studios for artists and creative businesses


Co-collaborater, neighbour and gallery venue for our Comme Ca Art x AWOL Studios Open Call Exhibition, here’s a bit more about the awesome Comme Ca Art.

Established in 1994, Comme Ca Art pioneered the creation of alternative exhibition venues throughout Manchester City Centre, offering up and coming artists the opportunity to showcase their works to a wide and varied audience.

In autumn 2015 CCA opened the doors to the brand new CCA GALLERY at Hope Mill in Ancoats, Manchester. As well as working on an enviable Exhibition Programme, including the Comme Ca Art X AWOL Studios Open Call Exhibition, the gallery is used for Meet the Artist Brunches, Pre-Preview Viewings and Artists in Residence. 

“The Comme Ca Art X AWOL Studios Open Call Exhibition is one of the highlights of my year. It’s always exciting to see which artists the Judges have selected and even more exciting to curate the exhibition at the Comme Ca Art Gallery. It’s a great opportunity for artists to meet other artists, for art lovers to find a new piece for their collection and for an artist to win the cash prize and Cass Art voucher. We can’t wait to see this year’s selected artists.” Gallery director Claire Turner
