The Likeness of Things: Baum, Cockrill, Henri, Walsh


On until Saturday 16 July, The Likeness of Things: Baum, Cockrill, Henri, Walsh explores the work of four major artists who lived and worked in Liverpool from the 1960s.

These four influential figures of the Merseyside art scene are Adrian Henri (1932 -2000), Sam Walsh (1934 – 1989), Maurice Cockrill (1936 -2013) and John Baum (1942 - ).

The exhibition celebrates the work and friendship of this group who put Merseyside on the cultural map and continue to inspire artists today.
