Northern Soul / Ian Scott Massie

Saturday 22 May to Sunday 11 July 2021


Northern Soul is a journey through the north of England, exploring the personality of its towns and countryside through a series of watercolours and screen prints by artist Ian Scott Massie. Ian says:

“It’s about the places I’ve known and painted, and what part they play in this complex, careworn, mountainous, multifaceted, wavetossed, warm-welcoming, windblown, freezing, friendly, tough spirited, tenderhearted, rusty, rebellious, ruinous, green, golden, chilled- out, challenging, deeprooted, dale-scattered, subtle, smoky, special land.”

The exhibition takes place in the Museum’s art gallery, which is open during the Museum’s normal opening hours. Exhibitions are free of charge to visit.
