John Moores Painting Prize 2018

Bankley member Joe O'Rourke is one of five prize-winning finalists nominated to win the John Moores Painting Prize, with his painting 'GIANTS'.

The John Moores Painting Prize 2018 exhibition will take place between 14 July - 18 November 2018. The gallery is open Monday to Sunday 10am - 5pm.

First held in 1957, the John Moores Painting Prize is the UK's best-known painting competition and is named after Sir John Moores (1896-1993), the sponsor of the prize. The competition culminates in an exhibition held at the Walker Art Gallery every two years, which forms a key strand of the Liverpool Biennial.

The name of the first prize winning artist for John Moores Painting Prize 2018 will be announced on Thursday 12 July.
