Kirkby Gallery is delighted to present FIVE, an exhibition showcasing the work of five unique and exciting fine art painters from across the Liverpool city region and Northwest of England.

The work will be on display from 22 January to 23 March 2024, featuring artists using different painting styles and techniques to explore their individual themes.

Alun Roberts is inspired by the effect of light on the subject and captures a unique mood in each of his paintings.

Tony O’Connell creates work exploring themes of grief or loss and combines modern and ancient images from art history, reimagining them anew.

Natalie Gilmore works with layers of acrylic to represent the shapes, colours and textures from focal areas within a larger landscape.

Paul Gatenby developed from urban sketching to painting forgotten corners of the city that are imbued with a sense of poetic tragedy.  He also paints people, portraying the real personalities of his sitters.

Sophie Elsden creates a visual description of her surroundings and an expression of herself. Utilising the flexibility of paint to make emotional self-portraits, capturing particular moments.

Roger Owen will be exhibiting a selection of his oil and watercolour paintings in the Entrance Gallery, as a compliment to the main exhibition.

Alongside our Private View on January 18th, to celebrate Knowsley being 50 in 2024 there will be two free performances in Kirkby Town Centre at 4pm and again at 6.45pm, as led by Spark! drummers and Walk the Plank, who return to Knowsley with a dazzling performance and stage effects.

Event Date: Monday 22nd January 2024 - Saturday 23rd March 2024
