STEELMAKING WOODCUTS AND OTHER WOODBLOCK PRINTS BY VIVA TALBOT (1900-1983)
Exhibition - 30th March - 18th July 2010
Dorman Museum, Linthorpe Road, Middlesbrough TS5 6LA
Come along to this unique exhibition which includes over forty woodblock prints, fifteen of which depict the process of making steel. The unusual subject matter is the work of a Yorkshire artist called Viva Talbot who created the images during the 1930s when it was almost unknown for a woman to be allowed access to the grimy and dangerous steelworks.
This exhibition, developed by Dr Joan Heggie, contains personal items such as sketch books, photographs and even one of Viva's diaries.
To learn more about this fascinating woman artist and to see images of Teesside steelmaking unlike any others, vist the Dorman Museum.

The exhibition is accompanied by a public talk by Dr Heggie at 7pm on the 17th June at the Dorman Museum.
