New art gallery to open in West Kirby

An exciting new art gallery is set to open its doors at the end of September.

The Lake Gallery, located on Grange Road in the heart of West Kirby, will showcase a selection of fine art and contemporary craft from established and emerging artists.

An independent, artist-led venture, the gallery is the vision of three Wirral-based creatives; glass artist Helen Smith, painter Clare Flinn and mixed media artist Marianthi Lainas.

Drawing on their years of experience working as professional artists, they hope the gallery will become an established destination for visitors to discover and buy beautiful and affordable contemporary artwork.

Gallery owner and co-founder Helen Smith says, “The past couple of years has sadly seen the closure of several art galleries across the peninsula, so we’re thrilled to be bringing a stunning new gallery space back to West Kirby town centre.

“We believe that, during these difficult times, art is more important than ever, offering an uplifting respite from the daily news. We’ve been working hard over the past few months to create a fabulous contemporary display space and we have a dynamic programme of exhibitions planned for the coming months, which we can’t wait to share with art lovers and collectors.”

The Lake Gallery opens on Thursday 22 September with its inaugural exhibition, ‘Of Land and Sea’. Running until 22 October, the show will present a vibrant collection of original paintings, ceramics, sculpture, glass and mixed media pieces from six established artists.
