Liverpool Study Visit

OCA tutor Mark Clough will be leading a study visit to the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool on Sat the 9 August 2014.

We will be able to view both Grayson Perry’s ‘Vanity of Small Differences’ tapestries and the John Moores’ Painting Prize 2014 which are running concurrently.


This exhibition of six spectacular tapestries by Turner Prize winning artist (2003), Grayson Perry, tells an epic tale of human nature and social constructs.

Perry designed the tapestries as part of a series he made with Channel 4 in 2012, called ‘In the Best Possible taste’


The John Moores Painting Prize brings a fascinating array of approaches to one of art’s most traditional mediums.

The endurance of paint to both enable and inspire artists to create radical, beautiful and challenging work presides over the exhibition.

The mix is eclectic, with landscapes, portraits, abstract and sculptural works united only by their manipulation of paint.

Admission to both shows is free. To book your place email

    This sounds like a really great study trip. It will be difficult to take it all in, but will give plenty of food for thought.
