Open Art

8 July - 8 October 2016

THE Tameside Open Art Exhibition is back again and, as usual it’s using the broadest of brushes.

Unlike other events of its kind it has no selection procedure, so it provides the ideal opportunity for artists of all abilities to get their work displayed in an art gallery.

The exhibition offers the public a great chance to see the quality of work being produced in the borough by the widest range of professional and amateur artists. Paintings range from traditional watercolours to more abstract oils and cover a variety of subjects. There are also photographs and mixed media work.

Most of the work within the exhibition is for sale at reasonable prices.

'In the Eye of the Minder' by Marc Leyland. 'Cow' by Karen Stewart. 'Hartshead Moonrise' by Ken Massey.

The Rutherford Gallery

Harry Rutherford was a nationally renowned artist who came from the Tameside area. His career was long and varied, working initially as a draughtsman and then training with the eminent artist Walter Sickert.

The Rutherford Gallery situated in Central Art Gallery is a celebration of a 20th century master, an artist whose talent allowed him to experience many avenues of artistic life. The works on display will span his entire artistic career. Many will have never been on public display before.
