The PAGB is the coordinating body for photographic societies and clubs across the country. Each year they hold a major exhibition that tours the country (in 2015: Faversham, Maidstone, Oldbury & Newport) showcasing the 150 prints judged to the best of those submitted by the local societies. The Williamson Art Gallery have had a close relationship over many years with some the local photographic groups and have shown the annual Lancashire & Cheshire Photographic Union exhibition many times.

Village Wirral from 27th of January until 18/12/16 in Gallery 13
(please note previously advertised as 20th January start date - small delay)

Looking through the A-Z or speak to any person in Wirral and the word "VILLAGE" crops up a lot. Wirral is often perceived as a series of village communities that still identify themselves as separate from their neighbours. This is a look throughsome of the Williamson's paintings that pick out the distinctiveness of many Wirral communities.

Selection from the Williamson collection of oil paintings from the late Victorian and early Edwardian period are on show in Gallery One until the end of January.
Liverpool Painters of the 19th Century which begins on the 3rd of February and ends on the 20th of March 2016

The Williamson will show additional work by those featured artists and a group of paintings and drawings by other artists working in Liverpool at the time.
