Saturday 4th March - Sunday 2nd April 2017 - 4.30pm – 9pm (Sat 4th), 11am- 6pm (Gallery open days - Mon-Fri till 2nd April)

In celebration of the 2017 International Women’s Day (IWD), Chuck Gallery invites you to a preview of stunning portraits from the Manchester-based female portrait artist, Jessica Ilatoda Omitola, in her first solo exhibition – UNMASKING

There will be an opportunity to meet the artist herself during this launch event which will be chaired by Arlene Isaacs-Lowe, Managing Director Moody’s Investors Services. Arlene was named in the 2016 powerlist list of the most influential people of African and Caribbean heritage in the UK coming number 3 on the list ahead of the likes of Sir Lenny Henry, Lewis Hamilton and Sir Mo Farah. She is also an advocate for women especially of black descent in the male-dominated Financial industry.

Unmasking will also feature other specially invited guests who are leaders and pioneers across their various disciplines and professions, engaging these inspiring and enterprising minds in discussions centered around this year’s IWD theme #BEBOLDFORCHANGE

Other highlights during the evening include a poetry reading by Chanje Kunda and a reading from ‘In the Ditch’ to mark the life of Buchi Emecheta, the renown Nigerian writer and activist who died on January 25, 2017, in London, United Kingdom
