Art with Affinity: Pop-Up Exhibition

We are thrilled to announce that we are hosting another Pop-Up exhibition! We are working with Affinity Living to bring you ‘Art with Affinity’, a one-night pop-up exhibition showcasing a range of Greater Manchester artists.

This is a private event for all the residents across the Affinity Living apartments, from Embankment, to Riverside and Riverview where this exhibition will be held.

Thursday 28th July, from 6:30pm -9:30pm, we are inviting all of the 1200 Affinity Living residents to come and enjoy a night of art, chat, drinks, music and more.

This is a free to apply, Open Call event and we are inviting you Manchester artists to apply to show and sell your work at this very special event at a stunning, high-end apartment block.

This is different to any other event we have done before! We have been invited by Affinity Living to use their space to create events for the residents that live within their buildings. They pride themselves on being the place to live in Manchester.

Affinity Living is more than an incredible place to live – it’s a vibrant community where people from all walks of life feel right at home.

This is a private event for the 1200 residents there, so although it isn’t open to the public, we are still expecting a huge audience to come and see the amazing work we will have on display.

We will be providing the artwork, and Affinity Living will be providing the drinks and music, and together we want to create an exhibition that becomes a night to remember. A great one for artists to reach new audience and have the chance to sell their work to the residents there. And a night for the residents to let loose, have a drink, see some art and meet some artists, and meet their fellow neighbours also!

We’ll be taking over the foyer of Affinity Living Riverview, 29 New Bailey Street, Salford, M3 5GN, which is across the road fro the People’s History Museum, down the road from Salford Central Station and around the corner from Spinningfields.

This is a great venue to work with and another way for us at Cotton On MCR to promote Manchester’s art scene, sharing the work of Manchester’s artists.
