Here's Marketing Officer, Andrew Winder, to tell us about an interesting visitor to the Walker Art Gallery recently...
I joined artist David Hoyle
last week on a walk-around of the Walker in preparation for his event there in November. Curator of Fine Art at the Walker, Charlotte Keenan accompanied us along with Kenn Taylor from Communities, Visitor Host, Emma Devlin and Gary Everett, Director of Liverpool’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender arts festival, Homotopia.
David’s event at the Walker, on Sunday 7 November, will form part of this year’s Homotopia festival, which runs from 1 – 25 November. He was enthralled by the two Lowry paintings currently on display, proclaiming that the artist is as important as Picasso. Sadly, they won’t form part of David’s tour as they’ll temporarily be replaced with other artworks. Look out for more information on the event here or on Homotopia’s website coming soon.
