The Liverpool Art Prize 2010 Opens

The Private Viewing for the 2010 Art Prize was a great success. A large crowd attended including not only a large section of the Liverpool art world from young studio artists to the heads of the major North West galleries but also local business leaders and politicians.

It was a warm sunny evening, a great atmosphere and of course excellent art.
The exhibition continues until Saturday 10 July 2010, the Awards are announced on 30 June.

Here are some lovely photographs of the artists with their works taken by McCoy Wynne.
