Summer Showcase of Barrow Society of Artists 2017

13th May 2017  11:00 AM  – 5th July 2017  04:00 PM 

We're welcoming back the talented Barrow Society of Artists to the Dock Museum. We have works from well-known local artists such as Al Collister, Mary Calvert and Steve Kenny and also some new artists to the Society such as Faiqa Aslam, Jack Webster and Cathy Holmes. The paintings, watercolours, sketches and pottery are fabulously varied. Most works are for sale.

This year, the Barrow Society of Artists decided to reflect on the 150th anniversary of creation of the Borough of Barrow, with a special panel of works of the Town Hall, Queen's at Biggar, Sailboating in the Park, Piel and many others.

"It's been an interesting challenge to produce some pictures that represent 150th anniversary of the Borough. I'm delighted to see so many new artists this year." Barbara Trescatheric, Exhibition Organiser.
