Art For Macmillan Cancer Support will be opening Cambridge Walks Gallery in Southport on Monday 18th May, ready for the summer season.
Working in collaboration with community interest company: Make It Workshop whose retro and vintage emporium has already kindled public interest in Cambridge Walks after years of desertion a group of Merseyside based artists intends to raise much needed funds to help provide care for people and communities effected by cancer.
Macmillan Chair of Arts, Anton Dolders said ”Cambridge Walks offers an ideal setting for art and craft showcasing because of the creativity
and elegance embodied in it’s design. The decorative and cultured nature of businesses currently located there add to it’s finesse, ensuring a stylish experience for visitors to the area. The arcade successfully combines modern décor and the traditionally ornamental forms and adornments associated with a Victorian coastal town.”
The gallery’s collection of art will include everything from watercolour landscapes to extreme abstract representation and feature work by
artists from all over the district including renowned Liverpool artists: James Cosgrove, Daniel John, Frank Moore, Dave Garnett, Sid Jarrett and photographers
Karen Brookman, Mike Parr and Gary Gray along with Sefton based artists: John West, Anne Wilson, Brian Beattie, Deb Campbell, Daniel Adler, Sylvia Alexander, Anton Dolders and Walter Fairclough. There is also a fabulous display of hand painted fabrics, ceramics and jewelry.
As well as exhibiting and selling their work, participating artists will also demonstrate their skills and there will be opportunities for
people of all ages to test their own creative abilities. Anyone is welcome to join in with drawing and painting and all art materials will be provided at the gallery. Entry is free but participation in events will require a donation to Macmillan. The first of these events will take place on Saturday 23rd May from 11am and will continue every following Saturday.
There will also be live poetry and music performances occurring in Cambridge Walks Gallery. Art For Macmillan has staged a number of fundraising shows
featuring some of the best local literary and musical talent and is grateful for their support. We value the involvement of artists of all creative media
ranging from dancers to storytellers and have worked with some of the best in the region.
