Here is the exhibition blurb:
One recently discovered photograph album, eight selected Victorian portraits of eight Barnsley characters past, reworked and represented by eight local artists.
In this, the first temporary exhibition to take place in the new Experience Barnsley Museum & Discovery Centre, see the album, its portraits and the works of a wonderfully eclectic selection of local artists (established and emerging) each making a new piece work in response to this fascinating series of lavishly staged Victorian portraits of eccentric and influential Barnsley characters from the period.I made a series of drawings based on my image of 'The Grandson of Joseph Crabtree' along with an eclectic animated piece. The work and the original photo appear below.
