    Thank you to everyone who has RSVP’d so far. This is a quick reminder that Castlefield Gallery’s Director, Helen Wewiora invites you and a guest to join us for a special pre-preview event when there will be complimentary drinks and a short exhibition tour with the artists from AND A 123 at 5pm on Thursday 21 September 2017.

    AND A 123 will showcase work by artists from across the UK that explore relationships between everyday objects, routines, repetition and spectacle. Featured in the exhibition is Lisa Watts’ latest body of work Not a Decorator, a project informing Watts’ research on the possibilities for performance presentation in gallery settings. At Castlefield Gallery the themes and ideas emerging from Watts’ work have catalysed the group exhibition.
