Set Out your Stalls
10 February - 15 April 2017
As part of Ashton Market’s celebratory event and Heritage Open Day 2016, children from local schools and groups worked alongside professional artists to create their own mini market as an art installation on Ashton Market. Each participant also achieved an Arts Award DISCOVER. Central Art Gallery’s exhibition ‘Set out your Stalls’ is bringing the art installation together again for all to see.
The Rutherford Gallery
Gallery dedicated to Harry Rutherford
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.
