Our October Manc of the Month is the one and only Tara Collette! We met Tara at our Art All Dayer where she was selling her glass work and banner pieces. Her work is different to anything else we have seen and that is why she is our current Manc of the Month artist!

Exhibition Review: ‘Stone’ by Steve Williams

Exhibition Review: ‘Stone’ by Steve Williams

Not every artist’s story follows a ‘normal’ path, and that is the case with artist Steve Williams. Glastonbury, world famous and UK’s biggest festival, is where Steve’s art career all began. And now, 3 years later, he has a solo exhibition of his sculptures and photography work at Stockport War Memorial Art Gallery!

Our August Manc of the Month is the lovely Rachael Addis! We’ve always loved Rachael’s work here at Cotton On MCR, and we’ve been lucky enough to have her work on display at our recent ‘In Manchester’ exhibition.

Artist review: Stephen Snoddy

Artist review: Stephen Snoddy

You’ll know when you see a artwork by Stephen Snoddy, he has a very distinctive style. I think it’s the mix of the bold colours and geometric shapes. But I hear you, there are lots of artists that work with bold colours and geometric shapes, but not like Stephen Snoddy does.

Coming up at Cotton On MCR

Our July Manc of the Month is the wonderful Jason Carr! We were lucky enough to have Jason’s work on display at our recent ‘In Manchester’ exhibition at Saul Hay Gallery, and his piece ‘The Ghost of You’ was voted the public’s favourite, plus, someone form New York spotted this painting online and purchased it!
