An immediacy of time and place is vividly captured in painting, drawing and collage in this wide ranging exhibition by Colin Binns.
The artwork reveals his fascination with the colour, form and sense of movement found in explorations of our towns and cities. Their character is powerfully conveyed through mixed media drawings, whilst urban energy and atmosphere come to life through his strong and expressive semi abstract paintings.
A theme of urban renewal emerges in much of the exhibition, particularly in the artwork responding to Manchester's regeneration since the dramatic 1996 damage to the city centre.

Ups and Downs
Saturday 1st October 2016 to Sunday 4th June 2017
Maria Carroll has collaborated with her brother Matt to create works for this exhibition. Maria has always been an inspiration to her family, manifested in her innate visual and artistic approach to the world around her.
The use of vibrant, strong colours and striking images to visualise her world will inspire and uplift. Maria, who has Down Syndrome, is part of a large family born and brought up in Little Hulton. Her artistic collaboration with Matt, better known for his work with Central Station Design, is used as a therapeutic way to positively face hurdles in their lives.
