About Us

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.
