Lowry and the Sea

Wed – Sun, 11am – 4pm

Granary Gallery

Lowry and the Sea explores the artist’s connection to Berwick and his lifelong fascination with the sea.

LS Lowry is one of Britain’s most recognisable artists, best known for his industrial landscapes. However, the sea was a constant presence in Lowry’s life. During his childhood he enjoyed regular family holidays on the Lancashire coast. Later he travelled extensively throughout the British Isles and regularly visiting the North-East and its coast. He first visited Berwick-upon-Tweed in the mid-1930s and continued to visit the town until his death in 1976, perhaps drawn by its clear air and views out to the North Sea.

Featuring works on loan from The Lowry, Salford, The Arts Council Collection and several private collections, this is the first curated exhibition of Lowry’s works in Berwick-upon-Tweed for 10 years.

Tickets are available from 1 April.
