Gallery Hoylake Exhibition

Gallery Hoylake makes Hoylake an even more exciting place to visit!

We are planning a more extensive Gallery Hoylake than in recent years.  During the Festival, shops and businesses along Market Street and Birkenhead Road have been invited to create a window display with a local artist to celebrate their own business and the work of the artist, helping to showcase their art, craft or jewellery.

Gallery Hoylake this year includes a weekend Preview Exhibition at Melrose where all participating arts and crafts can be view prior to going out to the shops.

Each collaborating shop will be given a footprint to display to indicate their inclusion in Gallery Hoylake and this year’s Gallery Hoylake competition. Shop displays will be preceded by the two day preview exhibition at Melrose Hall.

We invite everyone to follow the footprints to enjoy a magical trail of beautiful art works!

We invite artists to participate in Gallery Hoylake. Please check the Terms and Conditions [link to T& Cs] and then complete the online form and payment, or contact Barbara Singleton directly : M: 07423057618
