Friday 12 February – Monday 28 March 2016
Emma Brown – What’s Holding Me Back?

Viewing Friday 12 February 2016, 18.00 – 20.00

The Gallery at Bank Quay House is pleased to present What’s Holding Me Back? a new solo exhibition by local artist Emma Brown, exploring obstacles and struggles faced by freelance creatives.

In attempt to gain a wider understanding of artistic pressures, Emma has invited nine creative practitioners to give accounts concerning difficulties they face when making work. This new exhibition comprises Emma’s personal visual response to their statements exploring performance, output and status.

Based in Manchester, Emma’s practice involves using hand-rendered processes combined with digital editing and finishing to create beautiful illustrations. This new body of work is part of an ongoing process of development and acceptance of Emma’s own progress and position in the artistic community.

What’s Holding Me Back? opens to the public on Friday 12 February, 6-8pm. There will be complimentary refreshments available and the chance to meet the artist and discuss her inspired work.

The Gallery At Bank Quay House is located on Sankey Street, WA1 1NN, opposite Bank Park.
Admission Free: Open Mon-Fri 8.30-5pm, Saturdays by appointment
Exhibition continues until 28 March 2016.
