A retrospective of the art of Liverpool-born (Waterloo) artist Josh Kirby, who sadly died in 2001, has just started at Walker Art Gallery. It runs from 15 June - 30 September 2007. Kirby was most famous for his Terry Pratchett's Discworld novel covers, but a painting more closely linked to us as a Star Wars fan group is this one - [link=http://www.liverpoolmuseums.org.uk/walker/exhibitions/joshkirby/return_of_jedi.asp]ROTJ movie poster[/link]. He also did a poster for [link=http://www.liverpoolmuseums.org.uk/walker/exhibitions/joshkirby/life_of_brian.asp]Monty Python's Life of Brian[/link]. Should we have a trip down to this? The Walker Art Gallery is open every day 10am-5pm (Closed all day on 25 and 26 December and 1 January) so we can pick when we want to visit. There are also linked events to the exhibition [link=http://www.liverpoolmuseums.org.uk/whatsonnet/eventseries.aspx?sid=73&eid=1532#1532]here[/link]. If we really want to stretch the Waterloo connection (where he was born), we could do the exhibition, then a trip down to Waterloo where the Anthony Gormley "Another Place" statues are located, and then the curry at Coriander.
