It’s an exhibition that has been part of the local arts scene for as long as most of us can remember and after one year online and one year absent, we’re thrilled to be bringing it back onto the walls of the gallery.
The Williamson Open aims to reflect part of the current active visual arts scene in Wirral. It’s open to artists and photographers who have connections with Wirral through birth, education, residency or occupation.
The exhibition will run in galleries 1 and 13 from Wednesday 30th March – Saturday 30th April (closed Good Friday 15th April).
A catalogue listing all works exhibited is available for £2 from the front desk.
Two two winners of this year’s Art Prizes are Ken Bryning for ‘Student Party’, and Dennis Spicer for ‘The Goldfinch And The Nest’.
The winner of the Photography Prize is Simon Gabriel for ‘Legs’
Congratulations to Kim Bland for winning the 2022 Kriterion Prize, as decided by public vote, for ‘Old Man’
