Five exhibition showcases work of Knowsley’s best artists

by Laura Johnston

Kirkby Gallery is delighted to have presented ‘Five’, a special exhibition showcasing the work of five of the best artists living or working in Knowsley – Gary McGillivray, Leslie Briggs, Gill Cowley, Mike Kirby and Nick Daly.

The exhibition explored the practice of each artist, with each one personally sharing an insight into how they develop their ideas from initial sketches to their finished work.  During ‘The Artist’s Studio’, the artists from the exhibition visited Kirkby Gallery for visitors to have the opportunity to observe them and talk to them about their work.

Visitors could see the great work of five young and budding artists from local schools outside the main exhibition. These children may grow up to be Knowsley’s next best artists and it would have all started here!

Five opened on 14 May 2018 and ran until 1 September 2018.
