Bankley Open 2021 presents works from 20 artists selected from our annual open call.
"The judges were drawn to works that stirred a sense of intrigue, often dream-like narratives, that spoke of human, personal stories..."

Bankley Gallery is situated on the first floor of an old mill building, which unfortunately is currently only accessible by stairs. The studios are located on the first, second and third floors and are also only accessible by stairs.
The building is located just off the main road, with regular bus services from Manchester and Stockport, and is around 450m from Levenshulme train station. The station has no lift and both platforms are only accessible by stairs.
