Frank Green – Pictures of Liverpool
MAJOR RETROSPECTIVE EXHIBITION OF FRANK GREEN’S WORK AT ST GEORGE’S HALL, LIVERPOOL, 4TH JULY – 31ST AUGUST, 2015.
Following on from the hugely successful Frank Green and the Welsh Builders exhibition at Plas Glyn-y-Weddw in north Wales earlier this year, in which these builders’ contribution to the architectural wealth of Liverpool was celebrated, Frank is thrilled to have his work displayed at the new galleries at St George’s Hall in a new retrospective exhibition of Frank’s work entitled ‘The Art of Frank Green’.
Visitors can expect to see a vast body of work attesting to Frank’s great fondness for the city of Liverpool, its people and architecture; and will feature the artist’s work in watercolour, oil, pastel, conté crayon, pencil, and pen and ink across the 6 new galleries in the basement of St George’s Hall.
Prints and cards of Frank’s paintings can be purchased at the gift shop at St George’s Hall and, to mark the occasion, new bags and tea towels have been printed with images of the Pier Head by Frank. Mugs have also been produced with images of LFC and EFC.
St George’s Hall is conveniently located near Lime Street Station, Queen’s Square Bus Station and close to major roads in the city.

About Frank Green
Frank Green has been painting Liverpool landscapes for over fifty years. He works mainly in watercolour but also in oil, pen & ink, pastel, chalk, conté crayon and pencil.
Many of the scenes painted by Frank have since disappeared and his work now serves as a valuable record and tribute to his beloved home town. His most popular subjects include the Liverpool Waterfront, Everton and Liverpool FCs, the Mersey Ferry, and the Town Hall. He has also painted many streets, pubs and churches within such districts as Walton, Anfield, Mossley Hill, and the City Centre.
Over 100 prints have recently been added to the Frank Green – Pictures of Liverpool Galleries including Dale Street, Ferry Boat at Sunset, Liverpool Town Hall and over 40 pubs, streets and churches. Click on the side-bar or dropdown menu to view the latest additions.
Talks and Demonstrations
Last year, Frank took part in the hugely successful North Wales ArtFest organised by the Denbighshire Art Society. He was also a guest speaker for the Society and led a demonstration in composition for the members which was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
Frank has had two major retrospective exhibitions: at the Williamson Art Gallery and Museum, Birkenhead in 2005 and at the Liverpool Academy of Art, Seel Street, Liverpool in 2011. Frank’s work has also been exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.
Information about future exhibitions and other past exhibitions will be added to the site in the near future.
