Brian Savory is usually more interested in old Victorian buildings, or in fact any buildings really apart from “modern monstrosities”, when it comes to subject matter for art but every now and then he dives off into fantasy as with this wonderful take on Tenniel’s rendition of the Mad Hatter, who I’m sure needs no introduction now taht pretty much every generation knows of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ and ‘Alice Through the Looking Glass’ since the advent of the two blockbuster films starring Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter.

This fabulous new paintimng by John Zehentner is for for the brand new Waterfront Arts Project show opening March 2017

If you are anywhere near Southport you just really have to check this out!  The Waterfront Arts Project is an unbelievable collection of local talent.  For those who are fed up with seaside galleries where all that is on display are watercolour paintings of the local scenery this will come as a welcome surprise.  This is art of the calibre of the TATE or Walker and if you love art you won’t want to miss this.  And they’re a generous lot too.  You’ll most likely be treated to free nibbles and drinks if you come to the opening (you might want to make a donation but they seem so embarrassed to ask for anything that you’ll probably have to hunt around to find the donations box on the floor somewhere).  Apart from the amazing realistic surrealism of John Zehentner you can expect some wonderfully dark art from the superb talents of Joan Walmsley, colourful abstract works and thought-provoking political art and satire from other members of the group.  There may be a theme but the art will be vast and varied.  If you are anywhere near Southport on March 5th why not pop down at 2pm and join in the fun. You’ll find the gallery on the Piazza promenade between the Ramada hotel and the Genting Club casino (PR9 0DZ for the satnav and you can park on Ocean Plaza just over the bridge).  If you can’t make it for 5th March it’ll be running until 7th May.

If you want to know more about the Southport Arts Project or you are a local artist who would like to join them you can visit their Facebook page here.
