The Saul Hay Gallery off Castle St behind Bass Warehouse, M3 4LZ Manchester, United Kingdom
“Room 103: a visual tribute to George Orwell”
11th October to 11th November.

The Saul Hay Gallery will be opening our “Room 103”, containing paintings, sculpture, and video works paying tribute to the work of writer and journalist George Orwell.
The themes which artists have investigated in this work include issues arising from surveillance techniques, artistic resistance to state repression and the preservation of individual liberties and freedom of expression.
As curator-artist Glenn Ibbitson says “in these times of fake news and false media narratives, we need Orwell’s exemplar of moral integrity more than ever. He has set the conversational pattern amongst my artist friends for several years now, so I decided last year to test the waters and propose a tribute to him. This took the form of an online gallery blog, where like-minded makers could display any work reflecting ‘Orwellian themes’, or art which in some way bears the influence of his writing. From the beginning, I saw this as a virtual window display to attract the attention of a gallery. Ian and Catherine, who operate Saul Hay lent their support at a very early stage.”
The catalogue of works includes contributions from artists from the United States, Italy and Catalonia, reflecting Orwell’s international importance.
We are delighted to welcome the great man’s son, Richard Blair, to open the preview at 6pm on October 11th.
