101 artists were selected to exhibit, with Max Jacquard winning the British Glass Biennale Award. This massive representation of established artists and emerging new talent not only offers a clear illustration of the strength of the current British glass scene, but also reflects an extraordinarily wide range of styles and methods of glass-making.
The Biennale is open to artists, designers and craftspeople, working in all areas of contemporary glass practice or using glass as a key design element. The exhibition has developed a reputation for displaying work that is rich and diverse in size, discipline and form; from intricate glass beads through to giant architectural kiln-formed pieces. Jurors will be looking for technical excellence and artistic quality.
The deadline for submissions is 5pm Friday 28 March 2008.
The exhibition starts on 22 August and is open 10am to 5pm daily until 28 September. Entry is free.
The Biennale is a highlight of the International Festival of Glass, a four-day public festival celebrating the rich and dynamic world of glass, taking place August 22 to 25 at locations across the Stourbridge Glass Quarter. www.ifg.org.uk

Late at Tate Liverpool - Abstraction to Distraction.
On the last Thursday of every month Tate Liverpool opens late for special events, music, food, drink and the best modern and contemporary art. This month’s Late at Tate, Thursday 27 March (18.00 – 21.00), is themed around Tate Liverpool’s current collection display DLA Piper Series: The Twentieth Century - How it looked & how it felt. Hear one of the artists from the Tate Liverpool collection display in conversation, be surprised by musicians in the galleries responding to abstract art and be distracted by a special one-off group performance relating to Rodin’s The Kiss. Stay to hear The Neil Campbell Collective perform a set inspired by the collection display complete with electric cello, processed classical guitar and wordless vocals.
Michael Craig-Martin is a conceptual artist particularly noted for his influence on the generation of YBA artists who emerged in the 1990s – many of whom he taught at Goldsmiths University. For this Late at Tate, Craig-Martin discusses his career to date with Achim Borchardt-Hume, Curator at Tate Modern, focussing on his work currently on display at Tate Liverpool - 4 Identical Boxes with Lids Reversed, while commenting on work by other artists in the display including that of Damien Hirst (18.00 – 19.30, £7, £5.50 concessions, £4 members). To book your ticket call Tate Liverpool on 0151 702 7400.
Elsewhere in the building, visual artist Claire Blundell Jones choreographs Kissing throughout the building. Kissing is a group performance piece that investigates whether a social sculpture of kissing looks as aesthetically beautiful as the same act portrayed in an artwork such as Rodin's The Kiss or whether it is just as repulsive as some people perceive kissing in public to be. Exploring the boundaries of personal space, alienation, restraint and the issues of public affection, couples and singles will be coming together from all over the country to unite in a Kissing performance that will transform Tate Liverpool’s gallery and non-gallery spaces for those who encounter it.
Members of CoMA North West will present Abstraction/Composition, music inspired by and related to works in Tate Liverpool’s current collection display – DLA Piper Series: The Twentieth Century - How it looked & how it felt. Composed by members of CoMA North West, the music will be performed by Richard Harding on guitar and Phil Hargreaves on soprano saxophone. Pieces include Concentric by L C Dunbar (based on Richard Long’s Small White Pebble Circles), Spatial Concept by Phil Hargreaves (based on Lucio Fontana’s Spatial Concept) and Number 23 by Phil Hargreaves (based on Number 23 by Jackson Pollock). CoMA was set up in 1993 to encourage and provide opportunities for amateur musicians of all abilities to take part in contemporary music making. As part of this commitment, CoMA commissions works from leading UK and international composers, works which are artistically challenging yet suited to the technical abilities of amateur ensembles.
Mellowtone DJs will warm up the audience with an array of tunes reflecting abstraction in the Tate Collection and will be followed by The Neil Campbell Collective who complete the night with a set inspired by the collection display featuring an electric cello, processed classical guitar and wordless vocals.
18.00 – 19.30
