Quick update – I’m delighted to see that since we visited them a couple of weeks ago, Gorton Visual Arts have started blogging about the development of their soon-to-be-exhibited Our ‘Ouse Project. It’ll be really interesting to follow their work process. Look out for GVA at Victoria Baths later this summer, too.

Who said artists have to be tortured or starving in a garret? When I visited the creative types of Gorton Visual Arts group, I couldn’t have had a warmer welcome -or a better choice of biscuits on offer. The group, which works from a studio overlooked by Gorton Monastery, is on a bit of a mission to raise awareness of their part of the city and to use their artistic talents to preserve our Mancunian heritage.

I joined them at their regular Monday meeting to find out more about the group, its work and the project members recently undertook at Victoria Baths. Work from the project has already been well received at an exhibition in Kro Piccadilly, but is due to return to its roots with a special exhibition at the Baths itself this June (dates to be confirmed).
