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

/exhibitions/5a

A unique opportunity to see the collection in one exhibition!

Russel Howarth was a renowned and respected local artist, with a 70-year commitment of unwavering effort to draw and paint the Saddleworth area. 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 exhibition will help provide the support as Russel wished. Please arrange your purchase directly with our reception 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.
