Cross Street Arts is a group of professional artists based in Standish, North Wigan.
Set up as a charitable organisation in 2004 as OK Studios, Cross St Arts aims to provide, where possible, access to studio spaces and exhibition opportunities for professional artists and to create greater access to the visual arts and encourage learning and appreciation of these in the public arena.
In addition to the eleven artists who have studio spaces, Cross Street Arts also offers membership to selected
artists who wish to be part of an artists' network but have no need for a studio space.
On this website you can find out about and view the artworks of all the artists who are members of Cross St Arts as well as the latest events at the studios.
The studio group hold an annual Open Studio event when the public are invited to view the artists' workspaces. All members are invited to exhibit at this event.
Cross St Arts has established links with local schools and provides tours of the studios and workshops for students.
Cross St Arts artists have recently commenced an innovative programme of art exhibitions in temporary gallery spaces. Cross St Arts aim to develop the exhibitions programme to include collaborations with community based groups, regional and nationally based artists groups, museums and galleries and to offer experience in curatorial practice and project management to its members.
