Head to Ebor Studio and Gallery Frank to meet and greet with their artists in their open studios. This is the first time in 3 years they have been able to do this event. So why not ‘take a tour around their historic building and meet their talented creatives in their studio spaces!’ It also includes a group show by their Associate Members too!

Open Studio | 2nd April

Showing in their Granada Foundation Galleries 1 & 2, Manchester artist (and one of our firends) Suzanne Bethell will be exhibiting her work at Home mcr. We were lucky enough to have Suzanne’s work in our previous ‘In Mancheter’ exhibition at Saul Hay, so we are super excited to see more of her work here. Suzanne ‘celebrates the power of colour to excite the eye, engage the heart and awaken the soul. Suzanne’s practice is expressive, intuitive and process-led, with many of her works being created when she is in a state of ‘flow’.’

Lucky Dip | 2nd Apr – 22rd May
