Stephen Todd & Beverley Museum collaboration


The Humber Estuary provides me with a huge source of inspiration and ideas for my paintings. Because of this interest I have been invited to collaborate with Beverley Museum and Art Gallery for a show on The Humber. The show will be in May 2017 to coincide with Hull as the City of Culture, and is planned to tour to other parts of the region.
As well as my paintings the show will include paintings and objects from the museum’s collection that explore the incredible history of the Estuary from remarkable iron age remains; to its role in the mass migration from Scandinavia and Baltic countries to Canada and the US up to 1914; to Zeppelin raids in the First World War and building Airships (R100); to the key strategic role it played in the Second World War. The show will give me an opportunity to respond to the objects and history of the Humber through my work.
