Organized by: The Ropewalk

Event Navigation

Michael Scott’s (1946-2006) paintings are held in private collections throughout the world and in public collections including Ferens Gallery. He grew up in the Hessle Road area of Hull after the family moved there from Peterhead when he was ten. His father worked for over 20 years as a labourer in Broady’s, a pipework and ship repairers based at the Fish Dock. Michael spent his holidays as a university student working alongside his dad. The paintings in this exhibition show how the camaraderie and dignity of the workers affected him deeply when he turned to painting some years later.

The exhibition in the Artspace is open every Monday to Saturday from 10am to 5pm and on Sundays and Bank Holidays from 10am to 4pm.  Admission is free
