DotArt 'Bread & Roses Exhibition'

DotArt 'Bread & Roses Exhibition'


DotArt 14 Queen Ave, Castle St, Liverpool. L2 4TX

5 April - 25 May 2024


I'm really pleased to have some of my works on paper included in this exhibition at DotArt. The concept of the exhibition is taken from the Oppenheim poem 'Bread & Roses' and features a wide array of artworks from more than 20 Dot-Art members, its a great show showing mostly artworks from Liverpool based artists such as Hilary Dron, Ali Barker, Aleksandra Jackiewicz and I particularly loved the work of Neale Thomas. There really is something for everyone.. at affordable prices.

“For the people hear us singing: Bread and Roses! Bread and Roses!” Bread and Roses was a poem written in 1912 by James Oppenheim, about women and children striking for better wages and working conditions.

The metaphor of Bread and Roses is that we all need bread to feed our bodies, but we also need to be nourished by life’s roses: art, music, literature, education, and nature.

As the cost-of-living crisis continues, we wanted to curate a group exhibition that showcases the best of affordable art. This show is dedicated to featuring original works under £200 and limited editions under £100. Owning art does not have to break the bank and quality artworks do not have to have eye watering prices."
