"A Taste of Potfest"
16th May 2015 - 5th Jul 2015
Introducing 16 top quality ceramic artists from our neighbouring counties - Lancashire, Northumbria, Co Durham, Dumfries and Galloway and the Scottish Borders. All are well established, well respected in the ceramics world with very distinctive individual styles. More than 200 potters from all over the UK, mainland Europe and beyond will be showing their work over the two weekends of Potfest this summer. A taste of Potfest shows the work of some of our nearest neighbours who will be taking part in that festival.
Working with Geoff and Christine Cox, the organisers of Potfest, we all think that this exhibition will add a new dimension to ceramics and ceramic artists in the north west.
A taste of Potfest will be the first ceramics exhibition in our new "Upstairs at Upfront" gallery space.

The Sixty Two Group
The 62 Group is an artist led organisation. We aim to incorporate and challenge the boundaries of textile practice through an ambitious and innovative annual programme of exhibitions. Since its establishment in 1962 some of the most highly regarded British textile artists have been members of the 62 Group. The membership is now international and is achieved through selection. The group represents a wide range of textile disciplines including tapestry, embroidery, feltmaking,print, constructed and three-dimensional approaches.
