Visitors to Kirkby Gallery in Knowsley can catch a glimpse of the work of newly knighted illustrator Sir Quentin Blake.
The artist is best known for his illustrations in the stories of Roald Dahl, and he was knighted in the New Year Honours list.
An exhibition of his work at Kirkby Gallery has been drawing crowds since the Autumn and there’s just a week left. It’s on until Saturday, January 12, is free and is called “Quentin Blake: As Large as Life”.
It includes a stunning array of artwork commissioned for hospitals and health centres. There are also objects relating to some of his most famous drawings and even a children’s bedroom where visitors can immerse themselves in his world and curl up with one of his books.
