Visiting dignitaries are set to receive a brand new artwork depicting Liverpool Town Hall.
Liverpool Town Hall has worked in partnership with local art organisation dot-art, to produce an exclusive new limited edition print which features the newly restored façade of the Town Hall itself.
The design was created for free by South Liverpool based artist Jane Adams who will present the print to the Lord Mayor Councillor Roz Gladden on Monday (21 November). Prints will then be given as a gift to civic parties at future events hosted by the Lord Mayor.
dot-art, who opened a new gallery in Queen Avenue, just off Castle Street in February, were approached by the Town Hall team earlier this year, with the aim to update the gifts presented to guests which haven’t changed for more than a decade.
The gallery recommended Jane due to her eye-catching and unusual style. Jane’s distinctive work has been popular with the public for many years and her range of architectural prints of many Liverpool landmarks can be seen here: www.dot-art.co.uk/jane-adams
Councillor Roz Gladden, said: “Liverpool Town Hall is one of the jewels in the city’s crown, and people are always overwhelmed by how beautiful it is, inside and out.
“Having seen Jane’s existing body of work, I’m excited to see this new piece of art from such a talented local artist. Presenting visiting dignitaries from around the world with a token from the city is a hugely important mark of respect, and I am certain that this gift will be well received.”
Managing Director of dot-art, Lucy Byrne, said: “We have worked with Jane for many years now and were delighted to facilitate this prestigious project, ensuring her work will reach a national and international audience. It is also a fantastic opportunity for us as an organisation to cement our relationship with Liverpool Town Hall, who have been incredibly supportive of our work since we opened our new gallery earlier in the year.”
The original work will be on show at the dot-art Gallery from Friday 25 November, as part of their Christmas Exhibition, “The Liverpool Collection”. The print will also be on sale at Liverpool Town Hall for £35.
