Kirkby Gallery is delighted to announce our new exhibition – Julia Midgley: Drawing a Record, opening 15th April and running until 17th August 2024.

Julia Midgley is a Printmaker and Reportage artist. Over decades of practice, Julia’s drawings have recorded society at large, illustrating her observations on location. By acting as a fly on the wall, events are recorded as they take place in Julia’s sketchbooks, as she does not use a camera, preferring to draw live action directly onto paper.

The works in this exhibition focus on Julia’s projects in Knowsley and the Liverpool City Region. For example, for the 2002 Biennial she made drawings of life in and around Huyton Village and in 2021, Julia returned to Knowsley as part of the Art in the Park project, a collaborative, lockdown project between Knowsley’s Culture Service and Knowsley Safari and again in 2022, as part of the Knowsley Borough of Culture project, Kirkbyography. Julia has created work in Merseyside for well over 35 years and this exhibition is a celebration of her talent and her commissions.

Event Date: Monday 15th April 2024 - Saturday 17th August 2024
