Amazing abstract work by each artist, which was very inspiring as well as the sculptures. Would enjoy visiting again soon.

Popped in here after work a week before the BUY ART FAIR at the old granada studios. Spoke to staff about exhibiting my art or the possibility of bringing in my portfolio as I'm based in the city centre. Frosty response in person and also had zero response from emailing. Very disheartened and poor. Would not recommend. Narrow art space... More

Visited today and just loved it! All staff incredibly friendly.. fabulous art-work and so much information about the artists known by the gallery. Should be on everyone's 'must see' list of things to do in Manchester!

Don't dodge this one, well worth the short walk down Quay St from Deansgate to find this place. Great array of original artwork, a pretty broad selection for home or office. I bought one of Matt Wilde's amazing line-drawings...literally a single line across the page or canvas that captures a group of people (and a dog), like a queue at... More

Stumbled across this a while ago by chance and made a mental note to revisit, came back and enjoyed the peaceful setting and simplicity. Artzu fills the walls but not overbearingly, it's about quality not quantity. Particular highlight was the Manchester painted tour pieces by Matt Wilde; featuring a stunning portrait of NQ's Night & Day café with a poster... More

Mass produced stuff which looks like the product of art students trying to make a few quid to supplement their student loans.

I was looking for artwork for my living room that represented Manchester my home town. Fell in love with Tim Garner's work - gritty, real and brilliant. Staff helpful with purchase too.

What an absolute joy to stumble upon this fabulous art gallery. It's located in the old Granada buildings that used to house the Coronation Street mob, although I'm pleased to say the old has made way for the new and it is outstanding. I chatted with the proprietor, Nick for some time and he is one of the most genuine... More
