“HOPE” New Year Community Art Exhibition

Poster on brick gatepost

Opens 14.00 Friday 1st January and open in daylight hours until dusk (16.00) on Sunday 3rd January in Park Range Rusholme M14

In this time of Covid and with art galleries and museums closed, we all need encouragement for a hopeful future.  In response we are holding a street art exhibition over the New Year Bank Holiday weekend.  Outside and socially distanced, we welcome visitors to Park Range for three days of celebration of our collective creativity.

More than forty neighbours aged 2 to 80 have made artworks on the theme of “Hope” in a range of media – painting, photography, poetry, printing, drawing and knitting!  Displayed on the gateposts and viewed from the pavements, Creative Rusholme and Schuster Road & Park Range Residents’’ Association welcome you.

We expect visitors to wear masks at all times, to keep 2m apart and we ask that you move in a clockwise direction round our street when viewing the 65 artworks which will be on display.

Organiser and resident artist Phil Barton says: “Working with neighbours we have organised this show to bring us together in a creative and positive way as the hugely challenging 2020 becomes the new opportunity of 2021.  We have been delighted at the enthusiasm, skills and creativity of our neighbours from many cultures, from young children to established artists, and very much hope people will enjoy the work on show.”

All the work has been made by residents on the street or those with close associations with it.
