We are delighted to announce the next group exhibition at dot-art, Queen Avenue, Castle Street. Featuring work by six local artists: four painters and two photographers, Green Mersey is a collection of work celebrating the green spaces on our doorstep in Liverpool's Year of the Environment 2009.
After the success of our previous “Liverpool Encore” show, this exhibition continues the local focus, but look at a side of the city and it's surrounding area that is often overlooked. Liverpool has: 10 City Parks, 14 District Parks, 46 Neighbourhood Parks, 45 Playgrounds and 4 Local Nature Reserves. We are incredibly lucky to have so many wonderful parks, gardens and other fantastic outdoor spaces available to us, but it is easy to take them for granted.
Green Space, a registered charity which works to improve parks and green spaces, tells us that among the many benefits that parks and gardens bring to the community, their impact on the environment is also significant:
“[Parks]... beautify our urban landscapes, and help to secure a more sustainable environment by counteracting pollution, reducing water run off and flood problems, and by providing precious habitats that support delicate ecosystems.”
Lucy Byrne of dot-art said:
“I hope this exhibition helps to open people's eyes to the natural beauty all around them and remind us all to enjoy and appreciate our own “green spaces”. As we move into Spring and Liverpool's Year of the Environment 2009 gains momentum, this is a great way to bring it's themes into focus on an individual level.”
Artists involved: Susan Aigelsreiter, Andrew Collin, Martin Jones, Joe Thompson, Val and Doug Robinson and Stephanie de Leng.
All work is for sale.
The exhibition is open to the public at dot-art, 16 Queen Avenue, Castle Street, 12-6pm Monday – Friday and by appointment, from Tuesday 5th May to Friday 5th June. Please see www.dot-art.com or call 0845 0176660 for more details.
