Liverpool neighbourhoods take centre stage at dot-art

Liverpool’s dot-art gallery has teamed up with Liverpool Architecture Festival to offer A Window to your Neighbourhood this summer.

The exhibition, which opens on Friday, features work created by 15 artists exploring the architectural and place making elements of the city’s neighbourhoods through artistic interpretation.

It aims to shift the emphasis away from Liverpool city centre’s famous buildings and streetscapes and concentrate instead on its surrounding neighbourhoods where “our small businesses thrive, communities grow and resilience is built.”

The works were chosen by a panel made up of architects and dot-art’s managing director Lucy Byrne and gallery manager Claire Henderson.

The overall winner of the selection process is Simon Ward with his work Portrait of Dr Sam Naghibi, who wins a £500 voucher for art supplies and a year’s dot-art membership.

The panel also chose three runners up – Gill Cowley for Quarry Green Club, Martin Jones with Ghosts and Neale Thomas’s Bootle Gasworks. They each receive a £100 voucher and a year’s membership of dot-art.

All the artworks, which are created in a range of media, are on show at the dot-art gallery in Queen Avenue, off Castle Street, until August 17.
