Liverpool Town Hall in the
VISITING dignitaries are set to receive
a brand new piece of art depicting Liverpool Town Hall.
Liverpool Town Hall has worked in partnership with local art organisation
dot art, to produce an exclusive new limited edition print which features the
newly restored fa'de of the Town Hall.
The design was created for free by South Liverpool based artist Jane Adams who
presented the print to the Lord Mayor Councillor Roz Gladden, on Monday, 21
November 2016. Prints will then be given as a gift to civic parties at future events
hosted by the Lord Mayor.
dot art, who opened a new gallery in Queen Avenue, just off Castle Street in
February, were approached by the Town Hall team earlier in 2016, with the aim
to update the gifts presented to guests which haven't changed for more than a
decade. The gallery recommended Jane due to her eye catching and unusual
style. Jane's distinctive work has been popular with the public for many years
and her range of architectural prints of many Liverpool landmarks can be seen
Councillor Roz Gladden, said:- "Liverpool Town Hall is one of the jewels
in the City's Crown, and people are always overwhelmed by how beautiful it is,
inside and out.
Having seen Jane's existing body of work, I'm excited to see this new piece of
art from such a talented local artist. Presenting visiting dignitaries from
around the world with a token from the City is a hugely important mark of
respect, and I am certain that this gift will be well received."
Managing Director of dot art, Lucy Byrne, said:- "We have worked with Jane
for many years now and were delighted to facilitate this prestigious project,
ensuring her work will reach a national and international audience. It is also a
fantastic opportunity for us as an organisation to cement our relationship with
Liverpool Town Hall, who have been incredibly supportive of our work since we
opened our new gallery earlier in the year."
The original work will be on show at the dot art Gallery, from Friday, 25
November 2016, as part of their Christmas Exhibition:- "The Liverpool Collection."
The print will also be on sale at Liverpool Town Hall for ?35.
