Michael Cook at Melbourne Festival and The Manger Gallery

Michael Cook's paintings and drawings move between the Romantic and Visionary traditions in British art. This week, his work is featured at the Melbourne Festival as part of The Adam & Eve Project, with thirteen regional artists addressing the theme of the creation story. His Manger Gallery is a small, atmospheric gallery housed in a 19th century stable of his family home. It is located in Kings Newton, near the historic U.K. town of Melbourne, Derbyshire. Manger Gallery  will soon host a mixed exhibition ‘Seeing Stars’ beginning with Advent (December 1, 2017), and ending at Candlemas (February 2, 2018). Visit for more on the gallery.
