Liverpool Print Fair 2020
Liverpool Print Fair is an affordable art fair gathering the very best artists and designers who print using traditional methods. The fair is a celebration of printmaking in a variety of forms including screen printing, linocut, etching, and woodcut.
Print Workshops: As well as plenty of beautiful affordable art, the Bluecoat will also be hosting a number of family friendly print activities and workshops for all ages.
One of the great things about Liverpool Print Fair is the diverse mix of artists, designers, illustrators and printmakers that the event showcases. There’s something to suit everyone’s budget and tastes and you’re bound to find a new favourite print among the stalls.
We will be running live printing demonstrations for all ages which are free for everyone to take part in. Come along and have a go at making your very own Christmas cards and prints!
Castle Park Arts Centre New Exhibitions
📅 28 June - 4 August 2019
Castle Park Arts Centre, Frodsham WA6 6SE

Family visions is a joint exhibition featuring the work of five artists from two generations of the same Welsh family. The artists, Gareth, Diana, Glyn, Simon & Jani use different media including sculpture, painting, drawing and photography to express ideas, emotions and observations.
The subject matter ranges from landscape & buildings to people & conceptual. The work they have been producing over the last few years is both powerful and thought provoking, highlighting the way in which people from the same family see their personal world differently.
In Gallery 3 we have Philip Westcott’s People and Places. Philip Westcott has painted cityscapes for over 30 years. He started by painting individuals but then moved on to paint a wider view of the scene. In these compositions he captures indiscriminate figures by painting them loosely so that they appear to merge into the scene and often highlights them with fleeting glimpses of colour, to give the impression of a fast-paced lifestyle. Concentrating on the busy shopping centres depicts the hustle and bustle of modern life.
His other interest is the Northwest Landscape. Here his paintings focus on the hidden view rather than large panoramas.
In our café area we have the winners of this year’s inter-school art competition, the three Church of England Primary schools of Norley, Crowton Christ Church and Kingsley St. John’s are coming together once again to showcase their pupils careful thought and artistic flair.
