We are re-opening the Gallery tomorrow (Saturday 26th of June) at 10.30 after a little holiday. We will be so pleased to see everybody again and we are setting up a special window display for Alex Corina for his latest collection of prints.
The Amorous Cat Gallery is essentially a community art gallery showcasing the work of local Merseyside artists. We can be found in the popular Lark Lane area of Liverpool close to Sefton Park. The gallery is part of a community embracing cafes, restaurants and small businesses.
We are also pleased to host five thriving studios: Simon Banks, a print specialist; Ruth Burnley, who up-cycles furniture , Phil and Steve (East Street Concrete Creations) who produce concrete sculptures and a range of interesting artifacts; Ron Sear - general repairs; and Jan Sear’s art studio.
We are now stocking Katy Gardner's and Susanna Graham-Jones's book.
A Radical Practice in Liverpool: the rise, fall and rise of Princes Park Health Centre'
We are please to say that Katy and Susanna's book is available from the gallery for £9.99. Please phone or eMail to reserve a copy.
Princes Park Health Centre Book
We will be promoting the book written by two former doctors at Princes Park Health Centre, Katy Gardner and Susannah Graham-Jones, when it comes, hot off the press, at some time in April. The two women have written a history of the health centre covering a period of some thirty years and detail the innovative, community-minded pioneering work undertaken by a group of amazing doctors and staff who worked and changed the opportunities for health care in Liverpool 8 during this period. The book costs £9.99 and we are now able to take advance orders from anyone interested in purchasing a copy. Just email or phone.
April 26th - 10.30a.m. - 4.00p.m.
This day will be the beginning of a new venture for the gallery to raise money for two local community groups, Lark Lane and St. Michael’s Community Centre and the Greenhouse Children’s Project in Lodge Lane. Each month there’ll be a table sale of bric-a-brac and other items on a table outside our premises to try and boost the income of these two extremely well organised, essential and long-established organisations. Please come along if you’re in the area. We have enough items for the first sale, but after early May, if you have anything saleable just call in the gallery and we can store it for the May sale. Any help would be much appreciated.
Coming Events - Ruth Burnley's Pop Up Shop
Ruth up-cycles furniture in a room within the gallery and will be using the shop as a pop up venue early in May to display and sell some of the wonderful work she up-cycles. There will also be bric-a-brac on sale, so make a note of this venture in your diaries!
