If you’re stuck for something to do this Christmas holiday here is our guide to what’s on in the Liverpool area.
An exhibition titled Winter Lights will run until February 25 2007 at the Prescot Museum. This looks at the traditions surrounding winter light celebrations from across the world including Hannukah, Diwali and Christmas.
Walker Art Gallery in partnership with National Museums Liverpool and John Moores University is hosting the thought-provoking exhibition Cape Farewell: Art and Climate Change as part of the Liverpool Biennial.
Cape Farewell came into being when artist David Buckland gathered together a group of artists to join climate scientists and educators onboard The Noorderlicht, a 46m schooner, bound for the High Arctic.
To date there have been three expeditions enabling both the scientists and the artists to chart the effects of climate change in the region. The artists have created work inspired by their voyages, using a range of different media. This exhibition is on until January 28 2007.
Equally thought provoking is the Objects of Desire exhibition on at the Lady Lever Art Gallery. Here visitors can view an ever-changing selection of beautiful objects, which are available to purchase.
This wonderful display showcases contemporary crafts by designers who work with ceramics, jewellery, glass, metal and textiles. It is the first collaborative exhibition between National Museums Liverpool and the Bluecoat Display Centre, Liverpool.
All the exhibitors are from or are based in the north of England, most of them currently exhibit and sell at the Bluecoat, in addition to many other galleries both nationally and internationally. Between them they have collected many prizes and awards for their creations.
