Welcome to the Cornerstone Gallery


Where practice and exhibition are placed at the forefront of the visual arts debate in Liverpool

The Cornerstone Gallery is located in and above the large main entrance to Liverpool Hope University’s city centre arts campus, The Cornerstone. The philosophy of the Gallery is to act as a platform to exhibit nationally and internationally established artists alongside new and emerging visual practitioners; to provide insights into artistic practice and process at differing stages of development.

The curatorial approach is designed to engage and promote discussion within the wider cultural life of the city and contribute pedagogically to visual and contextual studies for students.  The Gallery aims to inform, stimulate and challenge.

Exhibitions have included work by Adrian Henri, Stuart Sutcliffe, Paula Rego, Eileen Cooper, Alan Davie, Terry Duffy, Martin Greenland, Lisa Milroy, John Hoyland, prisoners in HMP Liverpool and that of newly emergent artists.

Artists and curators are always welcome to submit new and interesting proposals.
