Photography exhibition shows life in Panorama

by Laura Johnston

Until 21 January 2017, you can visit Kirkby Gallery to see Panorama – a striking exhibition showcasing local people’s talent.

Panorama proudly displays wonderful photographs of people and places across Knowsley which have been taken by entrants in this year’s Spaces 2 photography competition.

To enter the competition, people who live, work, volunteers or studies in Knowsley took a compelling image of someone in Knowsley, or of someone that is important to them. The entries were brilliant and creative, and deserve their place on display in Kirkby Gallery so they can be appreciated.

There are hundreds of wonderful photographs that offer a little insight into the lives of Knowsley people and the places they go.

There are also photographs from Prescot Museum and Archive Resource for Knowsley (ARK) collections on display which allows the public to get an insight into the history of Knowsley.

As well as striking art to enjoy, children will be kept entertained with the activities available in the gallery. Children can choose from nine different activity sheets which inspire the young visitors to try out sketching, making collages and drawing portraits. The finished results can then be hung in the ‘mini gallery’ for the little ones to proudly show off their work.

There are light boxes for children to create their own masterpiece in a unique way and lots of materials such as glue and scissors for the youngest visitors to get creative.

If you’re interested in photography, you will certainly appreciate the fascinating display of old cameras.

Entry is free including all activities!

Kirkby Gallery which is at The Kirkby Centre, Norwich Way L32 8XY is open Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm (closed from 12.30pm to 1pm) and on Saturdays from 10am to 1pm.
