Artists’ Talk: Saturday 11 February, 3-4pm
Turps Gallery presents ‘In Conversation’, an exhibition showing the work of two painters, Róisín Fogarty and Suzy Willey. Recently they have had the opportunity to come together through the expanded network of Turps and establish a dialogue about their respective painting practices. Both painters rely on modules or units of vivid colour to form patterns which serve to push recognisable imagery in and out of the paintings at different times in the making of the work.

JOHN MOORE’S PAINTING PRIZE 2016
Open: 8 July – 28 November 2016
Preview: 7 July (7-9pm)
Venue: Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool
First held in 1957, the John Moores Painting Prize is the UK’s best-known painting competition and is named after Sir John Moores (1896-1993), the sponsor of the prize. The competition culminates in an exhibition held at the Walker Art Gallery every two years, which forms a key strand of the Liverpool Biennial.
The John Moores exhibition is held in partnership with the John Moores Liverpool Exhibition Trust, and although the appearance of each exhibition changes, the principles remain constant: to support artists and to bring to Liverpool the best contemporary painting from across the UK.
