Events at the Williamson Art Gallery

The Williamson Art Gallery in Birkenhead (open Weds – Sun, 10am – 5pm) has several events and exhibitions open over the summer. More details are below:

The Dinner Party (until 3 Sep)

The Dinner Party celebrates the work of five Liverpool painters as instigators of a distinctive art practice from the early 1960s to the late 1970s: local, international and seldom metropolitan.

The exhibition at Birkenhead’s Williamson Art Gallery and Museum this summer focuses on the achievements and relationships of five friends depicted in Sam Walsh’s 1980 painting The Dinner Party: Walsh, Don McKinlay, Arthur Ballard, Adrian Henri and Maurice Cockrill.

pARTicipate – enriching lives through the visual arts (until 23 July)

This year the Wirral Festival of Firsts is exploring how creating art can help to improve the lives of those living with the myriad challenges (and opportunities!) of aging. This exhibition features some of the work produced as a result of this exploration, and will possibly form the start of something bigger.

Sunday Serenades happen every Sunday afternoon until 27 Aug at 2pm in Gallery Four with jazz, classical and experimental music. The concerts are free but as the concerts are run by the Williamson and Priory Friends who support the gallery, donations of £5 are encouraged where possible.

Evening life drawing classes with model and tutor take place on the first Thursday of the month at 6:30pm and cost £10. Bring a drawing board, paper and pencils or charcoal.

Adult classes start on the 21 Sept for drawing, painting and mixed media and cost £55 for ten weeks. Contact pamelasullivan@wirral.gov.uk or call 0151 666 3525 for more information.

Cafe and parking are available on site and the gallery is fully accessible with parking, ramp and fully equipped facilities.
