Local artist Andrew Alan Matthews presents his collection of paintings of Salford and Manchester by night. Living in Salford for 18 years, he fell in love with the views across Salford Quays and around Manchester City Centre.

He is a proud Mancunian artist producing original artworks of Manchester, Salford and beyond. His brand, philosophy and aim in life is to promote positivity through art, turning negatives into positives. For more information, visit Andrew’s website.

We are pleased to present Andrew Alan Matthews as the inaugural solo artist for our new community space, The Park Gallery, open weekends and school holidays only.

For more information, or if you are unable to visit in person, visit Andrew Alan Matthews exhibition online.
