During a period extending over the late 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, a series of wonderful artists emerged in Barnsley.
Barnsley Art on Your Doorstep, a project running from 2012-2014, explored and showcased this rich and very often forgotten aspect of Barnsley’s heritage.
The results: a book – available for reference in Barnsley Library, a website, and an exhibition at the Cooper Gallery.
Barnsley Civic Trust is delighted to host an illustrated talk and presentation on ‘The Hidden Art of Barnsley’ on Monday 2nd March at 7.00pm.
Library @ The Lightbox – Barnsley’s Central Library
Art on Your Doorstep team members – Sally Hayles, Hugh Polehampton, Maureen Wilkinson and Fred Thompson – will provide a visual tour of the 2014 exhibition and discuss the publication and its research.
A unique event – not to be missed. Open to all.
