AIR Open 2019

22nd August -21st September 2019


AIR Gallery is proud to present our third annual summer show the AIR Open 2019; featuring 32 multi-disciplinary artists working in the field of contemporary art.

This diverse show features a collection of artwork that has been carefully selected by our panel from the hundreds of applications we received from local, national and international artists. The overall result is a great mixture of new and early-career artists, giving an exciting insight into what contemporary art is in the here and now.

Supporting this year’s exhibition has been CassArts; who graciously supported every applicant with discount, Castlefield Gallery and GreatArt who are sponsoring two of our main awards.

The exhibition takes place from the 23rd August until the 21st September at AIR Gallery; part of A4 Studios CIC based on Grosvenor Road, Altrincham. Visitors are encouraged to vote for their favourite work as part of our People's Choice Award. Many of the works featured are also available for sale, providing an ideal opportunity to support emerging talent worldwide.

Many thanks to our judging panel Alan Baker, Freda Wilken, Will Marshall and art collective Short Supply for helping select the works for the show.
