Eccles Community Art Gallery

Eccles Community Art Gallery first opened its doors in a longterm disused shop unit in Eccles town centre in November 2008. It started as a one woman project, but is now a thriving fully constituted not-for-personal-profit Community Interest Group. The gallery does not receive any external funding and is staffed entirely by artists and volunteers, giving the public a superb opportunity to interact with the artists and for the artists to get direct feedback about their work.

We present work by local artists, and consequently the work often has a local theme or interest. By creating a vibrant, interesting and sometimes challenging space we aim to increase footfall into the town centre, thereby improving the general feel and outlook of the shopping centre in Eccles. We also aim to provide a hub whereby different community groups can come together and interact, creating new and exciting projects.
