The abandoned buildings project is back. Hooray!

The very fine Abandoned Buildings Project as created by Jane Samuels, loiterer of distinction, will be on view as part of the Salford University Contemorary Arts MA Graduation show

The preview is next week, 13 January 6pm at Salford uni's Chapman Gallery and Allerton Annexe. At 7pm the show moves to Nexus Art Cafe, Dale s.t, Northern Quarter, Manchester

Many of you will know Jane and have seen her beautiful and haunting images when some were included in TRIP. I really would urge you to go and see her work if you can - I personally love it, and think it a far more enchanting look at the art of urban exploration than some other current exhibitions. Plus, of course, MA shows are always interesting and enlightening.

I won't be at the opening due to a date with erm Mary Poppins so if anyone wants to join me on a trip to Salford the following weekend do please holler. I'll check opening times, transport, closing dates etc and add them here soon xx

Thanks Morag for that lovely review!

The Nexus portion of the show runs for a month. I believe Nexus is open 10am - 7pm seven days a week, and their rather lovely night cafe is back again too.

The Salford university bit of the show only runs for a week, but some of the A.B.P will be moving over to nexus.

Thanks to everyone for their ongoing support of the project - I'll keep people posted on dates for new explorations if anyone wants to come along. Jx
