The Waterfront Arts Project have announced their next art exhibition at their permanent gallery in Southport. The gallery has attracted over 40,000 visitors since it started and is home to a wonderfful diversity of artistic talent. If you are fed up with seaside art galleries where all you get is a staggering volume of varying degrees of talent of renditions of the local scenery in watercolour or oils then this will come as a welcome surprise. The talent of artists like John Zehentner and Joan Walmsley to mention but two of the great artists here easily rivals the talent in the most prestigious galleries in the main cities.

The new exhibition is entitled ‘The Painful Untruth’ and promises to be yet another challenging and thought-provoking collection of work. It starts on 11th September 2016 so if you are anywhere near southport 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).

Running from July 10th to 4th September is the new Waterfront Arts Project exhibition entitled ‘Beyond the Obvious’. If you are anywhere near southport you really should take a look. You’ll find it in a unit towards the back of the Ramada hotel.  There is a large walkway between the hotel and the Casino/ Genting Club.  Both are located on the promenade and if you are using a satnav then the postcode is PR9 0DZ. Their Facebook page is here.

If you are planning on being close to Southport in Merseyside, UK, say, something like within a thousand miles then make sure you pop in to see the latest show by the Southport art group The Waterfront Arts Project.  The original of this amazing piece of art by John Zehentner shown above is more impressive than any little jpeg image can do justice to as is a great deal of the other art on show from other great artists like Joan Walmsley with her large 3D works using fabrics or metalworker Rob Art with his incredible dragon that so impressed the group they had to give it a room on its own!  The WAP has been running for many years showcasing a diverse range of local talent that is on a par with much of what you’d find elsewhere in major galleries.  This is not a gallery of hobbiest watercolour doodles, this is cutting edge stuff in a variety of postmodern styles ranging from highly emotionally charged humanistic work to overt political statements regarding our modern world and the rife inequalities that still exist in our supposedly civilised environment.  Much of the work is challenging and often far deeper than the first deceptive appearances of something ordinary.  You might not like everything but I doubt you will find it boring.  And those you don’t like have probably touched a nerve and later on you might find yourself thinking back to those art pieces and learning something about yourself and the world you live in.  This is a non-profit group and nothing is sold at the exhibitions.  The exhibition relies on the support of local businesspeople and councillors and has grown in popularity purely by word of mouth.  Once you’ve been you’ll probably be enthusing to all your friends about this sparkling gem of an art exhibition in the north-west of England.  If you want to know more you can visit their Facebook page here.
