Commercial artists and illustrators connected to Manchester and Salford, and working for agencies/studios, in-house or freelance, are invited to take part in the second Manchester and Salford Illustrated (MASI) exhibition, which will run from 28th November at 52 Princess Street in Manchester.

The exhibition is being run by Wood Street's Creative Friends, and professionals and students can submit work based around the theme of Everyday Manchester and Salford, with the closing date next Friday 8th November.

Entries for the exhibition will be selected by a panel of creative industry professionals and illustrators including top graphic designer Trevor Johnson, famed for his Hacienda stuff. The selected images will feature in the exhibition and an online gallery, and reproduced as limited edition signed prints, postcards and other merchandise which will be sold to raise funds for the Wood Street Mission.

The Mission, set up in 1869, helps stave off child poverty by providing clothes, school uniforms, bedding, household items, toys and baby equipment to families struggling to get by. As child poverty grows in both Salford and Manchester, thanks to ConDem Government cuts, falling living standards and energy company exploitation, the Wood Street Mission is as vital now as it was in Dickensian times.

"MASI was really successful in 2011, and this time we want to make even more people aware of the immense commercial illustration talent we have here in Manchester and Salford" says Stephen Hey, of Wood Street's Creative Friends "By buying a print visitors will be able to take home a distinctive piece of art which won't cost a fortune, and directly help local children living in poverty."

Just a quickie to say what a fabulous idea this is, and for such a good cause. It will also help the struggling artists to gain recognition as an artist, by showcasing their work to a target audience, whom in turn will buy and enjoy their artwork, thus raising funds for a good cause. Sounds good to me. I was going to enter myself, but one week to create a masterpiece is pushing it. But good luck to all the artists who have entered their artwork. It's nice to see that Salford folks can be constructive, and pull together as a city, to help such a good cause. Well done everybody. :)
