The Borough of Wallasey, however, did take it up and from 1962 a Spring Exhibition was held each year at Earlston Library. Following the creation of Wirral Borough Council the exhibition became open to all in Wirral but continued to be shown in Wallasey until 1983 when the first Wirral Spring Exhibition was held at the Williamson.
In 1989 the exhibition was opened to photographers, with the support of Birkenhead Photographic Association who continued that support for 25 years.
The exhibition has gone from strength to strength over those years and it has been a consistent factor that prize winners are purchased for the gallery collections. In this way the Williamson has acquired some fantastic work to maintain its representation of local artists that stretches back over 200 years. Long may it continue. Many congratulations to the winners – Mark Moynihan for his portrait painting and Gill Wyche for her phototograph.
