Colourfield Gallery, Manchester Confidential and Rosso also invite you to a Charity Artist Dinner at the Preview Evening – full details below.
Lancashire-born Michael John Ashcroft worked as an engineer before a major operation for a brain tumour in 1998 made him decide to turn his hobby of painting into a career.
Since then he has gained many awards for his work including acceptance into the Manchester Academy of Fine Arts and the Royal Institute of Oil Painters Exhibition in London. His paintings convey a fascination with light and dark and love for the city and the landscape.
“He is a worthy heir of those in the great tradition of Lancashire painters.” David Lee, art critic
Michael's work has become highly sought-after. ‘Reflections of Manchester’ will be his most significant solo show to date. All the works will be viewable and available to purchase on the Colourfield website two weeks before the exhibition.
The exhibition will be at Rosso on 9 October, then will continue at Colourfield Gallery Poynton, from 11-23 October.
Colourfield is one of the region’s largest independent galleries specialising in Northern Art. You can explore today’s new generation of Northern Artists – work which is built on understanding the past and capturing a present where historic buildings rub shoulders with cutting-edge design, and where Manchester has emerged from the soot and the smoke as a major modern British city.
Colourfield Gallery features the work of over 50 Northern Artists, with paintings starting from just £350. The gallery is a five minute walk from Poynton Station which you can reach from Manchester Piccadilly in about 30 minutes.
Join us for an evening of fine Italian food to celebrate the launch of Reflections of Manchester. It's an opportunity to chat to gallery owner Ed Perry, and fellow art lovers, while raising money for an excellent cause. All proceeds from the dinner go to Nordorf Robbins – a music charity dedicated to transforming the lives of vulnerable children and adults.
The table will be yours for the entire evening to relax and admire the artwork.
You'll be served five exquisite courses with wine for just £45pp.
