Have you seen the 'Mersey Shore - Coast' exhibition yet?

LIVERPOOL artist launches 'Mersey shore' exhibition of Liverpool's coastal region as report shows Liverpool businesses disconnected from regions value as a world heritage site.  Liverpool is the 5th most visited City in the UK, with over half a million international visitors coming to the region each year. The impressive statistics place Liverpool, behind only:- London, Edinburgh, Manchester and Birmingham.

The Annual England Attractions Survey recently found that growth in tourism across England has been strongest in visits to Gardens and Historic Houses. Reports have suggested that it is possible that the rise is connected to the rise of TV shows showcasing England's natural beauty and historic buildings such as “Downton Abbey.”

Despite this, a survey of Liverpool businesses highlighted that the City may not be appreciating the world heritage site filled coastal region in the same way that international visitors are. It found that just 7.5% of Liverpool businesses think that the City's brand as a World Heritage Site is important to the Liverpool City Region.

Liverpool artist Steve Strode used to travel all the way down to Cornwall to paint the landscape, but recently realised how much natural beauty he was missing out on closer to home. This week, he launched his new:- 'Mersey Shore - Coast' exhibition at Editions gallery in Liverpool's Cook Street.

Steve said:- “I think I'd taken my home town for granted, you don't always have to go away to appreciate beautiful landscape. We're really lucky in Liverpool as the coastal walk is supported by a good rail network that runs alongside it, so by hopping on and off I've walked and painted on site at various locations along the shore over the last few months. I still paint the urban sprawl, but it's great to get out along the Mersey and Sefton coastlines with their beaches, woods and dunes. I hope that more people will take advantage of the great walks, landscapes and world heritage sites right on our doorstep.”

Steve Strode's free exhibition:- 'Mersey Shore - Coast' will be showing at Editions Gallery, on Liverpool's Cook Street, until Saturday, 5 November 2016.  It is well worth a visit!
