The Pitmen Painters 3 – 10 March 2018

A heartwarming celebration of working men by Lee Hall

In 1934, a group of Ashington miners and a dental mechanic hired a professor from Newcastle University to teach an Art Appreciation evening class. Initially unable to understand each other, together they embarked on one of the most unusual experiments in British art as the pitmen learned to become painters. Within a few years the most avant-garde artists became their friends, their work was taken for prestigious collections and they were celebrated throughout the British art world; but every day they worked, just as before, down the mine.
