EXHIBITIONS

Drawing The Collection
To coincide with the national event of The big Draw this exhibition takes museum collections from
around the North West for inspiration. Artists have come together to produce work which are
significant to each individual because of their association with an item, building, piece of artwork or the emotion it provokes. Taking drawing in its broadest meaning we have challenged artists to be‘creative’ with the mediums they use – expect the unexpected and maybe find a new way of drawing. Saturday 9th September to Friday 3rd November, The World of Glass Arts and Heritage Centre.

An abstract retrospective by Phil Wilkinson
Phil has brought together an eclectic collection of his abstract work which Phil himself has said Maysurprise people. Expect both bright and bold juxtaposed with sombre and dark images to create a very personal exhibition. Saturday 9th September to Friday 3rd November, The World of Glass Arts and Heritage Centre.

The Glass Wardrobe
A look back at Women’s fashion from the late 1890’s to the end of the 20th Century. The rise and fall of the hemline And the cinched in waist of the corset to the unrestricted dropped waist from the 1920’s, we’ve even got a bit of Lurex form the 1970’s. This is really a true reflection of how women have battled with the social aspect of body image And how we wrap our bodies to please society. Saturday 9th September to Friday 3rd November, The World of Glass Arts and Heritage Centre.

Art Club St Helens
An exhibition of members work. The Exhibition takes place from the 2nd to 21st October in the event area of St Marys Market. There will be a preview evening on Thursday 5th October from 6 – 8pm. Refreshments will be available and everyone is welcome.
