Doesn’t look like a book / Hidden in the Open: 1st of October until the 1st of November 2015
From 1st October, visitors to the Williamson Art Gallery, will be invited to take part in a treasure hunt to uncover over 20 hidden artworks.  Artists from as far as America and Sweden, along with their British counterparts, have been making handmade books out of ordinary everyday objects, to exhibit in the gallery.  Far from being a traditional exhibition, the books will sit beside the objects in the gallery. Blending in, hidden, but out in the open. Visitors are invited to pick up a ‘treasure map’ from the gallery foyer and find all of the books on display. Prizes will be given for all artworks found. The exhibition is curated by Wirral artist Wendy Williams, whose artwork is made from found and recycled objects.
