PREVIEW – Launch Pad: Martin Hamblen

4 September 2014 / 6-8pm

Join us for the preview of our next Launch Pad project, a solo exhibition by CG Associate member Martin Hamblen on Thursday 4 September from 6-8pm.

The exhibition was selected through open submission by a panel including Cheryl Jones, Gallery Director at Grand Union, Birmingham, and Castlefield Gallery’s Programme Manager Matthew Pendergast.

Launch Pads are short exhibitions or performances that sit in-between Castlefield Gallery’s main exhibition programme providing artists, writers and independent curators with the opportunity to use the gallery as a test bed for the production, display and consumption of contemporary art. Launch Pads feature emerging talent selected from CG Associate members’ submissions (three times a year) and from the MA and BA art courses at Manchester School of Art (once a year). For more information about the CG Associates visit the members page.

Exhibition continues 5-14 September 2014.  For more information about the exhibition visit

Castlefield Gallery’s Launch Pad programme is supported by Soup Kitchen, Manchester.
