MOTHERS EXHIBITION – A SUPERB LAUNCH
The Festival of Firsts art program got off to a glittering start at the Holiday Inn, Hoylake with more than 70 attendees taking in the work of some star-studded names.
Feted artists, the Singh twins (pictured above) were among the audience as the Preview of the Mothers Exhibition launched – one of the many attractions at this year’s Wirral Festival of Firsts. The Exhibition is now on show at Holiday Inn, Hoylake until the 8th July. Admission is free.
Amrit and Rabindra Singh are British born twins of Indian origin, who have become world famous for depicting their home city of Liverpool and other scenes in the traditional Mughal miniature painting style but on a grand scale. Their work has featured in shows all over the world.
Harry Pye – who according to The Guardian is “changing the face of British Art” – originally commissioned 100 notable artists to create works representing their mothers, and the Festival has been able to bring 50 of these to Hoylake for the Festival, including works by Grayson Perry, Bob and Roberta Smith, Vic Reeves, Chantel Joffe, Adam Dant, Neil Innes, Lee Maelzer and Mat Humphrey.
