Artist Residency News!!

A key objective of the Python galleries is to provide a platform for local artists and support emerging talents. With this in mind, we have recently initiated new residency spaces within the buildings.  The space is given to a local artist, free of charge, for three-six months, during which time they can reflect on their practice and develop new work.

The Gallery At St George's House, Bolton

Following on from Tracy Fenton’s residency, we are happy to welcome our new artist Jenny Drinkwater.


Jenny plans to create a walk-in, manufactured landscape based on my experiences of the urban and natural colliding together. “I will work in the space in an exciting, unorthodox manner so the environment I create is big and expressive, both abstract and representational at the same time.”  

Stay tuned to see how this project develops!

The Gallery At Bank Quay House, Warrington

We are happy to welcome our first Textile and Crafts artist Laura McFadden.

Laura is concerned with bringing relevancy back to craft based skills across different generations. "The residency is a fantastic opportunity for me and something that I am hoping to open up to others. I love the space and in having it has allowed for the very beginnings of Tight-Knitt Crafts collective."

Workshops and D.I.Y crafts for Tight-Knitt are at planning stages but will be delivered from the new studio soon.

     We were looking around for buildings we could lease and this is was one of the central offices which has been refitted. We could choose the interior layout that we wanted and any optional extras and we decided that Bank Quay House was the building that exactly suited our needs. The money per square footage is very competitive; the owners Martin & Peter are very approachable and very, very good at listening
