A Stalybridge painter and a photographer shared a dream of opening a fine art gallery in the town.


So when the property at number 23 Melbourne Street became available painter Christine Ormsby and photographer Peter Aitchison wasted no time.


Christine said: Peter and I both had the same vision of what the gallery would look like so we went to view it and that evening we sat down with Peters wife, Debbie, discussed how the partnership would work and Gallery 23 was born.


A drinks reception was held to launch the gallery, attended by the Mayor of Tameside, Councillor Brenda Warrington, along with artists and art lovers.
