Here at Cotton On MCR, we aim to create opportunities for all artists to showcase their art and build connections, and this is a great opportunity to mingle with other artists, talk to potential buyers, and reach new audiences.

We host a variety of exhibitions from big and small, to suit a whole bunch of artists budgets and to reach new audiences all across Greater Manchester.

Working with Moda is another way for us to show that art can be for anyone and made by anyone. Cotton On MCR’s events aren’t restricted to one location, meaning we have the flexibility to create exhibitions in new and exciting places.

Moda Angel Gardens can be found on on Rochdale Road Manchester Greater Manchester M4 4HZ. This exhibition will be held in their stunning atrium, a grand open area which is perfect for this one night exhibition! There will be drinks available for the residents, music and more!

This will be a fun, arty and unforgettable event!
