The exhibition showcases the work of over forty elected members. Paintings, drawings and prints in a variety of media including oil, watercolour, pastel, and pen reflect varied interpretations of landscape, figure and still life by the artists.

From Day Month to Day Month TBA 2025> “The Russel Howarth Trustees Collection” > an art exhibition with works by Russel Howarth

Introduction to the artist

Russel Howarth was born in Oldham on the Lancashire side of the Pennines in 1927. After leaving school he took up a career as an engineer which he did until his retirement in 1992. It was after completing his engineering apprenticeship in 1950 that he took up painting in his spare time. In 1951 he was one of the first members of the Saddleworth Art Group (now the Saddleworth Group of Artists).

Living his life within the boundaries of Oldham it was not the local ‘millscapes’ that gave inspiration to his work, instead he headed over the hill into Saddleworth which is on the Yorkshire side of the Pennines. He recorded numerous views of the area with the ‘bleak’ farms and villages being captured often on a grey day typical of the atmosphere and weather of the area, it was these colours that were well suited to the muted tones and earthy colours he used. He painted primarily in oils on board and his draughtsmanship came through in simplifying forms and was also mirrored in many large drawings he did using the medium of pencil and charcoal.

Apart from painting he taught pottery at art classes until 1962.

Introduction to the exhibition

Following the death of artist Russel Howarth in 2020, the Trustees of Saddleworth Museum, Uppermill were honoured to act on behalf of the estate of Russel Howarth and, with other assets, offer this collection for sale. Russel intended that the proceeds go toward supporting and encouraging artists and ceramicists. The Russel Howarth Trustees will ensure that this will be the case.

This is our third gallery exhibition of the collection. We hope you can purchase one of these wonderful works of art and help us to secure Russel’s wishes. Thank you.

(Please note that when selected items are not on display, the whole collection is available to view, by appointment with our curator, in the purpose built external store at Saddleworth Museum.)
