The autumn exhibition at Manchester’s Castlefield Gallery, running from 11 October until 16 November, features new work by three young British artists- sculptor Nigel Mullan and painters Gillian Ord and Andy Thomson.
Accompanying the exhibition will be a programme of activities, free to the general public, including the video showing of ‘David Hockney on Modern Art’- 29 October to 3 November, each day at any time – in which Hockney offers a personal account of the development of modern art and a slide talk by Nigel Mullan entitled ‘A Million Years of Sculpture’ – Saturday 12 October at 2.30pm in Castlefield Gallery – looking at sculpture as one of the oldest cultural activities. The Saturday art shops for kids (age 6 – 11) will run throughout the exhibition – every Saturday 10.30am to 12.30pm, admission £1.50.
Emma Anderson, the gallery’s recently appointed Education Officer, will also be organising a series of talks for individuals, schools and colleges, free of charge.
To further entice the Manchester public in out of the autumn drizzle, we are now selling coffee and have a large selection of postcards and art magazines for sale.
Why not come along to the preview of this exhibition on Thursday 10 October at 6pm, enjoy a glass of wine and meet all three artists.
