Worktown Exhibition Official Opening

An artist with enthusiastic purchasers of Worktown: The Drawings of Falcon Hildred
Last Thursday evening, 11 October, saw the official opening of Worktown: The Drawings of Falcon Hildred at the Coalbrookdale Gallery, Ironbridge Gorge Museum.  The evening was very well attended and everyone greatly admired the range of drawings which covered nearly 50 years of observation of the changing industrial scene and was both celebratory and nostalgic. Speakers of the evening included the artist himself, Falcon Hildred, Steven Miller, Chief Executive Officer Ironbridge Gorge Museums, Dr Peter Wakelin, Secretary of the Royal Commission, and Harriet Delvin, committee member for West Midlands HLF. 

The free-to- enter exhibition will run until 30 April 2013 and will be open 10am-5pm, Monday-Friday. For further details, please call 01952 433424 or visit Ironbridge Gorge Museum. Future venues displaying the original artwork will include the National Library of Wales, Aberystwyth, and Newport Museum and Art Gallery. An exhibition of reproduction images will also be displayed at the Museum of Slate, Llanberis. Please check our website for further information on future events. The beautifully illustrated catalogue , a permanent record of Falcon’s work, and written by the Royal Commission’s Secretary, Dr Peter Wakelin, is now available to buy from the Royal Commission for £16.95 or at the special price of £15.30 for Friends.
