Northern Town

9 October 2020 – 12 December 2020

Location: Gallery 

A collaboration between artists Patrick Murphy and Anton Want, the Northern Town exhibition visually explores the realities and cultural mythologies of life in the hinterland of the North over the last 50 years, depicting how the region may have been represented and defined in writing, film and TV during the 20th century.

Michael Steer

9 October 2020 – 12 December 2020

Location: Gallery – Panorama

Michael Steer is a local painter who was born and raised in Barnsley. He studied Interdisciplinary Art and Design at University Campus Barnsley and currently works out of his studio in Wombwell.

Michael’s work concerns the ambiguity and connotations of language, exploring how statements can have profoundly different interpretations depending on the person viewing them. His paintings invite the audience to consider the hidden depths of simple statements and discover the inherent poetry of words.
