Following the amazing success of our Art All Dayer in August, we are back with another, the Art All Dayer: Winter Edition! Saturday 20th November you can expect everything you have come to know and love about Cotton On MCR events, plus much more!
We pride ourselves on creating events for Greater Manchester, which are ran by and show off the talent of those right here in our region! We are all about promoting local artists and talent and celebrating the amazing, Manchester art scene. We want to create events that are open and welcoming to all, to show how there are a number of ways you can get involved in art, whether that be an art fair, workshops or exhibitions – we have it all!
Not only will we be back at the beautiful venue of Hallé St Peter’s with 60+ Manchester based artists selling their arts, crafts, jewellery, ceramics, homeware and Christmas gifts too, we’ll also be using their sister venue around the corner, Hallé St Michael’s! That is right, we are expanding! Alongside the art fair, we are back with our art workshops, housing these in both venues, but this time we have more classes and they’ll be more Christmas themed ones – of course!
Plus, we will be hosting another solo artist exhibition! Again we will be celebrating another one of our Manc of the Month artists but who that will be is up to you! We will be putting the exhibition to a public vote, and you will crown the ‘Manc of the Year!’
Come see us on Saturday 20th November, Hallé St Peter’s, 11am – 6pm, £1 entry (on the door)!
Here’s a little taster of what to expect from our last event:

And we can now reveal that the WINNER of our MANC OF THE YEAR competition is….
Rachael is a contemporary painter based at Rogue Artists’ studios in Manchester who’s practice is fundamentally a mark making process. She creates beautiful abstract landscapes by applying a multitude of paint layers and patterns to the canvas which is underpinned by the philosophy of Zen Buddhism and its influence on abstract expressionist painters in the 1950’s. Racheal work seeks to establish a contemplative and meditative aspect both for the viewer and for herself.
Rachael Addis will be showing her work in a solo exhibition at Halle St Peter’s. PLUS! You will have the opportunity not only to see Rachael’s work on display but also to attend a seminar where Rachael will discuss her paintings and the process of how she creates. These talks are FREE! And are scheduled for:
12.15pm (15-minute talk) and 2.00pm (15-minute talk). Make sure you are at the venue to hear and speak to the artist herself!!
