COMING UP: Wirral Visions, Rathbone Studio, 16 Mar 2013


‘Wirral Visions’ is the current exhibition at the up and coming Rathbone Studio, Birkenhead. On display is a kaleidoscope of paintings and photographs from local Wirral artists.

The exhibition includes work from John Wharton that shows everyday life, plus pieces from Linda Mary Evans, who is no stranger to exhibiting her paintings and has a piece included in the prestigious Royal Cambrian Academy Open exhibition.

 

The art display shows very familiar and much loved local scenes plus abstract impressions. Tony Kenwright, the renowned press photographer, has exchanged the camera for a canvas and acrylics. His very successful solo exhibition last year, also at the Rathbone Studio, was featured on Granada Reports.

‘Wirral Visions’ shows the vast untapped potential of local artists. Studio gallery owner Janet Holmes, whose ceramics feature permanently, says “The Rathbone Studio is committed to follow in the footsteps of the Della Robbia Pottery, which was on the site of the Rathbone Studio. Harold Rathbone who founded the Della Robbia Pottery felt it was vital to encourage local talented artists and that was the main ethos behind that firebrand. The Wirral is bursting with creativity and we need to shout it from the rooftops’.

The exhibition is now open Tuesday to Saturday 3.00pm – 6.00pm until Saturday March 16th
