Grayson Perry Exhibition. The Vanity of Small Differences.

Made the effort to see it just before it closed Wow weren't we glad. It was fabulous and would see it again. Do also watch the TV series which gives you an insight into where he had his inspiration.

“Too much, too little time!”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

Good excuse for another trip to Liverpool, as ran out of time to make the most of this Gallery. Lots to see, art from all eras, arranged in rooms, loved the humour in the china gallery. Make this your first point of call, free entry, and in answer to the question do you use a red or blue mug, it's blue I'm afraid for Spurs!!!

“One of my favourite places.”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

This is one of my favourite places in Liverpool, even if you aren't into art.. it's a peaceful place to gather your thoughts. The building itself its amazing. Amazing art, could spend hours in there!

“A lovely city centre sanctuary”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

The walker is one of my special places in the city. The current exhibitions are always fab, the john moores prize a highlight at the moment - amazing new artists. The shop is lovely, the staff are lovely and the art is second to none. I would recommend a wander into the rooms with the really old art works - icons from centuries ago - the galleries are quieter and it is a lovely place to sit, breathe and appreciate beautiful art.
