Alison Scott - The moments inbetween
Thursday 12 May - Wednesday 8 June
The first solo exhibition by rising star, Salford based painter and printmaker Alison Scott. Ordinary people coming and going, waiting and whiling away time, caught in the moments inbetween. They may seem a little odd but they are oddly familiar. Come and meet them and enjoy their stories, thoughts, wishes and dreams...
John Maher - Nobody's Home
Last year a moving BBC documentary 'Grand Tours of the Scottish Islands' featured photographer John Maher (in his youth drummer with The Buzzcocks) exploring the deserted crofts of Harris and Lewis. The fruits of this is 'Nobody's Home' a haunting and innovative seris of light painted, long exposure photographs, some an immense size, many of them shot during the dead of night under a full moon which interpret the Hebridean landscape in a new way.
Nobodys Home continues until Sunday 5th June
