MADE IT 2019

MADE IT 2019 was a group show celebrating the graduating talent across the North West class of 2018/19. Featured artists from Manchester School of Art, University of Central Lancashire and University of Salford just to name a few, the show looked to promote some of the highlights of degree show season up North.

These 14 artists have a strong and considered practice which they intend to build upon as they develop outside of education, but all have already found success either within their first year outside of university, or before even graduating. They have shown resilience, passion and a diverse skill set which has set them up for success as artists - and if a group of people like that don’t deserve to be shown off in an exhibition we don’t know who does!

On August 15th, during the opening night while celebrating their achievements, we awarded two of the artists our Curator’s Choice and Cass Art Prize. The Curator’s Choice winner received a cash award of £100, and our sponsor Cass Art offered a solo show in their Manchester Store exhibition space in Autumn 2019.

Exhibiting Artists: Alicja Mrozowska, Beth Wise, Candice Dehnavi, Ellie Brennan, Emily Wills, Jay Mulholland, Lydia McCaig, Madeleine Ismael, Maria Ansell, Megan Needham, Oliver East, Saoirse Lewis, Sarah Gilman, Shelby Lloyd.
