Penny Lane Gallery – the art of music – the music of art

In the Beatles song Penny Lane the barber had an exhibition of photographs.

Today, visitors to Penny Lane in Liverpool can visit the Penny Lane Gallery and view a fabulous selection of all kinds of art with a musical theme.

Each piece either has a connection to Liverpool or to music.  

There is a large selection of Beatle-themed pieces, as well as a range of artwork from some of the world’s leading musicians.

The featured exhibition changes regularly, so there is always something new to see!

Upcoming exhibitions include "Shadowlands - Liverpool at Night" (May 25 to July 1), a collection from Liverpool's own Gerard Fleming that focuses on Liverpool’s amazing architecture and how it transforms in the dead of night, fog, and snow.  Anthony Brown, whose work includes the '100 heads' of famous Liverpudlians including all four Beatles, will be featured from July 5 to August 12.  Then, from August 16 to October 14, the work of legendary photographer Bill Zygmant will be exhibited at the gallery!  Watch this space for more detailed information on these, and other exhibitions.

As well as amazing art, the gallery has a selection of souvenirs for sale, including hand-crafted soap that is made on the premises.

Christine Colvin is the founder and curator of the Penny Lane Gallery.  She says: "It’s always been a dream of mine to own my own gallery. Music and art are my main passions, and being a Liverpudlian, where better to create the fusion than here on world famous Penny Lane.  So, in 2011, I took the plunge, sold my house, and made my dream happen! Do call in if you find yourself in the city. There’s a warm welcome waiting for you, plus of course, some fabulous art and photography!"
