Popped in en route to Passport Office from Lime Street Station. A varied mix with good Victorian paintings, but especially liked the John Moore's Prize exhibition.

It is many years since I visited and my memories had not been false; it was still as good as I remembered. The variety and quality is beautifully presented from the Renaissance right up to date with the current entrants for the John Moore Prize on display. It will NOT be 15 years before I visit again!

I popped into the Walker Art Gallery with the grand-folks and the kids today. We had a really good time. I hadn't realised they had the kids area as you go in on the left. My two littluns are 5 and 8 and they both enjoyed themselves. Bella immediately set to drawing on the paper supplied, and glueing together crepe... More
