Exhibition News – People Watching

Posted on in NEWS

This show marks the start of our new ambition for the Gallery. Each year we will hold one exhibition where there is a clear and coherent underlyng theme, and which moves away from simply having a sense of Northern-ness. Of course artists from the North West will still play and important role in the work we sell, but we want to acknowledge that there is a big art world out there, and begin to explore it in the gallery.


Exhibition News – Metropolis

Posted on in NEWS

Exploring the way a metropolis is emerging from the once down on its heels British city, this show looks at the urban landscape of Greater Manchester.


Exhibition News – Steve Capper, Northern Colourist

Posted on in NEWS

In an art world in the North increasingly dominated by Lowry-inspired paintings full of people and buildings, Steve Capper stands apart with his bold and contemproray use of vibrant colour and his eschewing of traditional motifs. He focuses on the shapes and patterns formed by the clouds, hills and fields surrounding him and emphasises the simplicity of form with the bold and occasionally surreal use of primary colours, creating traditional landscapes painted in a unique way, and still lifes full of vibrancy. Sitting comfortably somewhere between representational and abstract, Steve has achieved that rare feat in the Northern Art World – his paintings are instantly recognisable and indisputably his own.

Exhibition News – The Northern School: A Reappraisal

Posted on in NEWS

Marking our one year anniversary of moving from Macclesfield to Hale, the exhibition coincides with the publishing of the book of the same name and shows works from a wide range of artists who can be linked to The Northern School


Out Now – new art book, The Northern School: A Reappraisal

Posted on in NEWS

This book is the first attempt to define the Northern School, and explain that far from being comprised of Lowry copyists, it was a coherent school depicting the changes wrought in the North-West by the collapse of Lancashire’s heavy industries and the impact of two World Wars. The School was about more than simply preserving a lost landscape, it was an artistic celebration of a people facing and adapting to the consequences of irreversible global change. It was a school that mourned the past and yet looked to the future, tentative but confident and willing to use the tools supplied by its major influences, most notably Edgar Degas, Walter Sickert and L S Lowry.

The Northern School has become one of the most commercially successful art movements in the UK, and the book explains its origins, influences and possible future. This was a school inter-connected with the main movements in Modern British and European Art and the book examines the work of its greatest pupils in this context.
