Wall

Wall is a new space within The Hillary Step for the display of Contemporary Art. Where once a rug hung to disperse the sound of voices, is now a new threshold for engaging in the visual. Wall allows for the exploration of potential debate, discussion and quiet contemplation.

The works on display will seek to utilise this unique space.  It aims to generate a wider response to the public viewing of works from emerging and established artists in Manchester.

With regular exhibits, Wall aims to support the artists involved not only by aesthetic appreciation for their works but for the opportunity to purchase the art displayed.

For further information or details on how to exhibit works, please contact Rosalind, Curator and GM at The Hillary Step on 0161 881 1978 or email wall@thehillarystep.co.uk

Wall is delighted to announce its first exhibition, Picking Sides by Bernard Kelly.  A selection of paintings from this series will be open to the public at The Hillary Step with its preview this Thursday 9th July from 6.30pm

Picking Sides puts the national game of football centre stage and acknowledges some of the teams, players and managers who “have left their mark on the history of the English game.” (Bernard Kelly, Picking Sides, Iconic Footballers and Managers Official Programme, 2012.)

With most of Kelly’s  paintings containing 12 faces as reference to Christ’s disciples, he plays with the notion of Football being described as a new religion. In doing so Kelly combines two of his passions of football and Pop Art.

Wall celebrates Picking Sides, in exhibiting 12 paintings from the series.

Cheese Board

Cheese Board

Since before cheese was invented man liked cheese. If it could serve as blood and travel through veins it would, that’s how good cheese wants to be.

The Hillary Step cheese board is rather good. Choose Hard, Soft and Blue Cheeses or combine Charcuterie slices of Coppa – Italian cured spare rib (neck) of pork, well marbled and tender. Rich and meaty flavour, Salami Napoli – A coarse cut peppery salami from Campania, Italy and Chorizo Picante – Classic chorizo from Leon flavoured with sweet and spicy smoked paprika. 1 portion includes 3 slices of all 3 meats for extra fun!

All soured from Hickson & Black’s, Chorlton (881 2001)

Cheeses available from 29th June are:

 

Greenfields Crumbly Lancashire

Hard, pasteurised cow’s milk, vegetarian rennet

Crumbly Lancashire, the most popular form of the cheese eaten today, was developed by the great-grandfather of Greenfields Dairy present MD in the early 1950s. Smooth, slightly acidic and of course, crumbly, this Lancashire has a buttery flavour and satisfying texture.

 

Cropwell Bishop Stilton

Blue, pasteurised cow’s milk, vegetarian rennet

Blue Stilton has over 300 years of tradition and was granted PDO in 1996.

This example of the cheese has been made by the Skailes family for three

generations at their Creamery in the Vale of Belvoir, Nottinghamshire. It is smooth and creamy with a distinct aromatic bitterness.

 

Taleggio

Soft, pasteurised cow’s milk, traditional rennet

Taleggio is a washed rind cheese from Lombardy. It is considered to be one of the oldest soft cheeses, tracing its roots back to the 10th century. Progressive brine washes give the cheese it’s characteristic pink/orange coloured rind and almost meaty savoury smell. This excellent version is still matured in caves.
