Charles Rennie Mackintosh is in town ....... from today until June 5

Now last month I wrote about Charles Rennie Mackintosh, the Scottish architect, designer and artist and Peter Topping’s homage to the man which consisted of a set of attractive picture postcards.

Well, starting today Peter is exhibiting a collection of material directly influenced by Mr Mackintosh to coincide with the 150th anniversary of the Scottish artist’s birth.

The exhibition will be at Tutku Cafe, 428 Barlow Moor Road, M21 8AD, is hosted by Chorlton Voice - AKA Chorlton Civic Society and Paintings from Pictures, and will run from May 23rd to June 5th.
This is the next project in a series of homages to great artists by Peter Topping.

Peter was influenced by Charles Rennie Mackintosh on a recent visit to Glasgow where he visited several exhibitions that had been put together in memory of his 150th anniversary.

Although Mackintosh was a great architect, Peter’s exhibition concentrates on his stained glass and furniture designs.

Peter has picked out iconic features and created his own designs in the style of Charles Rennie Mackintosh.

Come along to Tutku cafe and see the exhibition.
