Steven Heaton: Cotton On Mcr is an invaluable source of all that is creative and happening within the Manchester Art scene. As well as listing and reviewing big events at the major galleries, the real reward of following Cotton On Mcr is their inquisitive ability to route out all the new upcoming artistic talent in all those wonderful hidden gems and guiding you to truly wonderful exhibitions and finding your new favourite artists. Cotton On Mcr have been incredibly supportive to me with ‘Manc of the month’ and their promotion of my work as well as stocking a selection of limited edition hand block prints in their amazing online shop. It’s the continued support from genuinely enthusiastic and friendly people that make the Manchester Art scene a glorious place to be.
