Date: Throughout July
Location: Lady Lever Art Gallery

Another View: Landscapes by Women Artists is a new exhibition at the Lady Lever Art Gallery that will present a different perspective on British landscape art, focusing on work by women. The exhibition will showcase around 40 works from the early 1800s to the 1980s. Presenting work by artists such as Vanessa Bell (1879-1961), Ingrid Pollard (b. 1953), and Dame Ethel Walker (1861-1951), the exhibition considers how artists have used their practice to explore the issues of their day, asking questions about class, gender, politics, and more through their depictions of landscape.

Speaking of returning heroes, look out for Jennifer Garner as Elektra, spinning her sai daggers for the first time in two decades – and watch this space to find out who The Crown’s Emma Corrin will play as the lead villain.
