This exhibition features cutting-edge work across a range of media (paintings, ceramics, metal work and jewellery) from both established and emerging artists, all of whom either studied at Manchester Metropolitan University or are based in Manchester - or both! Including paintings by David Hancock, ceramics by CJ O'Neill and Joseph Hartley, objects by Lucy Harvey, metal work by Imogen Clarkstone, and jewellery by Jane Dzisiewski and Megan Ocheduszko.
Also running throughout July is an exciting off-site residency project that will be taking place in St Helen's Square in York. John Newling: 21st Century Eden is the first of four long-term artists’ residencies in the centre of York between July and December 2014 that together form PH1: Artists in Place. As part of the collaborative opportunities within the PH1 project, a number of bursaries of £300 are available to artists from any discipline to participate in each residency, along with the use of shared studio space at the New School House Gallery. Apply by 5pm on 28 June.
During John Newling’s residency, the artist will be investigating the question ‘What do we really want?’ It culminates in two performances on 29 and 30 July. Tweet your answers to @ph1artists, or tell the artist face-to-face in St Helen's Square!
PH1 is supported by Arts Council England through Grants for the Arts, City of York Council as part of the York: Be Part Of It Festival, York St John University, University of York and York Museums Trust. Future residencies include Delaine and Damian Le Bas (Sept-Oct), Stevie Ronnie (Nov-Dec) and Catherine Sutcliffe-Fuller (Jul 14-Jan 15).
