Here is a quick poster I made:
Stay Tuned for who’ll be there.
The Sunday Market is going on holiday. Yes that’s right folks the market won’t be at the Mill for the next couple of weeks BUT don’t be sad, it’ll be relaunching bigger and betterer at FAT OUT FEST on 7th August. It’s going to be monthly too. Each month is going to be themed. It’s going to be good. Keep your ear to the ground.
There will be NO Sunday Market this week the 19th June. REPEAT. There will be NO Sunday Market this week the 19th June. Sorry folks but it will be back on 26th June so save your pocket money for then.

Roll up for the PAPERGIRL MANCHESTER EXHIBITION LAUNCH
Wednesday 15th June
Soup Kitchen, Spear Street, 6pm until Late
Come on down for some mid week action. This wednesday will see the launch of the 2011 Papergirl exhibition. Papergirl will be distributing rolls of art by bicycle to passers-by. Come see the art at Soup Kitchen before it is distributed. Featuring illustration, photography, design, screen prints and zines from 50 local and international artists.
I will be joining the fun by taking the Sumi Ink Club from the market to Soup Kitchen for live drawing that everyone can take part in.
Click on this sleek poster to RSVP via Facebook.
Created by Aisha Ronniger in 2006 in Berlin and branching out first to Manchester and then to other cities across the UK, Papergirl is: participatory, analogue, non-commercial and impulsive. Papergirl is distributed like a newspaper, but not edited or printed like it. It consists of art pieces that are rolled up together. There are no guidelines as to format, subject matter or quantity, so originals, prints, photos, copies etc. come together. Each roll contains several different works, meaning that each one holds a unique combination of works. The art rolls cannot be sold and they are not delivered to subscribers. Giving the work out by bike means that there is no time for any stereotypes when choosing recipients of the pieces. You have to react fast and spontaneously. Chance plays its part.
It’s all about quality not quantity this week:
Bright and colourful jewellery, handmade in good old Manchester
Lovingly created homeware and accessories
This week is also your LAST CHANCE to see the wonderful ‘Manchester and Salford: Themes and Variations.’ An exhibition of prints by Robert Shadbolt. There will also be a stall in the gallery selling prints, badges and some lovely screen printed hankerchiefs.
Who’ll be there? Well, there will be some familiar faces and some débutantes too:

So…If that isn’t enough to entice you from your bed this Sunday what else will be going on in Salford?
As part of the Say Something Series of events at the Mill, this Sunday will see the screening of the EMBRYONIC FILM PROJECT, a collaboration between artists Louise Woodcock and Jennifer Mcdonald. On recently discovering the work of Derek Jarman, Louise and Jennifer are using their week in residency at Islington Mill to embark on a new film project. In their first use of film Jennifer and Louise will draw together a number of recent influences.
The film features two women (McDonald and Woodcock) in Pendle Hill, famous for it’s association with the witch trials. The characters perform ritualistically using tribal symbols including animal bones, hair and wool. The film will be displayed with sculptural objects that were used in the film and with a live improvised soundtrack from WOMB.
The screening will be at 3pm in the first floor gallery.
The main art gallery will be open continuing the exhibition: "Themes and Variations: Manchester and Salford." Illustrator ROBERT SHADBOLT has been making drawings based on current and historical references in Greater Manchester and they are really worth a look. Prints of the work will also be available to buy, along with screen printed handkerchiefs and badges.
Don’t forget the usual Sumi Ink Club and Salford Zine Library will be there too.
