neo:10YEARS showcases work from many of the successful artist-organisers who have spilt paint in the studios and contributed to Bolton’s thriving art scene and far beyond. neo:studios celebrates its 10th anniversary of providing studio spaces, residencies, art prizes and a successful gallery – a great venue for contemporary art.
neo:artists have a strong history of innovative printmaking and have consistently contributed to print shows in the UK and internationally. The studios have hosted an internationally well regarded bi-annual prize celebrating cutting edge print processes and thoughtful engagement with contemporary issues and ideas.
neo:studios have an exciting programme of residencies and take seriously their role in furthering the careers of emerging artists. Over 200 artists have worked in the studios at Corporation Street utilising the workshop areas and extensive printmaking facilities. Exhibitors in the show include many of these people and the key artist-organisers who have made the studios successful by working behind the façade of the gallery, the website and with many partners in Bolton including the University, the Council, local businesses and other galleries.
Vistiors to the neo:galleryX may chose to have an artist-led tour of the studios over both weekends, just ask the staff.
