If Not Here Where

Fletcher Moss Art Gallery, The Old Parsonage
Monday 8th July - Sunday 21st July 12.00 -4.00pm
Preview: Sunday 7th July 1.00 - 5.00pm

As the Manchester International Festival descends upon the city centre, in the leafy suburbs of Didsbury a smaller but no less significant event unfolds. 'If Not Here Where', is a contemporary art exhibition with a difference. In the walled garden of Didsbury Parsonage, perhaps Manchester's best kept secret, a Garden Party in conjunction with Didsbury Parsonage Trust and Friends of Fletcher Moss Park and Parsonage Gardens, launches the event on July 7th. If Not Here...Where else would you wish to be? Art celebrating life.
