About Us



In the wake of the Coronavirus, we, like all other businesses, have had to react. Firstly, the Gallery will remain open until further notice, but we have made the decision to close on Sundays and Mondays, meaning the Gallery will be open only from Tuesdays to Saturdays. If you intend to visit the Gallery, we advise you call ahead to ensure that we are open for your arrival.

If circumstances change with opening hours, or if we need to close, we will inform all of our clients and collectors via our newsletter and social media.

We will do all we can to continue our trade, and to keep the ecosystem of contemporary art in Manchester thriving. Our artists will be working just as hard throughout the coming weeks and months, and our responsibility is to ensure their brilliant new work finds an audience, finds a wall, and appreciative eyes.

As such, any and all new work will be shared with our valued clients, you, on our website, by newsletter, and on social media.

Over this difficult period, all works are still available for purchase, and we are offering FREE DELIVERY for all paintings valued over £300. If you wish to contact the Gallery, we are available by email and by telephone at 0161 835 2666.



Contemporary Six is a leading independent art gallery located in the heart of the city centre of Manchester - opposite the beautiful Town Hall. Established in 2010 by Alex Reuben, the gallery is known for offering a warm and friendly welcome to art enthusiasts, collectors, and new visitors and explorers to the city. Visit today and enjoy original works of quality and substance by emerging and internationally acclaimed artists. Specialising in original paintings - landscapes, portraits, and abstracts - handmade prints, and sculptures and ceramics, Contemporary Six boasts variety in artworks, with integrity and substance a priority. We look forward to welcoming you to the Gallery.


The gallery receives and showcases brand new work on a regular basis, and is committed to hosting a number of solo exhibitions, group-shows, and artists' talks and events every year. Follow us on social media [links at the bottom of this page] to keep up-to-date with events in the gallery, or sign up to our newsletter to receive information and invites to exhibitions. 



We offer the 'Own Art' scheme, which allows you to split payments over ten months, interest-free — making quality art more accessible. For example, a £500 painting would cost only £50 per month over ten months.
