Coalface Drawers

Ashington Group 90

Sat 5th October – Sun 5th January, Woodhorn Museum

10am - 4pm Included with Annual Pass admission

In October 1934, Robert Lyon arrived in Ashington for the first time to deliver a class on Art Appreciation to a group of local mine workers. What began as a series of slideshow lectures soon developed into a career defining project for Lyon and a lifelong passion for the soon-to-be ‘Ashington Art Group’.  

Reuniting artworks and artefacts back together where it all began in Ashington, ‘Coalface Drawers’ offers an exciting opportunity to revisit the beginnings of the Pitmen Painters project and to celebrate their innovation and vision anew, nine decades on. 

Ashington Group 90 is supported by The Ashington Group Trustees, Northumberland County Council, Arts Council England, Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art and Sir James Knott Trust.
