There is some fantastic art on display at the Summer Exhibition organised by Stockport Arts for Recovery in the Communities (Arc).
I officially opened the exhibition and was impressed by the variety and quality of the artwork produced, including crocheted sea creatures, jewellery and edible art.
I would urge everyone to visit the Summer Exhibition held in Arc’s Greg Sreet Studios and Gallery in South Reddish, which will be open weekdays all over the summer, from 10am to 4pm and which is free and open to all.
Many of the stallholders were exhibiting for the first time and this sort of event with its lovely atmosphere and air of creativity is exactly the sort of thing I want to see happening in Stockport’s Market Place.
