DESPITE what felt like the 2nd Flood on Tuesday evening, the torrential downpours certainly did not dampen the spirits of the attendees at the ArtHouse Private View on Tuesday night.

'Faces and Figures' is Lisa Langan's latest showing and the exhibition is being presented at the Eastbank Street gallery in Southport as reward for Lisa's painting 'Sore Loser' being voted the People's Choice at last year's Sefton Open.

Those already familiar with Lisa's instantly recognisable tabletop still life imagery will be in for a surprise at the portraiture on display. The confident mark making and vibrancy of the oils make the subjects almost step out of their frames and start up a conversation.

There was a real feeling of deja-vu at Tuesday's opening night as more and more of the guests were re-introduced (some for the 1st time) to Lisa's finished portraits of themselves after the original sittings.

It was something of an identity parade as visitors on arrival were compared with Lisa's re-invention of them in oils. All the paintings were carried out in Lisa's studio in Southport, where each sitter had been 'frozen' for the duration of the painting (usually 2 hours) after being made more than welcome into the homestead by Lisa's over-excited daschund, Mischa.

Unquestionably, the ArtHouse has currently been turned into Southport's own version of The National Portrait Gallery for the duration of Lisa's exhibition.  'Faces and Figures' is now on show at:- SCA/ArtHouse, 65 Eastbank Street, Tuesday through to Friday from 10.00 to 15.00 and Saturday's from 11.00  to 16.00 until 29 February 2020.

6 Figure Technology Investment Provides Enhanced Service to Merseyside Pet Owners

PET owners in Merseyside are to benefit from a ₤150,000 investment in a new, state of the art CT scanner, at Medivet 24 Hour Alder. Based on Eaton Road, the West Derby emergency veterinary Hospital and General Practice has just taken delivery of an advanced CT scanner. The new tech will enable the team to carry out scans on patients from the Merseyside area as well as surrounding practices in the North West.

Branch Partner and veterinary surgeon Geoff Potts explains:- "We are all incredibly excited to be able to offer this improved access to advanced imaging to the Local pet community. As well as speeding up diagnosis, CT is particularly good for identifying issues in hard to access areas and will help us intervene quicker. It will also support us with surgical planning; allowing us to quickly examine 3D images of tumours and bone fractures, for instance. Looking ahead, it can even be used to produce bespoke surgical implants with a 3D printer."

Medivet 24 Hour Alder is one of Medivet's numerous emergency Hospitals that are open 24 hours, 365 days a year. The practice provides day and night emergency care and expertise for surrounding vets; including other Medivet branches in the North West such as Anfield, Aigburth, Brodie, Mossley Hill, Speke and Warrington. The 24 hour Hospital is located in West Derby and can be contacted on:- 0151 220 4668.
