Wirral art gallery to host 'sound and vision' workshops
11:37am Tuesday 10th September 2013 in News
THE Williamson Art Gallery and Museum is inviting people to a weekend of family fun as part of its Sound and Vision exhibition.
The performance art event, which celebrates the talents of Wirral's young musicians and artists, takes place at the venue in Slatey Road, Oxton, this Saturday and Sunday, September 14-15.
It has been running since June and includes an exhibition called Little Red Room by Robyn Woolston; an artist and filmmaker who works with waste materials.
Using redundant instruments donated by Wirral Schools Music Service, Robyn has created an installation at the Williamson and the museum is offering families the opportunity to take part in two free workshops, inspired by his work.
Robyn said: "This is an opportunity for the whole family to come and look at, think about and make art as a response to the Little Red Room, whilst in parallel explore sound, voice and interaction."
Councillor Chris Meaden, cabinet member for health and wellbeing, added: "Robyn's work is a real inspiration and these workshops will be a great way for people of all ages to use their creative skills and enjoy doing something a bit different."
People are welcome to drop into an art workshop anytime this weekend from 10am-12.30pm and 2pm - 4pm.
There will also be four ‘soundscapes’ workshops taking place at 10.30am, 11.30am, 2pm and 3pm. No booking is required.
