Colour & I Are One

Bankley member James Roper is exhibiting in a group exhibition celebrating the joy of colour through painting, sculpture and film.

It was Paul Klee who exclaimed “Colour and I are one. I am a painter” following an epiphany while on a trip to Tunisia in 1914.

Each of the seven colourists represented in Saul Hay Gallery’s fourth exhibition bring to their work a deep understanding of the language and power of colour to evoke an emotional response in the viewer.

The Windows Project

An exhibition of the work at the Nexus Art Cafe on Dale Street in Manchester.
12 May - 12 July 2011

The Windows Project
Carolyn Curtis Magri
Charlie Ryder
Andrea Cotton


The next exhibition in The Windows Project is opening at Nexus Art Cafe from 7.00 pm on Thursday 12th May and runs until July 12th. A new artist has joined the project - Andrea Cotton - with work based on objects found in the prison environment. My own work continues to be informed by what effect institutionalisation has on the individual's identity in such an environment.

On June 24th, there will also be an evening of performance, poetry etc. with a slightly humourous stance, called The Bright Club. You can access what all this is about on the Nexus Art Cafe website. The theme for this event is 'obsession'.
