John Moores Painting Prize 2018

Bankley member Joe O'Rourke is one of five prize-winning finalists nominated to win the John Moores Painting Prize, with his painting 'GIANTS'.

The John Moores Painting Prize 2018 exhibition will take place between 14 July - 18 November 2018. The gallery is open Monday to Sunday 10am - 5pm.

First held in 1957, the John Moores Painting Prize is the UK's best-known painting competition and is named after Sir John Moores (1896-1993), the sponsor of the prize. The competition culminates in an exhibition held at the Walker Art Gallery every two years, which forms a key strand of the Liverpool Biennial.

The name of the first prize winning artist for John Moores Painting Prize 2018 will be announced on Thursday 12 July.

Andrea Cotton


The next exhibition in The Windows Project is opening at Nexus Art Cafe from 7.00 pm on Thursday 12th May and runs until July 12th. A new artist has joined the project - Andrea Cotton - with work based on objects found in the prison environment. My own work continues to be informed by what effect institutionalisation has on the individual's identity in such an environment.

On June 24th, there will also be an evening of performance, poetry etc. with a slightly humourous stance, called The Bright Club. You can access what all this is about on the Nexus Art Cafe website. The theme for this event is 'obsession'.
