People who have saved this event:



Our long-awaited exhibition of work by Edwin Butler Bayliss will illustrate his importance as one of the few 19th century painters of the industrial landscape. The son of a local ironmaster, his inspiration came from the foundries of the Black Country, particularly the area around Bilston and Tipton close to the Hickman furnaces. The exhibition will include work by other artists inspired by the industrial landscape such as William Sidney Causer and Richard Samuel Chattock. Work by contemporary artists including Arthur Lockwood and Robert Perry also feature, exploring how the Black Country continues to inspire today.
