The Fab Four by Allan Jones

Changing exhibitions

Bury Art Gallery has a selection of exhibitions with a broad appeal that have something to offer art lovers with a variety of tastes.

Any Day Now

19 July to 20 September.
Any Day Now is a digital arts project managed by Bury-based arts organisation Unity House and funded by Arts Council England. Throughout the summer of 2013, the project worked with young people from three libraries in Bury - Topping Fold, Brandlesholme and Dumers Lane. With the support of local artists, the groups created photography, sound and video content. This will be on display at Bury Art Museum for the first time.

Becoming An Artist: action is Art

9 August to 13 September.
Becoming An Artist (BAA) is an alternative way of how to become an artist. BAA sets out to create a non hierarchical and process based situation where artists of all levels of professional experiences meet. In an environment of mutual exchange and support the members of BAA engage in a process of collective and individual development of artistic confidence. In this show members of BAA will show collective and individual responses to the principles of Becoming An Artist.

Twenty Years of Freedom and Fine Art: Start in Bury

13 September to 15 November.

Start in Bury is an organisation that assists people with mental health issues to develop their creativity and confidence through the visual arts. Start in Bury is twenty years old this year and as part of their celebrations we are delighted to present another vibrant show of members' recent work.

Hsiao-Chi Tsai & Kimiya Yoshikawa- Scintilla from our sun

26 September to 29 November.
Tsai & Yoshikawa have been commissioned to make a major new, site-specific work for the recently opened, Bury Sculpture Centre. This piece has been inspired by the historical identities of the town and also the surrounding cultural quarter. The new Sculpture Centre is a hub of the Irwell Sculpture Trail and this landmark work will be installed at the entrance, contrasting this fine, Classical stone building, to coincide with the launch of the Asia Triennial Manchester. Bury Art Museum will also feature a major
exhibition of Tsai & Yoshikawa's work, bringing together sculptures which will be collectively grouped to form a dialogue as one new work. This installation will create a refuge, a glimpse into an enchanting other world, a utopian vision and an uplifting escape from apparent conflicts which continually dominate society.
