Didsbury Open Gardens 17 June Arts Trail

Not only will we have over 30 open gardens and spaces but we will again offer the Arts Trail, with pop-up exhibitions by various artists in a number of gardens. A summerhouse will host an exhibition by photographer John Eastwood in the Welton Avenue garden, and Eric Jackson of ‘Statement Artworks’ will be a big draw. BBC presenter and DJ Mark Radcliffe described Eric’s work as ‘Brilliant, witty and acerbic’ – so don’t miss it (The Old Surgery Garden) if you are looking for something out of the ordinary, special to the north of England and not available on the high street?

Then there are the ceramicists including Peter Mackereth and Sarah Pink who will set up stall in the Mayfield Drive garden, Nick Roberson’s stonework and sculpture and a demonstration at St James Church, and the lovely Mosaic Birds by Sally Cartwright at one of the Broooklawn Drive gardens.

Lat but not least, visit the Dan Pearson garden at Maggie’s at The Christie and view the work of National Portrait Gallery exhibited artist, Lucy Burscough, who is artist in residence at Maggie’s.

See you there!IMG_1801
