Liz Jeary was our final exhibitor in Unit 13

We are very sad to longer have a unit at Marine Point as it has been a very happy home for our exhibitions since the end of 2012 and we thank Danny, Security team and management for all their support.

Our final exhibitor was Liz Jeary showing contemporary photography with embelishment of embroidery. It was very kindly reviewed by the wonderful folks at Art in Liverpool with an article by Neil Murphy. Apologies to Liz for not updated our blog before.  It was a wonderful exhibition to end on and glad she was able to open up the exhibits so regularly especially for the Astral Coast event with Arts and Mind Festival and the Love New Brighton Parade on her final weekend of exhibiting.

We hope to work with all the people at Marine Point again, having had great collaborations with The Light Cinema amongst other businesses.

Update for August: What is happening in the car park behind the Travelodge at Marine Point?

Local artist Fred Biddulph explaining to an interested member of the public his technique as he creates a huge mural entitled A MOMENT IN TIME. The painting is a Momentary Art Project sited on one side of a Marine Point shipping container located in the car park.
Former MAP exhibitor in The Three Elements exhibition in 2013, Fred Biddulph (signwriter and mural painter) has been working on a scene of New Brighton with the permission and support of Promenade Estates at Marine Point to create a mural to liven up the rear of the hotel and businesses in the development. Brighten New Brighton is a MAP initiative to bring colour to the grey prom area of New Brighton. There are already several panels on Harrison Drive produced through initiatives from MAP and these will be joined by a large mural with Nicola Taggart of Tag Arts working with Mount Primary School and volunteers to decorate a United Utilities building on the dips.
The completion of the painting will coincide with the installation of more popular colourful benches located along Ian Fraser walk. The bench project is initiated and administrated by the Wirral Older Peoples Parliament with the support of our MAP director Carl Leckey MBE CF FRSA.
