NEW CONTEMPORARIES exhibition, opens 13 April

Corke Gallery, Aigburth Road, Aigburth Vale, Liverpool, opens 13 April – December 2018

This year the Corke Gallery is one of the sponsors of the John Moores Painting Prize, in its 60th year during the 2018 Liverpool Biennial, and the NEW CONTEMPORARIES exhibition opens on Friday 13 April 2018 and marks the start of the Corke Gallery’s new season of ten separate exhibitions which run through to December 2018.

In 2017 they were so impressed with the standard of painting at the Liverpool Hope University Fine Art Department the Corke Gallery agreed to offer an Exhibition Award to the student or students whose work stood out at 2017 Fine Art Graduate Degree show.

The standard of the students work at the Degree Show was very high and made the selection process particularly difficult.  After viewing all the paintings in the show they finally decided that four students stood out and this NEW CONTEMPORARIES exhibition features new artworks by all four artists as well as a few that were included in the Degree Show.  A particular highlight, and a first at the Corke Gallery,  will be Olivia Maddocks whole room painting which will feature a single painting covering all the walls and the floor of one of the gallery rooms.

The gallery opening hours have changed they are now open from 10am – 2pm from Thursday to Saturday and by appointment.  To make an appointment please call 07773 287827 or email nic@corke.net
