We had a word with some of those who have donated items...

Louise Garman has exhibited at the neo:print prize in Bolton, Nasty Women in Liverpool, The Mall Galleries in London and currently has works on show in Spain. For the Salford Star auction she has donated a stunning original piece called Sticks and Stones, that has a recommended retail price of over 1,000, and a startling solar plate limited edition piece called Double Portrait (Zoe).

"Sticks and Stones is an original piece I did five years ago" she recalls "There's three images incorporated into it. The first is a double image of Charlie on acetate which has been solar plate etched. The second image comes from asking my close friends all the abusive things they've ever been called, and without exception everyone remembered them.

"The third image in the piece are those words again...but when I was a kid there was a rhyme mum told me 'Sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me, and when I'm dead in and in my grave you'll be sorry for what you've called me'. It's about how you don't forget anything anybody has ever called you and the power of words."

Louise, who went to Chelsea School of Art, studied anatomy at the Royal Academy, trained at the Slade last year and has a studio with neo:artists in Bolton, rarely sells her work...

"I have sold some but no, because when you start focusing on selling, you think about what the buyer wants to buy and you compromise" she explains "It's all experimental and pushing boundaries..."

This is a one-off opportunity to get a real unique piece of one-off fine art. Meanwhile, fellow neo:artist, Denis Whiteside, has donated an incredible embossed 3-D canvas titled Political Spin, after the Dead Or Alive song, You Spin Me Round...

"It's cyclic, and it goes round and round and it describes itself" says the Broughton artist who recently won the prestigious John Purcell Paper Award "It's what political spin is all about..."


While the auction at Charles Taylor happens tomorrow, Thursday 6th December at noon, the Salford Star pop-up shop and a new exhibition begins today 5th December, and is open until 5pm

FROM HANKY PARK TO LITTLETON ROAD VIA LANCASTER BOMBERS AND THE 'MONKEY RUN'

Salford's Margaret McHale turned one hundred this week as her six children and relatives gathered for a huge party at The Broughtons Care Home. Born in Hanky Park, Margaret moved around central Salford, to Ellor Street, Warburton Street and finally to Littleton Road, as part of the slum clearances.

A proper Salford lass, Margaret worked on Lancaster Bombers during the war and as a machinist in Strangeways, and, as the family partied with residents and staff, there were a zillion anecdotes that will echo with loads of local families.
