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.
April 21st-25th Shakespeare's Birthday Display
APRIL 21ST -25TH – A DISPLAY OF WORK RELATING TO SHAKESPEARE WHOSE BIRTH DATE IS APRIL 23RD.
We are producing an extensive window display by our artists in honour of Shakespeare’s birthday. Many thanks to Ruth Burnley and Cleide Ellis for work directly related to the Bard, and to Philip Canter for the loan of his books.
Please come along and have a look at this small exhibition.
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.
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!
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.
