A LIFE IN PAINT
FROM MARCH 14TH
St Helens born artist Tony Garner sadly passed away in 2019. One of the towns most well known and prolific painters, Tony's work captures the essence of the town and the industries that gave the town its legacy after the industrial revolution. Amongst the images of looming towers and heat of industry you will also find intimate landscapes and abstract work. Tony was also prolific in his work in papier mache and there is a collection of work on exhibition on our mezzanine level. All of the work is for sale and all proceeds will go to charity at the request of Tonys sister, Christine.
The Gallery is open 10am - 4pm, Monday to Saturday - call 01744 22766 for more information.
At the heart of The World of Glass is our new gallery which was opened in time for the 2019 Open Art Competition in July 2019. This exhibition space has created a tranquil area within our busy visitor centre which will now showcase our extensive exhibition programme. From local artists,international glass workers and not forgetting our own heritage collection, all will be displayed in a unique setting putting art, culture and heritage at the forefront of everything we aspire to do.
