Blackpool Art Society: 135

Years

To celebrate its 135th anniversary, Grundy Art Gallery has invited The Blackpool Art Society to present an exhibition of work from its current membership. 

Alongside this, a selection of works made by and/or donated to Grundy Art Gallery by John and Cuthbert Grundy will also be shown. 

As well as being founders of Grundy Art Gallery, John and Cuthbert Grundy also had a long-standing relationship with The Blackpool Art Society both as members and office holders. Exhibiting their work as part of this exhibition recognises some of the impacts that the Grundy brothers had on the artistic community of their time as well as highlighting their ongoing legacy in the form of the Grundy Art Gallery and its collection.
