28th JANUARY – 17th MARCH 2017 Open weekdays 10-4

PAPER, Transformed is a collaborative exhibition showcasing visual artwork from artists connected with PAPER Gallery in Manchester and work from a select group of artists who have emerged from Arc’s creative wellbeing programmes.. People who don’t necessarily consider themselves artists, but who are developing a practise that deserves to be seen.

The title ‘Paper, Transformed’ echoes the belief in the power of creativity to transform people’s outlook, opportunities and wellbeing…
The ordinary made somehow magical or extraordinary through a creative process.

Featured Artist: Alison Waters
Yumi Makes, Michelle Cullen, David Milligan Croft, Jayne Carney, Lynne Robinson, Kaz, Stephanie Shaw, Lesley Halliwell, Linda Hemmersbach.
