dot-art, 14 Queen Avenue, Castle Street, Liverpool, 24 November – 13 January. Free entry
dot-art Gallery’s Christmas exhibition, The Liverpool Collection opens to the public on Friday 24th November. This is the second year the gallery will host a festive group show celebrating Liverpool’s famous vibrancy, from striking and renowned iconography to subtle Merseyside nostalgia. The exhibition will showcase over 20 local creatives whilst inviting Christmas shoppers in for a mince pie and a browse. So whether you have a football fan sibling (red or blue!) or an old friend who’s moved away from the city, our independent, local gallery is decked with unique gift inspiration for the person who has everything.
The Liverpool Collection features a diverse array of artists including Olga Snell and her surreal digital collages, which turn well known Liverpool sights into swirling, whimsical mandalas. At only £60, they’re perfect for the eclectic vintage lover you know.
For the extrovert who loves bold, statement colours, Chris Grace’s lino prints of Liverpool’s famous architecture would make a brilliant gift. Printed in limited editions, his pieces would make a stocking filler with a difference, starting at only £40.
Susan Finch creates ethereal mixed-media canvases, twisting well-known Liverpool scenes into magical and otherworldly paintings. Her original canvases would make a very special gift, but if they are out of your budget, she has produced a limited edition of prints ranging from only £95.
And finally, the baubles are back! After selling out last year, our bespoke, hand-designed, Liverpool themed baubles are back in stock. We have frosted white limited editions of both the Sefton Park Palm House and the Liver Building available; a must-have collectable and an essential accompaniment for any themed Christmas décor. dot-art baubles are available both in our gallery and online.
If you simply can’t decide, we also offer two types of gift voucher; one for artwork and one that can be redeemed for one of our popular evening and weekend classes, which include drawing, painting, jewellery making and photography.
The exhibition starts on Friday 24th November and runs to Saturday 13th January. Entry is free.
The dot-art Gallery can be found at 14 Queen Avenue, Castle Street, Liverpool, L2 4TX (just 5 minutes’ walk from Liverpool One). Opening times: Monday – Saturday, 10am-6pm
