Up and Coming Artspace Events:
Sketching it Out
24th / 25th March 11am- 4pm
During 2017, a number of sketchbookscirculated between the members of
Artist group Unit 9.
The challenge for each artist was to make a contribution to the sketchbook, either responding in some way to what had gone before and developing a theme, or perhaps taking the thread off in an entirely new direction. A stimulating and inspiring collaborative work.
The group is based at the South Square Arts Centre, Thornton:
John Allcock Pat Belson Patricia Calver Jennie Crawford Sylvi Gibbs Diane Jones Richard Mort Denise Oukhaba Viv Owen Nikki Sheen Brian Rowlands June Russell
Nancy Stedman Kate Stewart
Bits of Stuff and occasional things - a Jonnie Brooks Art Show
31st March - 3rd April 11am - 4pm
Jonnie Brooks is a young artist whose career started at Northlight classes in his teenage years. Now a Fine Art student in Manchester, this is his first solo exhibition.He defies conventions in making his art. Seemingly random imagery from a plethora of theories, themesand concepts collide to create a very personal, multi-layered take on the world we live in. His work uses diverse media: painting, assemblage,
sculpture, sound and installation.
“I take great influence and joy from chaos and it's eventual purity”
