Third Space Exhibition

Third Space

I am currently taking part in a group exhibition titled “Third Space” in the new Cardroom Gallery, 68-72 Chapeltown Street, Manchester, OL5 0HS.

Brought together though conversations between artists in Manchester and York and in an effort to bring closer links between the two cities, Magnus Quaife has selected a small group of works that demonstrate a playful and determined attitude to artistic practices.

The gallery is open on Fridays from 12-4 or by appointment (call 07811 267752).
