New Gallery For Manchester/Salford!

A new gallery on Bridge street, right opposite Salford Central Station is to open. SALFORD CENTRAL ART GALLERY or SCAG is over 2000 square feet of new art space which places photography right at the center of it's programming. Starting as it means to go on the first show is to be a right Bobby Dazzler.
'Manchester Poly And the Class of The 70's is a look at the wealth of ground breaking talent to come out of the photography course ran at Manchester Polytechnic during the early 70's. The exhibition features the work of Martin Parr, Dan Meadows, Peter Fraser, Brian Griffin, Charlie Meecham, John Darwell and Kate Mellor. With such a line up this looks set to be one of the highlights of the UK photographic calender for 2010.

But then a noise outside startled me and I woke to realise that it had all been a dream. There was no new gallery and there was no new show looking at why the planets came together for those brief few years back in the funky decade. It had all been nothing but a dream and all we were getting was a fucking Football Museum. You didn't think I was going to let that lie did you?

Hahaha! I feel your pain Page. I hear you are now at Manchester Gallery, the upper crust of the Manchester art scene (not that there seems to be much of it...now). Well done anyway, I am 'proper' pleased you have moved on to better things.

is this a photo of the gallery or just another typical undergraduate banal arty photo of a space between 2 bridges? doesn't anyone in art school do pictures of red hot beautiful women anymore or under socialism is this banned?

It's a joke!? Dion I think all that wanking has made you lose your sense of humour!
