Impressions and expressions of New Brighton - old and new from local artists and residents will be on show in Marine Point, New Brighton in an exhibition called "love new brighton'. The window display of paintings, photography and craftwork will be on show from 15th March to 25th April in the Momentary Art Project unit (kindly loaned to MAP project by Neptune Developments). The 30 works were kindly selected by representatives of the surrounding businesses - from The Light Cinema, Brooklyn's, Chimchanga and Starbucks.

This is the 2nd exhibition at the Momentary Art Project, with new exhibitions planned following "love new brighton" as well as other secret projects, MAP is rapidly becoming a part of the art scene in Wirral
. The Momentary Art Project is in the process of becoming a community interest company with 7 directors who volunteer their time, expertise and enthuisiasm to promote and exhibit art within the community of New Brighton encompassing both residents and visitors.

The artwork to the left is a submission by Helen Bennett, a local Designer and illustrator working in West Kirby, with a love of the drawn line, the natural world and the decorative arts. She said of her submission:-

"Living on the Wirral Coastline I am always inspired by our wonderful Wirral scenery especially our coastline and the power and drama of the changing tides. When considering my entry for Love New Brighton I wanted to express this appreciation with New Brighton's most iconic landmark. With rich jewel tones and a stylised swirling sea I hope you enjoy my mixed media piece 'Changing Tides'."
