In our first exhibition in the PERSPECTIVES programme, text and line are leading themes in the artwork displayed at Elizabeth Gaskell’s House, the restored home of celebrated English novelist and writer Elizabeth Gaskell in Longsight. Taking place from 1 November – 2 December, emerging artist Michael Beard’s sizable text drawings, conveying hopes and dreams to explore the world will be exhibited alongside Florence’s neatly embroidered typography piece about her favourite YouTube videos. Also on display will be acclaimed artist Barry Anthony Finan’s porcelain scrolls, featuring his continuous lines of writing about his fascination with ‘TELEVISSIONS,’ the BBC and prominent figures in his life.
Artists: Jennie Franklin, Barry Finan, Michael Beard, Florence, Terry Williams, Richard Holder, Violet Elmsley, Anthony Whitefield, Bilal Khan, Neelam Ahmed, Jess Taylor, Tom Johnstone, Christine Blackburn, William Hall, Samantha Ratcliffe, Fred Collins, Andrew Hylton, Luca Agathogli, Darren Bates, Olivia Morgan, Kathy Wilmot, David James and Michael Gleave.
