Sir Paul has announced that next year his beloved home city of Liverpool will host the first comprehensive exhibition of his art work. The show will be the first to be held in the Walker Art Gallery's new special exhibition galleries and marking the completion of a major multi-million improvement program.
Sir Paul announced: "I've been offered an exhibition of my paintings at the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool where John and I used to spend many a pleasant afternoon, so I am really excited about it. It's from October 2001 till January 2002. I didn't tell anybody I painted for 15 years but now I'm out of the closet."
The exhibition, the result of negotiations between Sir Richard Foster, Director of National Museums and Galleries on Merseyside and Sir Paul's agent, Robbie Montgomery, will display 60 paintings created by Sir Paul over the last 12 years. The Walker Gallery's curator Michael Simpson said he had difficulty in selecting works for the display. "Many of the paintings in the show are new and have never been previously exhibited or published. They reflect different periods in the artist's life, his music, his humour and his links with the city of Liverpool."
