Welcome to our Cross Street Arts website!
Cross Street Arts was set up as a charitable organisation in 2004. The studios and gallery space are based in the village of Standish on the outskirts of Wigan.
The organisation aims to provide, where possible, access to studio spaces and exhibition opportunities for professional artists. One of our goals is to create greater access to the visual arts and encourage learning and appreciation of these in the public arena.
The Cross Street Arts community is made up of 40+ members including studio-based professional contemporary artists and a growing number associate artist members. All of our members contribute their time and talents to the successful running of Cross Street Arts.
Our artists exhibit art work both locally and internationally. We hold regular group exhibitions including open studio events. Our artists also facilitate a stall and events at Standish Christmas Markets each year, and deliver creative talks and workshops. We have a dedicated, specialist board of Trustees who volunteer their time to govern Cross Street Arts.
Each of our artists has a dedicated webpage on the website which shares their art work, artist bio, contact details and a list of their exhibitions.
