The original idea of using postcard works came from when the group successfully exhibited in New York as part of a collaboration as SCI – the sister group of Soup Collective, then touring to Arena as part of the Liverpool Biennial Independents in 2014. The aim of the night is to raise funds for the exciting international exhibition programme where they will be exhibiting work in Athens, Greece in May this year.
New works are saleable on the day/night easy to take away with you they start from £10. The private view will be an exciting night of bidding and being able to get your hands on small original artworks for affordable prices. This opportunity is part of a growing enthusiasm amongst Liverpool based artists to strengthen networks between the North and South of England.
The artists are part of the Soup Collective, Tate Collective and invited artists from the London Tate. Last year they exhibited in Stockholm, Light Night (Tate Liverpool) Sheffield and London’s Crypt Gallery as well as a successful postcard exhibition at Arena Studios and Gallery Liverpool. This year a number of members have already exhibited at Unity Theatre as part of the Patterns In Poetry exhibition last month and have an extensive program of exhibitions and events coming up in the rest of 2016 including Light Night and the Liverpool Biennial.
The exhibition will include the work of two former Art In Liverpool’s ‘Artist of the Month’ visual creatives Wendy Williams and Colette Lilly of Duke Street Studios.
The artists that will be exhibiting will be Lilly Nelson, Wendy Williams, Keiron Finnetty, Catherine Harrison, Joanne McClellan, Sumuyya Khader, Georgia Mae Doughty, Jackie Kerr, Ruth Morrissey, Colette Lilly, Michael Borkowsky, Tifany and Lee Kendall, May Chong, Janet Wilkinson, Ruth Edwards, Alicia Talikowska, Elizabeth Wheeler, Lewis Jones, Shauna Worrell, Maria Christoforatou, Hilal Ozelci, Maria Jj Juchnowska, Pawel Jaskulski, Andrew Wyatt, Sophie Nelson, Jason Richardson, Sufea Mohamad Noor, John Hughes and guests.
