Liverpool-based contemporary artists are marking the 150th anniversary of one of the UKʼs oldest art shops this summer.
From 9 July to 16 October 2016 eight artists will exhibit their work in One Fifty Gallery a pop-up gallery located in the window of R Jackson and Sons Ltd, Slater Street in Liverpool city centre.
One Fifty Gallery is the smallest venue of the Biennial Fringe and will run for the fourteen weeks of Liverpool Biennial 2016, the UKʼs largest contemporary art festival.
Founded in 1866, Jacksonʼs continues to trade in Slater Street close to the original premises founded by Robert P Jackson five generations earlier. Famous customers have included the painters Augustus John and Stuart Sutcliffe.
The eight visual artists for One Fifty Gallery who all live and work in Liverpool are as follows:
Gabrielle Caul: 9-20 July
Erika Rushton: 21-30 July
Patrick OʼRourke: 1-13 August
Lisa Langan: 15-27 August
Mike James: 29 August-10 September
Tony Bishop: 12-24 September
Josh Worrall: 26 September-7 October

The window display is visible from the street 24/7. Some work will be available for sale.
This event is co-ordinated and supported by artists within the Liverpool Artistsʼ Network.
