The Artlink gallery is currently holding its eighth annual Men's Work exhibition. This year, the show was given the title ‘Mark Making' and artists were asked to submit work inspired by this theme. Chosen for their creative merit and distinctive response to the theme, nine artists and an artist collective showcase their work in Mark Making.
