The Chapel Wharf Exhibition

We are back with another pop-up exhibition and another open call for all you amazing Manchester artists!

We will be hosting a private exhibition for the residents at Chapel Wharf, on Thursday 24th November.

This one night event is not only a way for the residents to get together, enjoy a social night and buy some art, but a way for you artists to connect with a new audience, to sell your original art, prints, and new for this pop up – sculptures are welcome too! Plus it’s a chance to network with the residents and fellow local artists.


In this pop up exhibition, which is open to all 995 apartments at Chapel Wharf, not only can you artists display your original work, but you can also bring a small selection of prints/additional pieces to sell too. We have held a few pop-ups now and they have been a great success, with artist successfully selling original work and prints, and later being booked for commissions.

We are calling all Greater Manchester artists to submit their work for The Chapel Wharf Exhibition. The exhibition is open to all to apply, professional, hobbyists, students and everyone in between. It’s free to apply and only successful applicants are asked to pay a fee towards the event – no commission will be taken from any sales either!

Chapel Wharf is a spacious and stylish apartment building, with plenty of practical storage and hotel-quality furnishings. It has been designed to perfectly suit any lifestyle, with an exciting range of on-site services. It is a pleasure to be working with the and organising this exhibition on their behalf.
