An in-conversation with Katie Tomlinson and Robin Megannity

Join our currently exhibiting artists Katie Tomlinson and Robin Megannity for an in-conversation around their creative careers. Both artists are based in Manchester and will be here in person to discuss their journeys so far. They will be invited to speak openly about the ups and the downs, the mistakes and the successes they have experienced, what they have learnt and what helped them along the way. They will talk about how they have managed to sustain their practice as artists from their time in education and early development to exhibiting nationally and internationally. The discussion will also include advice on how to navigate gallery representation, pricing, selling and exhibiting artwork.
