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…
Marquetry artist Ian Smith has a new exhibition coming up: 2nd June–July 31st. Ian’s wonderful, unique work is a must see, wine and nibbles on the official launch – no excuses not to pop in! Ian’s Instagram page: @themarquetryshack
Hello everyone, our Arist Of The Month for May 2018 is Rob Fitzhugh. Rob’s fantastic giclee photograph prints on board are only £85 each, come and have a closer look at his brilliant work in the gallery which us on display until June.
We have been very busy at the gallery this week, amongst others, this beautiful painting by Roger Needham is now off to a new home. More work by Roger due in this week – as always – please pop in to see the paintings in all their glory.
We have an exciting opportunity coming soon, with the chance to purchase an original piece of artwork from each of our members for only £1! The soon to be named ‘art-vending machine’ will dispense original art uniquely created by a selection of our members for only £1. One of the artworks will contain a golden ticket – this will give the lucky winner a chance to choose any framed giclee print by our resident artist Gordon Clegg.
100% of funds from the machine go towards keeping The People’s Gallery open, without these donations, we would not be able to survive. We are also planning to donate funds from the lucky dip machine periodically to popular local charities – we will notify everyone when we are doing this in advance. Everyone’s a winner – Watch this space!
