dot-art has opened a new gallery space at 14 Queen Avenue, in the heart of Liverpool’s commercial district. The space will be dot-art’s new permanent home and opened on Friday 12 February with an exhibition entitled “Dear Liverpool”, showcasing the work of 18 talented artists from the local area, following a well attended launch event the previous night.
dot-art supports visual artists and champions art as an integral part of everyday life; by offering access to affordable, locally sourced art for homes and businesses, and through the work of its social enterprise arm, which runs arts classes, a unique membership scheme for local artists and an innovative inter-school art programme. The new gallery space offers dot-art the chance to further raise its profile across the region and give more opportunities to the 100+ artists it works with.
The “Dear Liverpool” exhibition is designed to be a love letter to the cultural capital of the North, and perfectly summarises Liverpool’s energy and vibrancy. While there are some familiar scenes on show, several artists have chosen to represent the city in abstract or unexpected ways and it is abundantly clear from the diversity and quality of the work in the exhibition how much our city’s architecture, culture and people influence our creative community. All the artwork is for sale, with prices ranging from £25 -£2500.
The dot-art Gallery is open 10am-6pm, Monday to Saturday.
The Dear Liverpool exhibition will be open to the public from Friday 12th February to Saturday 23rd April.
