Caravan Gallery presents 'Wirral Pride of Place'

10th June 2013

Categories: News

From Wirral Globe

The public is invited to show its pride in Wirral by contributing to a special exhibition that is being created in New Brighton.

Community group Momentary Art Project will open the doors of its premises in Neptune's development at Marine Point for use by The Caravan Gallery, who will turn the space into an exhibition and visitor information centre for the Wirral Pride Of Place project, which runs from this Saturday, June 8–23.

Visitors will be able to add their own personal landmarks and observations to a People's Map of Wirral and contribute Wirral-themed words and pictures.

A creation area will be set up for people to make their own drawings, collages, postcards, souvenirs, etc.

Local groups, societies and individuals are encouraged to bring along their Wirral-related creations and items for possible inclusion in the exhibition.

These could include 2D and 3D artworks they have made themselves, poems, stories, photos, films, scrapbooks, old postcards, books and brochures, souvenirs, found objects and memorabilia.

Items may be scanned and returned or kept until the end of the exhibition.

The project will be housed in Unit 7, Marine Point and be open for people to make their contributions between 12-6pm daily.

The exhibition will not be completed until the final day and there will be a closing celebration where participants and visitors can admire the finished display.

Alternatively they can donate to The Caravan Gallery archive. Some of the material collected may eventually appear in a commemorative publication.

The gallery is a mobile visual arts project set up in 2000 by Jan Williams and Chris Teasdale to take art to people and places other galleries might not easily reach. It will be open daily outside the unit in Marine Point throughout the project.

Their extensive photographic archive, publications and postcards document the reality and surreality of 'the way we live today'.

The artists have travelled thousands of miles and exhibited in hundreds of locations from supermarket car parks and contemporary art festivals to designer Paul Smith’s Space in Tokyo.

Their exhibition Merseystyle: Photographs by The Caravan Gallery is currently on display at the new Museum of Liverpool and the caravan has been touring the area.
