This is Caroline Johnson's first solo show in a public gallery. Her highly graphic, graceful paintings and drawings reflect both the vibrancy of recent changes and the history of Salford and Manchester. Caroline's contemporary urban artworks give a fresh interpretation to the cities' architectural icons while discovering the hidden charm of overlooked corners
