OUT OF DIFFICULTY COMES OPPORTUNITY: SKETCHES BY MARY BURKE

4 September – 1 October

Exhibition of sketches by local artist Mary Burke, documenting the buildings and people of Cheetham and Crumpsall, including a 20 metre long installation illustrating Cheetham Hill Road.

Mary began sketching three years ago as therapy to aid her recovery from a serious accident which left her with memory and cognitive problems.

Through sketching in her own backyard of Cheetham she was able to discover a rich tapestry of cultures, people and communities as well as recalling her own childhood memories of growing up in the area.
