Not At This Address
1 August â€“ 7 November
Building on its practice of bringing the best international art to Bury, the Gallery presented Not At This Address. This exhibition looked at the growing number of artists in the region who share the same drive to transcend the local and, with some success, engage with the global cultural dialogue. Using a wide range of media from watercolours to computer animation, the exhibition threaded a path through questions of memory, hope, action and what is real.
The artists featured were Jesse Ash, Brass Art, Maurice Carlin, Alison Erika Forde, Pat Flynn, Rachel Goodyear, Andrew McDonald, Amy Pennington, Magnus Quaife, Rachel Well, Sarah Sanders and Anne Charnock.
