The Walker Art Gallery celebrates 50 years of craft collecting with a series of new displays that showcase the work by established and emerging makers in the North West who present their work on the international stage.

Past Present Future: Celebrating Craft, draws on the gallery’s outstanding collections of late-twentieth-century craft.

The exhibition includes studio ceramics, glass, metalwork and furniture, and demonstrates how makers combine the traditional skills of the past with ideas for the future.

The artists featured in Past Present Future: Celebrating Craft are Julia Carter Preston, Halima Cassell, Jacob Chan, Claire Curneen, David Frith, Margaret Frith, Hugh Miller, Attila Olah, Verity Pulford, Emma Rodgers and Paul Scott.

The exhibition is shown in a series of displays in the Walker’s Craft and Design Gallery, as well as in Rooms 5 and 11 when the Gallery reopens in spring 2021 (date to be confirmed).

Past Present Future: Celebrating Craft is supported by the Art Fund’s Professional Network Grant and is presented in partnership with the Williamson Art Gallery and the Bluecoat Display Centre.

A range of work by the makers featured is on sale at the Bluecoat Display Centre, College Lane, Liverpool.
