Saturday 22nd May to Sunday 27th  June 2021 “The Russel Howarth Collection” > by the Russel Howarth Trustees


Russel Howarth was a renowned and respected local artist  with a 70-year commitment of unwavering effort to draw and paint the Saddleworth area. The link to an earlier collection catalogue pdf is here > Catalogue pdf.  and we will soon be making the whole catlogue available. Depicted here is a self portrait, c 1955, which was displayed at Russel’s exhibition, “Saddleworth in a Lifetime” , which was held in the museum during 2017.

Following the death of Russel last year the trustees of the museum were asked by the Russel Howarth executors to act as the Russel Howarth Trustees for that part of the estate primarily dedicated by Russel to support and encourage artists and ceramicists. Proceeds from this exhibtion will help provide the support as Russel wished. Please arrange your purchase direct with our recption during your visit.

If you cannot visit us a limited number of Russel’s art works are also available online. Order online here >  Art Online   or email curator@saddleworthmuseum.co.uk

All works are signed originals by the artist and are presented as framed by the artist.
