a day of galleries

There are often many great galleries, exhibitions and events happening on our doorstep, yesterday I went to see a few things on in Manchester and another lovely day was had.

There were some stunning works in the Dark Matters collection at The Whitworth.
I wasn't able to photograph my favourite thing about yesterday, which was a large, dark room with a glass sculpture and a light which spun and projected the shadows of the forms onto the wall. It was really beautiful, like you were in a spinning world of shadows. I think it was a collaboration by several artists, you should really go and check it out while you can!

There was an interesting exhibit in Manchester Art Gallery about works surrounding the theme of Manchester and Mancunian artists.

Rachel Goodyear's work seems to be everywhere! You may recognize her work from my last post from Yorkshire Sculpture Park.
Some evoking pieces by David Hockney and Lucien Freud.
Aaaand I managed to snap some pics from the Grayson Perry exhibition, before I was told not to!
