As part of the Heritage Week events at Leeds arts centre The Tetley, I’m doing a talk on brewery architectural history on Wednesday 10 September at 18.00. For booking details see The Tetley website. Look forward to seeing everyone there.
A lot of positive things have happened around the topic of postwar murals since I first began looking at them in the 1990s. Listings, conferences and books, all generate interest in an area that could do with even more research into the lesser-known artists of the time, especially those using ceramics and other non-paint materials. So this is just a reminder that my book, A Field Guide to Postwar Murals (Blue House Books, 2008) is still available through the blurb website, and best of all the ebook version (readable on ipads) is still under £2. There’s a 15-page preview on the blurb website.
