Hello art lovers! We will soon be looking forward to the 20th Anniversary of The People’s Gallery! To celebrate this event, we will be hosting a special afternoon at the gallery on Friday 21st June from 12pm, where Manchester’s Mayor Andy Burnham will be here to help us celebrate, along with other guests. There will be a special window display from our favorite local artists, (list to follow) and this will also follow on for a month, so no excuses not to come along! Please spread the word –there will be refreshments too – so you can have a cheeky glass of wine whilst viewing some beautiful artworks! More to come…
Hopefully we will have a new member joining us very soon: Keith Wittington. Keith is a local artist, and will also be hosting a new window display in the near future. Watch this space! Here is Keith with one of his recent works:
Morning all…here is a teaser of an exhibition we will be having in November to coincide with poppy day by ex-solider and fantastic artist David De Souza. There will be also be an opportunity to meet the great guy himself, so no excuses not to turn up!
We have a new artist at the gallery with brand new work for sale: ‘2nd Gear’, Oil on canvas, 50 x 60 cm, £65. Please pop along for a closer look. Trevor will also be exhibiting a small show with us later in the year. 🙂
Saturday’s preview of Ian Smith’s fantastic marquetry work went really well. Here is Ian with Councillors John Taylor, Mrs Taylor and Councillor Dave Sweeton. The official launch will be next Saturday June 9th, everyone welcome
