Castlefield Gallery presents the relaunch of two New Art Spaces at The Towers Business Park, East Didsbury with the opening of three solo exhibitions of paintings and a live poetry and film event on Saturday 29 June from 12-6pm (Live poetry event 2-5pm). Working with the support of Property Alliance Group, Castlefield Gallery has taken on two large temporarily unoccupied office spaces to provide ‘pop-up’ exhibition venues for creative practitioners. Showcasing work by three artists from the CG Associates membership scheme, Ocean House features the paintings of Anne Parkinson and Jude Macpherson, accompanied by a series of works by Darren Nixon exhibited in Scotscroft. For the launch event, filmmaking collective Bokeh Yeah! will be hosting a screening of poetry films produced in collaboration with Comma Film. The event will also feature readings from poets Chanje Kunda, Adrian Slatcher, Anna Percy, and Janet Rogerson. The exhibitions are presented on a new display system specially commissioned by Castlefield Gallery for New Art Spaces, designed and built by artist and fabricator James Alderson.
